My kingdom for a fork

I made this picture for our annual Asparagus Fest tab cover. I shot a couple different set ups with bunches of asparagus, and I thought that a single spear on a fork might make a nice, graceful shot. Problem was I didn’t have a fork. I scrounged around the office, and finally finding one in the old pressroom of all places (what the press guys need with a fork, I don’t know). It was really dirty, covered with ink, grease and dirt (what they did with it, I don’t want to know). But I cleaned up with liberal amounts of soap, water and elbow grease. I set the fork in my handy little can of Play-Doh and stuck the asparagus on top. The resulting shot is hopefully an elegant picture of a speared spear.
