“To me, photography is an art of observation. It’s about finding something interesting in an ordinary place . . . I’ve found it has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with the way you see them.”
~ Elliott Erwitt
This year the Farmer’s Market has easily become the highlight of my week. What a delicious ritual, this. My family, my community, and the freshest, most vibrant, most vitalizing foods in the city. It’s the greatest way to start the weekend. Damian sipping on his black coffee, Waits sucking on his carrier strap, and me: nibbling off of every vendor’s table. Heaven!
This is the first year I’ve eaten so specifically seasonally, and I can sense the impact in my body. I’m eating high-raw, high-organic, and highly local plant foods. And it feels AMAZING! Each week at the market Damian and I choose a special ingredient, something new and unique and at the peak of it’s season. The week we took these pictures, we stumbled upon the glory that is . . . the Fava Bean!
Berry season is still in full swing, though by now we’re moving away from strawberries, into blues and raspberries, and heading full force towards delicious blackberries (the scourge and the treasure of the Pacific Northwest!)
We’ve been eating stir-fried snap peas for weeks. Divine!
