Bok Choy

Every night, I give my rabbit a bowl of veggies. It tends to be mostly lettuce, with a smaller portion of another leafy vegetable and a little bit of an herb. For the past week or two, that second leafy vegetable has been bok choy.

Bok choy is similar to other leafy vegetables in that if you leave the bottom in an inch of water, eventually it will start to grow back. It gets these adorable little leaves in the centre, and they slowly grow up and out. Eventually the top of the bok choy turns into a spiral of leaves, which is what you see above.

This is one of those rare photos where, in my post-processing, I actually reduced the vibrancy of the colours. I found the original green of the image just too dark, yet somehow bright. I took down the vibrancy and ended up with a set of slightly faded green leaves.

I love that the faded colour lets the veins in the leaves stand out. It adds an extra bit of dimension that just wasn’t quite there when I left the vibrancy alone.

But, I’m curious. What do you think? Does the faded colour work, or would you have preferred a more vibrant green?
