The Layers of the Onion

I had a leftover half onion from a salad I made and left it on the counter to dry. I wanted to see what textures would come from it, and there is an old wives tale that you shouldn’t eat leftover onions because they absorb the bacteria in the air. This isn’t a fact, or proven, but I thought it would be interesting to test.

This onion started drying in a unique way. I really wanted to practice with my external flash to see if I could put some depth into the layers.
