Mikan are Mandarin oranges.
I apologise in advance if I'm tardy with commenting on your blogs or returning comments during the week... I will get to you though!
An interesting and pleasing composition.

@Lorraine: Thanks Lorraine. I thought this had some nice textures in b/w which is why I didn't go with colour...
WHY didn't you let us see the mikan in colour? They look so fine, like pieces of the sun!

@Japanalia: Yeah. Sorry about that.
I don't know why, but I get the feeling this was a cold day...

@Wolfgang Prigge: It was Wolfgang; end of December!
I like the B&W here, it puts the emphasis on form. I really like all these round objects on the table.

@Twelvebit: Thank you Twelvebit. That's what drew me to the scene. Wanted to focus on that more than the colour.
Nice b&w image! Love all the round shapes, too! =-) Great job!

@Jen: Cheers Jen!
The shapes are sharp and the woman's face is blurred which has made wonder about her. I would have liked colour for the mandarins.

@JoeB: Thanks JoeB. I was interested in the textures and the layout here (see my response to Twelvebit), and the colour, while beautiful, was kind of a distraction from what I wanted to focus on. But you know... orange.
Big wow here. Beautiful contrast...So powerful. Just love it.

I like the structure of the b/w pic. Well done!
