Corner Seeds

Corner Seeds

They’re seeds… that corn… They make corn… They’re corners… That works, right?

I used the flash on this one to enhance the contours of the dish and to bring out the satin and shine of the kernels. I found that flashing at 50% zoom brings out the best contrasts in macro photos, at least for me with the Canon G16.

For #FlickrFriday’s “Corner” and Macro Mondays’ “Seeds” challenges.

You can’t make a cornier pun than this one. But I can, of corn.

“The Leftovers” spoilers

Everyone’s worried that the end of the “The Book of Kevin” spoiled the series, when the beginning was even worse.  It showed a woman faithfully following a preacher who foretells an end of the world that never happens, and is ostracized in the end.  Which will be the outline of the series.  Nora will follow Kevin through his trying to stop the end of the world, and he’ll succeed, but when the end of the world doesn’t happen, Nora will be ostracized and deny she’s the mad woman on the roof.

I wonder how many times the world has been saved by those who warn of the end and go unacknowledged, even by themselves.  Or just give the world a little reprieve, while the rock slips a little bit more.
