This is all to explain the picture of my baby sourdough starter sitting on the rail of my back stairs. There is one tiny patch of natural light that enters my kitchen. Sure, I can place my target in that brave little puddle of light, but my kitchen is yellow: the walls are yellow, the counter is yellow. Everything looks like it has jaundice. Not sexy for food photography. Natural light comes from outside, so outside I went. Thankfully the air was still and didn't knock the starter down onto the yard below... I would cry.
