First Quarter Butternut Butternut squash in first quarter phase. I have some lovely butternut squash, but these are not those. I shot these black and whites with film about a decade ago using butternuts from my garden. Butternut Squash, last quarter phase. I love their shapes, so voluptuous and sensual, and reminding me so much of the moon in her phases. Butternut, full of mystery. And those twirling tendrils, both the tendrils and the shadows they cast, delicate but definite. Butternut has landed. I still scan my black and whites in full color, and they appear here in RGB, not grayscale, to maintain the integrity of all the gray values. At one point I had thought the resolution and detail of these scans was fine, but now I’m considering a negative scanner to capture all those black and whites.
