Figure 1 is of spuds, fingerling potatoes to be more precise. It is, needless-to-say taken with my IPhone during a boring moment buying vegetables at the local farm-stand. What is appealing about potatoes photographically is their surface textures: cracks, bumps, crevices, and eyes. Eyes indeed, because that is the other point. They seem to take on magical shapes. The large one in front I imagine to be a fish or better still a manatee. The double tusker at top is certainly a walrus. And the curly one in the middle is perhaps a ghost. And, of course, the most appealing point of all is that we get to see the magical in the most mundane.
