The end of 2017 is near and many of us indulge ourselves on over-abundant festive dishes during the holiday season. Food is my biggest passion, but to me the holiday season is a time for reflection, contemplation, equilibrium, love, respect and thankfulness. This photo is a ‘behind-the-scenes’ shot of a new series titled ‘Natural Beauty’ - a photo series celebrating fruits, vegetables, herbs and spices that are healthy, nutritious and/or medicinal. Avocado is one of those fruits. I took this shot while making an avocado-olive oil-honey hair mask.
