The first apples appeared at the farmers market last week. Although mounds of luscious peaches still beckon, they will soon be gone. The apples are harbingers of fall. This is my favorite apple photo. Taken with the Illustration setting on my Casio EX-Z850, it reduces the apples down to their sturdy roundness and differentiating colors. I like the way the wooden crates give structure to this picture. Those crates fascinate me. Useful and plain, they have mellowed over the years into a range of subtle silvery brown shades.
