Photo Prayer 2022-12 -- Watermelon Rinds

Thanks, Mary Brent, for the delicious watermelon wedges, such sweet tiny triangles of red bordered with wide white and heavy green. I must say, they were nicely proportioned. I should have photographed them before eating them. They could have been arranged in a graphic nine-fold mandala. Hungry, I did not think of them as photogenic. Instead, I anticipated their taste, then used my fingers and teeth. Only afterwards did the rinds cry out for a portrait. Look, now they are immortalized in pixels in cyberspace, poor testimony to your simple but elegant thoughtfulness. We all want to be recognized for great things but small gestures count as well.
