Black and White Wednesday #4 – Star Anise

Star Anise

Star Anise

My submission to Black and White Wednesday.

I love star anise as a spice and a photographic object. It is such a punchy spice but so elegant in appearance. I took this shot last year when I made a Turkey and Shitake Mushroom stew. I used the 2.8 macro lens. A very beautiful lens that I do not use enough of.
