Hard as Nails

The thing about onions and garlic is that they never give up. They are hardy little things. Dried for consumption they will grow from within themselves when left for long enough. Amazing resilience. Hope really springs eternal.


I desaturated the shot and processed it slightly "harder" to emphasise the hardiness of the garlic bulbs. Then I brought back a little bit of the green colour to express the hope that springs from the bulb.
