Just look at that bloom on them!
Beverly Andrighetti: They may look good, Chris, but they taste a bit sour.

Oh, Beverly. I really am your biggest fan. You know that, don't you!
Beverly Andrighetti: That works both ways, Ginnie!
Wonderful. It would make a good Christmas card Bev
Beverly Andrighetti: Aw, thank you very much, Janet. I guess all that's missing would be having each grape with a dusting of snow on it.
I thought from the thumbnail that you had posted an early Christmas decoration picture grin
Beverly Andrighetti: Yes, it does have that festive look about it, Bill.
They look to be made of glass or ceramic.
Beverly Andrighetti: They really do, Mary, but these are grapes that have grown wild over our fence from our neighbours yard. They come back year after year.

Oh, a wonderful photo - blue wild grapes - but also a bit looking like Christmas balls -you chose a b&w background to let stand out the colours of the grapes.
Beverly Andrighetti: Thank you, Philine. I tried several other backgrounds before settling on B&W which I found made the colours of the grapes stand out best.
What inspiration you have, I must see what I can do with all the unripe grapes I have languishing on my vines.
Beverly Andrighetti: How wonderful that you have grape vines, Martin. Have you ever attempted to make your own wine?
Very good way you have processed this with the colour in the Grapes only.
Beverly Andrighetti: Thanks, Brian. Yes, I felt it gave better emphasis to the grapes with the B&W background.

The bloom looks like a frosting - just right for the Christmas decorations, Beverly
Beverly Andrighetti: I used to sugar frost fruit for Christmas arrangements, Lisl, so I see what you mean.

Hey, this is an excellent picture - going to be one of my likeys.
Beverly Andrighetti: That is so very much appreciated, Louis. Thank you!
Looks as though they're at the "noble rot" stage!
Beverly Andrighetti: I think you are correct, Tom.
Interesting and distinct processing as always Beverly!
Beverly Andrighetti: You are very kind, Fred. Thank you so much.

Beverly Andrighetti: Yes, it does rather remind me of coloured glass, Sally. Thank you so much.
