Neon Greens

My least favorite of all vegetables, bitter melon.  God only knows why the Asian elders love this stuff.  I had a few young plants maturing in my dining room, and I thought I’d take a closer look at them.

I wanted to capture the capillaries and veins of its leaves, so I grabbed a flash and lit them from behind.  I didn’t want any of the soil/pot to be in the image, so I used a flash to block light spilling below.  The tiny aperture and a little post processing did the rest to isolate the leaf.
