Multicoloured Carrots by May Lawrence
I love roasting root vegetables, especially baby carrots. When I saw this in my local supermarket, I was elated because it is very rare to find these Australian imported carrots in Bangkok, and in 3 colours too! I used to buy them all the time in Australia. I just love the freshness and the combination and the richness of the red, purple and green together. The antique bronze plate with the fine details on it went perfectly well with the texture of the carrots. The photo was taken late afternoon in my home studio and next to the window. It was shot with natural light and I played with my plantation shutters to let the light through.

At the moment she is trying to improve on her street photography on her travels as well.
