Purple Artichokes

I adore artichokes, and have always wondered: who was the first person to realize they were edible? This is one of my favorite polas I've ever taken. I shot this last spring, using our teal Honda Civic's hood as the background! The colors turned out really nice in the cool light of afternoon shade. I don't think it's obvious that I shot this photo outdoors in the shade, balancing the artichoke in one hand, using the car for a background, and trying to keep the camera steady in the other hand, but I did!

I always wonder this same thing about artichokes. Someone must have been REALLY hungry! I love this photo. It is already in my faves. :)
