I don't know why, but I was mesmerized by the brilliant orange color of these tiny kumquats at the farmers market. But really when you think about it, that orange wouldn't look as spectacular if it was blown up to the size of, say, an orange. Then it looks normal.
So it must be something about these miniature citrus that makes them look so photogenic, which is why I made this series of shots. Kumquats are originally from China, and the name is actually the Chinese pronunciation of the fruit and literally means "golden seed." Looks like a prosperous new year in the Single Guy household this year of the tiger. ;-)
