Playing with my food

While cutting celery the other day for dinner (and leftovers for my lunch the next day), I noticed the cross section of the celery bunch was quite pretty.  So first a took a few regular focus shots, then additional ones that were progressively more out of focus.  What I created were some really neat textures to use in the future.  
Huh, who knew you could make art by playing with your food?!

F 5.6  1/30   ISO:200 
I used the macro shot SOOC, then duplicated the layer a couple times, added the "bokeh" version of the same celery over top, then brushed away the center to see the details again.  

I will definitely be using the blurred version for future texture use.  Love the soft colors.
