Indian corn, also known as Flint corn or calico corn, is a true harbinger of autumn. The dried cobs of many-colored kernels were originally cultivated by Native American tribes, dating back to 1000 BC. Today it is mainly grown for decorative purposes, but can also be consumed in the form of hominy. I came across this perfect little still life on a table at the Santa Fe Farmer’s Market. There was no arranging needed – just a quick snap of the shutter as I passed by.
