This photo was taken at dusk. I had been taking photos of the purple ruffle basil from above, but the leaves always ended up blending in with the dirt. So, I got on the ground and aimed the camera up. Even though it isn't the best shot in the world, I do like how the perspective is off, and the basil looks like it could be a tree (with a little imagination) next to the chimney of the house.
This photo of the basil was taken at dawn, from the ground, too. Isn't it interesting how the colors change so much with the light? This basil looks like it could be at home in a coral reef with brightly colored fish swimming in and around its leaves.
