The beauty in rot

 

So I was cutting up some potatoes to cook, and as you can see this one was quite rotten in the centre.

I was quite taken with the image though – the black line that almost looks as though it has been drawn in ink: the contrast with the soft grey mould. Maybe it’s my long ago education as a biologist or maybe I’m a bit odd but I reached for my camera before I consigned the potato to history and the bin.
