“Dinner or Parasite?” by David A. Goodrum

Photo taken at home on July 18, 2022, 7pm. An image of uncooked rice noodles. Taken with an Apple iPhone 11 Pro, wide camera, 26mm, f 1.8, 1/60s Image desaturated; contrast increased.

Artist’s note: I am always on the lookout for small details, normally overlooked, that strike me as visually captivating, with abstract patterns often accentuated with desaturation and increased contrast. This open package of rice noodles caught my eye as dinner was being prepared.
