It rained all day yesterday and it is still very wet this morning.  Since we had bananas on hand, I decided that I really wanted a bowl of cereal… as I cut up the banana I realized I had a bowl of “circular,” and thus my honey nut o’s became my subject matter.  Since I had a still subject, I experimented with camera exposure and white balance and took about fifteen pics before my stomach protested and once again I had to eat my subject matter.

This was taken with my Canon PowerShot SD950 IS, Digital macro (as it is my only camera), ISO 640, exposure bias -0.33 ev, aperture f/2.8, shutter speed 1.20 with White Balance set on “tungsten.”  Most of that is by default.  The controls I used was to set the exposure bias and the white balance (and digital macro, my favorite setting).

I used Aperture to add vibrancy to the “o” and the banana slice to its left. I only have a few days left to my trial.

  1. This made me smile! I loved bananas on my cereal when I was a child. The couterpoint of the one Cheerio near the center punches it up.

  2. Wow, that looks tasty. . . and very circular!!! Nutritious and fits the theme! What more could you want? Nice!

  3. This is a yummy shot! Makes me want a bowl of cereal. Great picture.

  4. You know you are a Photowalk blogger when you take pictures of your breakfast…

    Creative take on this theme (the bananas). They look very tasty, too…just perfectly ripe.

  5. Very creative use of bananas and Cheerios!! I hope the fruit tuck coes back so you can get some pictures.

  6. 15, you have steel resolve, I photographed my breakfast the other day, could only snap two. No Banana (too green still) but the Strawberry, Blueberries, Kiwi Fruit and the first passion Fruit off our vine this season were delicious.

  7. A fruit truck? Wow, that is unique. We get the odd ice cream truck in the summer but that’s it. I like your circles, both the fruit and the grain…

  8. Tammy — we hadn’t had bananas in a long time… but a fruit truck went through the park the other day and bananas were one of the many things he had on hand. Actually, now that I think about it, why didn’t I take pictures? It was certainly an “old-fashioned” way of buying one’s fruit & vegetables. I hope he comes back for more than one reason.

  9. What creative circles…that’s a good one (and if you HAVE to eat your subject matter, a healthy one too)! I can smell those, I haven’t had a banana forever…I think I might have to get some!

    I can feel a new program coming on….LOL
