When I saw the weekly photo challenge was ‘layers’ I immediately thought of a watercolor piece of art and how the layers of paint create the image. But I don’t have a water color available right now to show you.
Then I thought of the layers of clothing that runners wear now as the weather gets colder. But I couldn’t think of a creative way to show you that.
I even thought about the bark on some trees I saw in California last week, the colors there were layered and the bark was peeling off. Interesting and pretty but not exactly what I wanted.
Then I thought about the saying we use when we’re trying to get to the truth – to peel away the layers like an onion – and I knew what I wanted to do.
Off to the grocery store I went to collect some onions, many sizes and colors, layering in the texture and interest…with one large red onion cut to more explicitly express layering.
Time to make some soup now.
