Teri and I were spending a week at Sandcastle Inn in Birch Bay, Washington near the Canadian border. The Inn is part of a timeshare we own and although we can go to more exotic places, we find this one of the most relaxing locations. During this trip we went to the market to buy some fresh fruit. We were about to prepare them to eat when I suggested we wait while I take some pictures of the fruit. After taking several shots, I assembled these, putting them together for this piece. The background is taken from a painting that was on the wall of our room.

While on our tour of Morocco we went to visit the family of this woman. She is cracking argan nuts with a rock. She separates the shells from the nuts, placing the nuts in the cloth covered bowl. She then places the nuts in the device to her right. She grinds the nuts that turn to a paste similar to peanut butter. This is her daily job, earning a good portion of the families income.
