This week’s theme for the Flickr Macro Monday group is “Found in the Kitchen.” From this week’s instructions (from Janet Towbin):
It is time for a Member’s Choice theme and green_lovers theme has been chosen for this week’s challenge. Here are Dorota’s thoughts on the theme:
“I thought that everyday we are in the kitchen, we are doing meals there, using kitchen tools, but we don’t look at them from a macro perspective. Maybe it will be interesting to show these ordinary things or activities in macro. So, you must only go to the kitchen, look around and take a creative macro. Maybe it will force us to think ‘what can it be?’ I hope, that for your photos there will be more things than knives, forks, and spoons.”
So there you have it, go raid the kitchen, and remember — there are plenty of items in the kitchen that are not knives, forks and spoons. So think about photographing something unusual. Helpful hint: do not balance an egg (or cherry tomato) on two forks—we have all seen about a thousand of those photos and that is more than enough.
This was a fun challenge! Exploring the kitchen, I wanted to show details in something we use almost daily… our juicer. We purchased our juicer secondhand this summer and have enjoyed trying different juicing recipes. Having watched Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead several years ago, we were intrigued by the health benefits of juicing. We aren’t disciplined enough to do a long juice cleanse, but we did try it for three days. Now, we regularly juice in the morning… apples, carrots, and ginger… and it’s a great way to start our day. Though the spikes in the mesh filter basket are tiny, they are powerful.

I had so much fun photographing the mesh filter basket, that I had a hard time choosing a favorite. Here are some of my other shots.
Thanks for looking!
