Started working on my first series of images conveying fear. The plan is not to include any subject that is inherently fearsome, like snakes, scorpions etc. The idea is to shoot ordinary objects in positions or compositions that evoke a feeling of fear. Or at least that looks like something fearsome.

The first image in the series is a piece of green bell pepper (capsicum). I found this in the grocery store. I was intrigued by the bent shape and the texture. I was sure I could convert the green to black, and black objects are sometimes fearsome. I used a sheet of red chart paper as the background and light from the window.

Conversion was as usual using the GIMP. The more I use it, the more indispensable it becomes.
