When you purchase chicken feet from the butcher it's not uncommon to find sores and abscesses. (This is not particularly surprising if you know anything about how chickens are farmed.) Normally I avoid using those feet in any of my photography, or else I remove the blemishes in photoshop. For these shots (recently added to my gallery Inside) I decided to go the opposite route: getting up close and intimate to present a macro view of the sores on a couple of feet from a recent purchase. Enjoy!
