Peanuts have become a primary food source for me over the past few years, as they have the protein, fat and carbs that I need to consider in my diet. They are also an interesting photo source, but limited as they are so small. To counteract the small I use a magnifier and shoot close to the subject, giving each nut it's own identity, and perhaps even it's own personality.
The abstract and random patterns that evolve create a pleasant contrast in each shot, with the shapes of the nuts becoming varied and the negative dark space between them pulling everything together in a unified manner.
