This week’s friday foto finder theme is “tomato.” While I certainly have taken many a tomato photo in recent years, I have also already posted many of them. Happily, here in New England, it is the season for fresh tomatoes. Indeed, this year, they are especially bountiful. I have joined a CSA again this year, and the tomatoes have been plentiful there. In addition, a close friend and neighbor has been experimenting with growing hydroponic tomatoes on her deck.
The experiment has been very successful, and she harvests many tomatoes each day. When I stopped by her house this afternoon, she had these guys all lined up to get a bit more time ripening in the sun. They caught my eye, and jogged my memory about the theme for fff this week. So, for a change, instead of digging through my photo library, I have some fresh photos.
I like the tomatoes’ rather menacing shadows.
Here, I liked the the low angle of the sun lit up the leaves.
Somehow, tomatoes have made very regular appearances on this blog, both in terms of photos and as a topic of discussion. Tomatoes, in fact, seem to be a running theme in my life, what with my use of the pomodoro method. It would seem that this is (at least) my 12th post with a tomato base. And it is probably safe to forecast that tomatoes will appear again here.
To see what other tomatoes have been served up for the fff theme, pay a visit to the friday foto finder blog!

Ha, in that last pic they all look like they’re standing up straight for the photo. Here it’s the tail end of the tomato season, which began in June…
On the subject of tomatoes: did you try eating the tomatoes when you were in Japan? I’ve never had ones as sweet as ones from that country… Honestly, there are some vegetables there that are so fantastic tasting I understand how people can enjoy them as snacks!
It looks like a tomato parade!
