Onion ring by cristinaledesma33

Onion ring

A hippo sandwich is easy to make.
All you do is simply take
One slice of bread,
One slice of cake,
Some mayonnaise
One onion ring,
One hippopotamus
One piece of string,
A dash of pepper -
That ought to do it.
And now comes the problem…
Biting into it!
- From Recipe for a Hippopotamus Sandwich by Shel Silverstein
I love the Silverstein poem and the minimalist composition. I just wish that either the onion rings were not cut off at top and had a bit of head room, or were cropped a little more. I admire your coming up with photo and literature pairings for a whole year.

Great macro, nice dof, great poem.

I'm impressed with the poetic inspirations as well and really like how you could get a new look at an oft shot subject. Not sure about that cropping, but do like the negative space.

@granagringa Thank you! Sometimes there is nothing around and you just have to make do.
