The beet is the ancient ancestor of the autumn moon, bearded, buried, all but fossilized… – Tom Robbins
Today was one of those days when I had not a single creative idea for what to photograph. Then, I started dinner preparations and I was saved by the lowly beet and the humble sweet potato. These two vegetables are rock stars of the vegetable world, and yet from the outside they appear to be simply the ugly step sisters. It is no wonder most people never give these vegetables a chance considering their dirty, mottled and downright unappetizing exteriors. It makes me wonder whatever inspired that first early human to take a bite. What a surprise it must have been to discover the incredible beauty that lies just beneath the surface.
I suppose this is just further proof that you shouldn’t judge a book by its cover.
