Obscene fruitography?


Bananarama
London, ON, March 2007 [Click to enlarge]

Forgive my indulgence: I'd like to revisit the theme of fruitography (if you want a good laugh, Google it. Then go see where it all began.) That's where I shoot closeup pictures of fruits and/or vegetables (no, let's not get started on vegography; one invented word for now is enough.) There's no real reason for this obsession beyond my desire to look at ordinary things in extraordinary ways.

I believe that bananas sit atop the fruit pyramid. There's something essentially perfect about these self-contained, nutrient-packed creations. The out-there color is an added bonus.

So I thought I'd observe my lunchtime dessert closeup before I wolfed it down.

Your turn: My next fruit of opportunity should be a...?

The orange should be your next subject. I'm just biased because it's my favorite.

It's summer. Summer fruit rocks! Watermelon might look cool.

Moi beat me to it. Mangoes! I have a tree in my yard. If i knew they would travel well, I'd send you some, but, wait, I haven't seen any yet.

A wonderful fruit, full of everything that you need for what ails you.

After seeing the banana, I instantly thought of a cherry. And I'm not going to explain why either.
