Mallorytown, Ontario, December 2006 [Click to enlarge]
Sometimes, when you see a crisp apple lying forgotten on the ground in the middle of a highway rest stop parking lot, you feel the need to get down on the ground to capture the moment. I've learned to not ask why I so often feel this need.

Last week's entry was the sixth in our increasingly popular series. This closeup of a glass goblet's stem attracted some of the most varied responses thus far. Interestingly, it also marked the first time some readers actually voted for someone else's submission! (I thought that was kinda neat...feel free to toss in a vote, if you wish.)
In the end, I was swayed by Judy's perspective. She saw in this image something I had not seen when I first composed it, namely a schematic of the female reproductive system. She challenged us all to look at it in a very different, and very funny way. That's the magic of photography, in my book, and it's why her caption takes it this week:
"Marian loved being a woman so much she had her womb memorialized in glass".Judy is a gifted florist and hands down one of the kindest bloggers you'll ever have the pleasure to read. If you haven't visited her site, Imagine What I'm Leaving Out, you're certainly missing out on a treat. Please tell her hello from me when you visit.
Your turn: What caption would you give to the poor-little-apple picture above? I can't wait to see what you all come up with!
