Wax Bean Still Life-Black and White Wednesday #135

A gift of green and wax beans from a neighbor’s allotment at Skidaway Farms near Savannah yielded   a few leaves with beans attached. I was able to salvage a perfect leaf  and bean to photograph before it wilted. A quick handheld shot at ISO 1600 and an aperture of 4.5 gave me a perfectly exposed leaf with the yellow wax bean in the background. I loved the backlighting on the leaf highlighting the veins and the little dots of light in the glass. Simple beauty!
