Wordless Wednesday - Bananarama


Fruity pebbles
Toronto, ON, November 2007 [Click to embiggen]


Yes, I know I'm in a bananariffic mood these days. Click here for more recent banana-ish fruitography.

Your turn: Favorite fruits. Please discuss.



One more thing: Quick media hit from the Canadian Press - Business software used on iPhone developed at SAP in Montreal. Byline LuAnn LaSalle. Here's what I said:
Analyst Carmi Levy said that SAP is positioning itself to be ready for business demand for the iPhone.

"If the iPhone never had a hope or a prayer of being adopted by enterprise, I doubt that SAP would be devoting resources to it at this point," said Levy, senior vice-president of strategic consulting for Toronto's AR Communications Inc.

"There's no question they see something," he said of SAP.
More news on this front over the next couple of days, including a possible TV interview. If you want to see me be a talking head, check back here later tomorrow.

Pomegranate, Kiwi, Pineapple, Plátanos, frozen bananas... I hate when the web makes me hungry :(

Gabriel said...

I concede the defeat, Carmi; you discovered my 'secret'... Not that I was particularly bright for having found out how to be first in the Linky thing! :-)

That was a nice post, by the way. Happy WW!

My post: "Zzzzzz"

Great photo. Your words remind me of that great song from the 60s my cousins used to sing... the Banana song? Can't quite remember it, but it was the banana name song.

stephanie said...

Beautiful photo. I love the little dent in the banana. It adds so much more interest than if the banana were "perfect."

Ok, a few of my favorite fruits: banana, strawberry, mango, pears, watermelon. At least this post is making us hungry for healthy food! ;)

My post is here if you'd like to visit. :)

Gabriel said...

As I was saying in my blog, the ice storm is bad in here! And the worse part is that I have to go to a hospital in Toronto for work tomorrow! But then I get to stay because I'm going to Ace Frehley's concert! Y'know, the guy from Kiss...

Happy WW!

Diana said...

Looks tasty! Watermelon is my favorite!

marcia said...

banana's are one of my faves to have w/ my oatmeal like banana's Foster

dKaye.com said...

i was half-expecting to see a little spider come peeking out of that crack. great picture.

happy ww!

Robin said...

Interesting choice of photo...particularly that you wouldn't choose a "perfect" fruit. I kinda like that.

My favorites? Perfectly ripe melons, fresh pineapple, strawberries and apples picked at just the right time.

Mmmmmm!

(My WW is up...amazing that at the stroke of midnight I'm still in mid double digits!)

Mariposa said...

That is good for the heart...my cardio keeps telling me to eat banana!

Robert said...

I love the colors in this one. Nice job once again.

My WW post for this week is up.

catsynth said...

Bananas are among my favorite fruits, too.

Bunny Trails said...

fresh raspberries - mmmmmm :D

susiej must be thinking, "Come Mr Tally Man, tally me bananas . . . " I sing that song a lot. no clue why.

you can see my shades here: http://bunny-trails.blogspot.com/2008/03/ww-shades.html

happy ww!!

tundratantrum said...

Janne said...

I can't choose. I like bananas...and oranges...and watermelon. Strawberries are now in season and they are sooo yummy!

Natalie said...

Favorite fruit? Apple, hands down.

The Rock Chick said...

Interesting for me because as I'm checking out WW's I am eating one of my fave snacks! A frozen banana dipped in chocolate :)

Happy WW

Yen said...

I love banana it's really good for the heart:) Happy WW!

Pamela said...

blueberries. Only one thing I like more than blueberries is MORE BLUEBERRIES!!!

(I like Mango, & pineapple, & &&&&)

Bobbie said...

I like melons. All kinds of melons. And mangoes, papayas and pineapples, and -- yes -- bananas. We grow all these in our garden here in Hawaii.

Stacey from Two Writing Teachers said...

Your photo is inspiring me to go and eat some potassium. ;)

FRANCINE said...

NICE shot! happy ww!

genny said...

Delicious banana...Happy WW.

The Mistress of the Dark said...

I like blueberries and raspberries, and most any kind of berry...and well..bananas make me think nasty thoughts.

Thaleia said...

frozen bananas covered with chocolate or chocolate covered strawberries... or chocolate dipped cherries.. or...

uh.. you'd start thinking I'm in need of some chocolate LOL

ps: great photo!

Shannon said...

Yum bananas, now that is a tropical fruit I enjoy, and there are so many different varieties to chose from here in the tropics.

mem mallary-santiago said...

nice photo. Happy WW!

Gandalf & Grayson said...

Mom says bananas are the perfect food.

Lori's Light Extemporanea said...

We were talking about SAP at the gym the other day...funny what goes around in life, huh?

I love cherries the best but only when they're in season. We pick blueberries every June and they taste just like flowers to me (good flowers, that is). The only fruit I don't like is papaya. It just tastes nasty to me.

My son and my cat are featured today. Happy Wednesday!

jennifer said...

"click to embiggen" that made me laugh. Your banana post just in time for my low carb diet. Can't we all just get along? Jen

Anna said...

Pineapple! I love most fruit.

I'm getting ready to make fruit salad with a banana, an orange, and an apple.

OldOldLady Of The Hills said...

I LOVE Bananas too...And I would have a hard time picking a favorite fruit. Right now it is The Fuji Apple....(That is what is very tasty these days...But, I LOVE Red Delicious Apples, too...! (And they are Very Very Good for you....)
Honey Do and Cantelope, when they are in season are sublime....Red, Green & Black seedless grapes, ALL quite wonderful...! Too hard to pick a favorite though!

Joan said...

Bananas have long been a favorite of mine, too, and my husband's. I'm trying to eat more fruit these days, though, so I've also been adding apples (particularly Golden Delicious), grapes, and strawberries. But I'm trying to expand my horizons, too, so I've thrown in a couple pears and nectarines, and am attempting to try others, as well.

Thanks for stopping by my blog and your words of encouragement, Carmi. I'm still reading friends' blogs, too, though I haven't been commenting much recently, either. I hope to have more time for composing both entries and comments in the next month or so, but as you mentioned - it should be complimentary, not mandatory. Thanks for the timely reminder. :)

Karen said...

That one small blemish says so much, doesn't it? Do you throw something away because it's flawed? I think not. *smile*

Hope your week is going well, Carmi!

FRIGGA said...

Yum, I love bananas!!!

Happy WW :-)

jayedee said...

i've never really thought of bananas as art, but this is a beautiful photo! happy ww!

justjessie said...

Great shot. Thanks for the sweet comment on my blog. :) And my favorite fruits are pineapple, strawberries, and grapes. Bananas and kiwi are the only ones I don't like at all!

myrtle beached whale said...

Bananas are my favorite fruit for two reasons. One, they taste great. Two, they are easy to eat and you don't have to was them. Oranges, apples, peaches, cherries, and grapes are too much trouble. Bananas are a lazy man's fruit.

Kat's Krackerbox said...

I use to love bananas but as I grew older the taste isn't the same. I will eat them occasionally but not like I use to. That's one big beautiful banana!

Jenny 865-53oh9 said...

I'm a sucker for a good mango! It takes the hand of God for me to eat a banana...great shot anyway!

Pretty!

Katarina i Kullavik said...

Your 'fruitography' of the banana is great! My favourite fruits are - apart from banana - passionfruit, mango and raspberries and strawberries (berries - is that fruit?).
Thanks for visiting my blog. /Katarina at Roses and stuff

Becca said...

Great colors. Thanks for stopping by my WW and leaving a link!

Marsha said...

Great photo Carmi... while I love bananas, my favorites are crisp, preferably a bit tart, apples (love a good Granny Smith), fresh strawberries from right here in Lousiana and rasberries. I like most fruits actually but those are my favorites. Thanks for stopping by my site!

Snowbird said...

Great shot. My favorite fruit is/are grapes. LOVE them!! Thanks for stopping by my blog and do come back.

Karen said...

I just have one word--yum!

Beverly said...

When I was growing up, the watermelon was my favorite fruit. My aunt and uncle had a field of watermelons, and after they were finished selling to the market, they let us take some. Mother and daddy put several in the trunk of the car for the trip home.

Today, I would say that my favorites are pineapple and mango.

Hey it's Amy Shipp said...

Yum~ I'm hungry :)

Mrs. F said...

My favorite fruit is the banana. My favorite thing to do with the banana? Dip it in chocolate. Especially in fat-free pudding. It feels like I am splurging, when it is really quite healthy. Yummm, I want one now!

byrningbunny said...

Love bananas! Great shot. A "talking head" with bananas!

Red Lotus Mama said...

Bananas are yummy ... especially with peanut butter! That was my daily snack when I was preggers. I also love blueberries, strawberries and mangos.

A delicious - and rarely eaten - fruit is a star fruit. They are beautiful to photograph too!

SandyCarlson said...

You caught that one at a perfect moment. Our guinea pigs love bananas. Or they love my daughter and help her out by eating what she leaves behind so SHE can leave behind a clean plate.

Beautiful work, as always, Carmi!

Edwena said...

My favorite fruit is strawberries and bananas. Thanks for the comment on my blog. It was very kind.

Bottles Barbies & Boys said...

Cut that baby up with some cheese, peanut butter & mayo and you got a yummy sandwich

FXSmom said...

I usually love 'nana's but for some reason I craved strawberries when I saw the pic. Cool shot!

the teach said...

Carmi, great bananarama! I don't like most fruits...I will eat with some pleasure, mandarin oranges. Happy WW! :D

Melissa said...

Yum, bananas! Happy WW!

Jenty said...

Beautiful photo, now you've made me want to eat one!

Patty said...

Great shot Carmi. I still haven't figured out the Mr. Linky thing. Thanks for stopping by and for the comment.

Greatfullivin said...

Nice photo...rasberries are my favorite. Little tiny pieces that all fit together to make the whole berry. Happy WW

kim said...

A fun shot! Thanks for visiting!

Loretta said...

I just bought a big bunch of bananas :) Happy WW!

Patti said...

Bananas are my favorite!! This photo is really great! I love the vibrancy of the colors! :)

soapb said...

Cool shot!

My favorites would be any kind of berry, cherries, pears, and mango.

(sorry, banana!)
;-)

Raven said...

Always fun to see something we take for granted through an artist's eye.

I love bananas too and watermelon and strawberries and nectarines and mangos and raspberries and apples sometimes, grapes. Also love cherries, though I don't get to have them often any more for some reason. Fruit is good. And pretty too. Cool.

Susan said...

Great picture, although now I've got "Bananaphone" stuck in my head.

30 Minute Mommy said...

I eat a banana every day! I love pretty much all fruit. Thanks for stopping by my blog! BTW You should have worn the red shoes at the wedding. That would have rocked!

MissMeliss said...

Carmi, you're the last person I expected to go all food-porn on us :)

Seriously, I like the fruit shots. As for me, I'm an apples-and-peanut butter kind of girl. I like bananas, too, of course.

Momma said...

Oh, nice banana!

My favorite fruit is the apple, particularly the Cortland variety. My second favorite would be the pineapple, but only if I get it straight from the farm in Hawaii!

Thanks for visiting my blog! Peace - D

Gypsy at heart said...

Hmmmm....these are the sorts of bananas I look for at the grocer's - not too ripe and pretty near perfect.

Joanne said...

Strawberries and cherries are more my passion. Great shot! Thanks for stopping by.

Happy Momma said...

Carmi- thanks for visiting our blog and welcome back anytime! Curious George and Bananas do indeed go hand.in.hand! And as for the picture "behind" the picture- being a parent, I am sure you "saw" the full picture! :D.
You have a great blog. My hubby and I will be back often.

Helena said...

After I saw that shot I tried scrolling in my past post's for my bannana shot,well that and flowers atop a table up in the mountains by a lake...but search as I may, I couln't find it. The bright yellow of the fruit makes everything sorta' peachy :>}even for a bananna.

Andrea said...

Hmmm...my favorite fruit? Well, I ADORE fruit...but grapes, mango, pineapple...those are some of my favorites. I think I could eat any fruit, any time...except maybe for kiwi! ;) My son is a HUGE fan of bananas though!

Jenn said...

beautiful lighting, thanks for sharing! I LOVE bananas, too...YUM!

MmeHaydee said...
