Black & White Wednesday – Nutcracker

The Nutcracker

I have entitled this image “The Nutcracker”, pictured are some Macadamia nuts I recently received from Lorne Valley Macadamia in Port Macquarie. The nuts are sitting in a Mortar & Pestle that I purchased whilst in Bali.

I chose this image for a black and white conversion because I wanted the image to be about textures.  The shiny, smooth nuts, the coarse stone mortar and pestle and the woven pattern in the mat.

Hope you like the photo and the thoughts behind it.

Please visit my fellow photographers and see what they have been photographing this week for black and white Wednesday.

About Julie


  1. I’ve tried cracking macadamias out of their shells and it’s not easy! Good luck there! I tried with a hammer but I think smashing them in a mortar and pestle would work a lot better.

  2. That is an intriguing nut cracker. Great shot!



  3. Fascinating. I’ve never actually seen macadamia nuts *in* their shells. At first, I thought they were hazelnuts. Great choice for BWW, Julie. Thx for joining.
