I love how these pears are sort of maternal in their huddle, as though they are librarians at story time. I am trying to really see the color in the shadows of everything. I was at a fancy dinner recently; the white tablecloth had positively aqua shadows... the water goblets with lemon slices and glasses of white wine...all glittering and reflecting....sigh. It was a beautiful sight. I wonder if that is the appeal of a fancy dinner...the aesthetics.
