American Pie

pie and ice cream
It’s Pi Day, a general holiday for math and geekiness. And pie, of course. I couldn’t imagine a more Americana-looking photo than this one. Berry pie and vanilla ice cream, all on a sturdy white diner plate atop a red and white gingham tablecloth.

The high levels of saturation make the berries pop, while the adjusted contrast adds extra shine to their glaze. The focus is solely on the pie, the creamy ice cream merely a compliment that blends into the background. I can’t help but wonder: why are there two spoons?

Thanks to Steve Snodgrass for posting his delectable photograph with creative commons.
