How to picture the inside of something? I first thought of showing the inside of a flower, but I just did that. Various family members offered to open their mouths so I could take a nice photo of their uvulas, but I felt I could surely find something slightly more appealing…. A fruit? A vegetable? I found a tomato outside that had fallen to the ground, with a beautiful hole bored right into the top. If I squinted at just the right angle, I could see all the way inside the tomato. Unfortunately, my camera was not able to replicate the same feat (did I mention I wish I had a macro lens?). So I turned to the time-honored tradition of rummaging through the refrigerator. And there, in all its glory, was half of a red bell pepper. I took it outside (ignoring the raised eyebrows of family members who were convinced I had finally gone off the deep end), balanced it on my lap, and took a photo of its insides.
