Steamy greens

Spring is a great time to get beautiful, fresh asparagus.  A lot of people try to make their kids eat it by smothering it with cheese, but it is lovely just steamed and tossed with butter, minced garlic, chopped pistachios and lemon zest like I enjoyed tonight.

In this picture I wanted to play up the bright color of the asparagus, and show the detail of the well-used steamer.  A bit of bounce flash off the ceiling helped play both of them up.
