    It's a fig thing.

    Shot in my backyard. Just. Before. I ate it. (Without regret.)

    Update: The Colorado Review was kind enough to pick up this image as their cover shot for their Fall/Winter 2007 issue!

      I'm really a fan of this. I'm calmed by the balance of grey and purple. Nice work.

      I keep looking for figs at my grocery store and they never seem to have any. Unless, of course, they see me coming and hide them.

      I think you may be out of luck for fresh ones, Mr. Power -- at least until Fall rolls around again. :(

      but the dried ones are still pretty tasty. even better: Fran's double chocolate figs. Now THERE's a heart attack worth chasing. ;)

      I dreamed last night that we met and you gave me this fig as a gift. Then we had a moment of sudden silence as we both pondered the beauty of figs.

      @lolobola love it. and we *are* nearing the end of fig season. makes perfect sense to take a moment to ponder it all.

      Awe-struck, completely. I found this photograph many months ago on and I loved it. Since my laptop broke down and I was forced to restart with all of my old data lost I felt compelled to find this photograph again. Today I was again able to lay my eyes on it. Even in the middle of class I searched, I am glad I did. :]

      @crazymigit you made my day -- thanks, friend. & ouch! Hope you get your data back.
