death to kabocha

I really dig this picture... it's Lav slicing up some kabocha squash for a hot pot dinner we had with my mom and sister a couple of weekends ago. There's something about the way the light is blowing out the exposure with the glare off the cutting board contrasting against the dark green of the kabocha squash skin... and the sinister looking position of the steel knife, waiting to make the next incision... it's just a natural moment that seems oddly tense and surreal to me.

We don't have any nifty photo editing software... just the "Paint" application that comes with Windows. So it's nice when the photo comes out without manipulation.
