Walking through my favorite Farmer’s Market with two
other photographers, we approached some vendors. They were under tents, and the
light was sumptuous. First was Tracie, who had a business selling gardening
supplies. I am glad that I asked how to spell her name!
Then, on to a tent with the sign, “Simply Organic”. Kathleen
sold wheat grains that were pressed into juices.
So in return for a photograph, I was given the ‘opportunity’
to try some kind of grass juice. It was bright green, and smelled like…, grass.
I politely held it to my lips. One of my photographer ‘friends’ said, “Bob,
your Adams Apple isn’t moving”. Shut up! Then I realized that her co-worker was
making a video of me ‘drinking’ their product.
Anything for a portrait.
