You guys are really too kind. I’m never sure how my images will be received because from beginning to end, I try to create for my own pleasure. What satisfies me doesn’t necessarily mean that anyone other than myself will like it. Whenever anyone says that they enjoyed viewing something I’ve done, I’m elated.

About the onions, they were in four boxes of 1000lbs each. The vendor was not selling any of these as they were already committed to several of the chain supermarkets in our area. The only reason they were at the market was that the owner brought a truck load of smaller boxes from the fields with her so that she could clip the tops and begin the drying process. Their works follows them where ever they go.

They are the same onion as those “world famous” ones grown in Vidalia, GA, but since they were grown near a little town by the name of St. Matthews, SC and not in Vidalia, GA they can’t be called Vidalia Onions. I guess the onion growers in Vidalia are a little touchy about that. So, these are being marketed under the name of Charleston Sweet Onions. The lady that owned them was kind enough to give me a couple. They are so delicious, that they can be eaten raw.

Of course, onions that were already dry and available for purchase were in plentiful supply, too. Thanks for the positive comments. :goodvibes

Both pictures are very good! But I like the first especially because of the "glow" - it looks wonderful soft!

Way to make an everyday thing such as a bunch of onions look so good! :). I like both images. The first would be my favourite but I really enjoy seeing the colors in the second.
