Photo of the Week 58
Thanks to another Friday arriving, it's once again time for Cramer Imaging's featured "Photo of the Week."  Drum roll, please.  We are pleased to announce that this photograph of ripe green grapes on the vine has been selected for our "Photo of the Week."

The story of this particular photograph begins with some grape vines growing outside.  They were reaching peak maturity for their fruit so I decided to start watching them for photo opportunities.

If anyone knows a thing or two about grape vines, they like to sequester their fruit in a mass of vines and leaves.  This does make finding the fruit a little difficult if the vines are allowed to grow wild.  If tamed and directed in certain paths, the fruit will be very easy to find and harvest.  These vines are not tamed in that way.

Also, right about the time of harvest, when the fruit sweetens, you will find lots of bugs hanging around the vines.  They are attracted by the sweetness of the juice found in the individual grapes.  These insects include bees, wasps, and hornets.  This influx of stinging insects made my shoot that day all the more precarious as I did not want to be stung.

Despite this, I tried shooting several different bunches of grapes in the hopes that there would be more than one good and useful photo to be had.  Sadly, this was not the case.  The bugs were not even cooperative while eating their fill of fresh grape juice.

Not everything was a loss as this bunch of grapes was rather visible, compared to the rest, and situated perfectly for a photo appearance.  Thankfully, I harvested my photograph because a few days later the grapes were themselves entirely harvested.
