I have never had more fun at the grocery store -- particularly in the produce department. Once permission to photograph was granted, we slapped on lenses (15mm fisheye and 100mm macro) and tried not to get in anyone's way (too much) (one tends to get lost in the world that appears through the viewfinder).
I've lost count of how many photos I took on this trip! Here are a few faves from Berkeley Bowl.
Artichokes -- one of my favorite veggies. I can get them in Wisconsin, but I'm usually lucky if I can find enough decent specimens for our whole family from the paltry number available at any given time.

And I guess I'm in: NaBloPoMo 2010! I've done this a few times over the blogging years -- successfully, for the most part. I think.
Arguably, signing up for NaBloPoMo might NOT seem to be one of the 10 Ways to Simplify Your Life -- this week's Ten on Tuesday topic -- but (and I'm totally riffing here) I might be able to spin it my way.
10 Ways to Simplify Your Life
- Make lists
- Clean out
- Pare down
- Establish a filing system
- Use online resources for banking & shopping (when it makes sense to do so)
- Cook & bake extra and pack yourself a lunch or two when putting away leftovers
