Brenda Photo Challenge - Macro Fruit

I'll be putting a post up later today at my usual time but I wanted to do a separate one for the Brenda Photo Challenge
This time the theme was macro fruit. I thought this was going to be a cinch. I like fruit, I sometimes even buy fruit and bring it home with the intentions of eating more healthy. Oh that reminds me, I think I need to clean out that bottom drawer in my refrigerator. I did have some bananas but do you think I could remember to take a picture of them before I ate them. No, of course not. Well why not just take the camera to work with me. I can always find a slow time in the day to take a few pictures of our produce department. However, since I wasn't actually on an official break when I did that, I thought it was best to grab a couple of pieces of fruit and take them back to my little bakery corner of the store.
This one looked pretty peachy to me.

 Now I have to reveal the fact that I don't remember what this one is called. Never even tried one but I like the way it looks.

 Head on over and check out the rest of the entries in the Brenda Photo Challenge and please come back later for my second post of the day. Duke misses you

Good morning, Ann!

I love the peach ~ the soft lighting really captures the fuzzy feel. Like how it is turned on its side too.

Not sure what the other piece of fruit is either but you sure got a cool shot of it!

Nice visiting! ldh

Brenda said...

Those fit the fruit prompt for our challenge in spades! I can even smell that peach from here. great shots!!

Daniela said...

Yummy, those are fantastic. I think the bottom one is a pomegranate? Although you usually can't get them until fall, so it might not be it..hhmm

digiVickie said...

Pomegranate ... filled with ruby red juicy seeds, yummy :)

The peach reminds me, I should take more pictures of our local fresh peaches this year!


Jeanette said...

Yep..looks like a pomegranate to me too! Yum!! I love those yet I NEVER buy them. Too much hassel to eat, I guess! Nice pictures.

Donna said...

Pomegranate!!!Hahaha...Hubby and I studdered around here for at LEAST 10 minutes trying to remember the word!!Hahaaa...Great shot!!
Great Peach too!!
Happy Saturday Girl!!

A pomegranate is so apt for the spring equinox Ann - Persephone ate 6 pomegrante seeds in the underworld, so had to spend 6 months there and 6 months on the earth. Spring is when she comes back here. Great photos. xx

Great job Ann! Nice angle and shots!

Haven't tasted pomegranates yet. :)

Grace said...

Terrific shots, and yes, pomegranate. Love them, pain in arse to peel but so much fun to eat.

Cinnamon-Girl said...

Great shots! The insides of the pomegranate would be a good picture too - little red seeds that look like jewels.

Wonderful fruity pictures! Have a great weekend!

DK Miller said...

Nice shots and I agree that I think the bottom one is a pomegranate.

Buggys said...

I think everyone is right and the bottom one is a pomegranate. Nice pictures though.

Jeanne said...

Love the pomegranate. I even thought of buying one so I could cut it open and get a shot cause they look really cool inside. But didn't want to waste it if I didn't like it so.... Good shots!

Bossy Betty said...

OH! You should cut that pomegranate open and get some shots! (Wear really old clothes when you do.)

Great shots!

Ann said...

Duni said...

Oooh, I love the 'fruity' shots! I think the second one is a pomegrenate.

p.s. I tend to buy a bunch of bananas, then forget about them until they're almost black. oops.

Audrey said...

Now I have a craving for peach pie! :)
Awesome photo's! I took some a Canada Geese on the creek beside our yard, will try to remember to post them on Monday.

Donna said...

Oh, I really like both of those! I'm ready to dig in and eat both of them!

Nita Jo said...

Great shots! The peach looks ready for eating... and I love pomegranates! I laughed reading about your bottom fridge drawer... sounds so much like me. I always have such good intentions of eating healthier. Oh, and I ate my bananas too! Lol!

Carolyn Ford said...

That peach is just perfect for a wonderful snack RIGHT NOW! Beautiful...

BeadedTail said...

Great fruity shots! Makes me want to eat healthy too!

Wonderful fruit shots! Pomegrante...I wonder where it's shipped from?

Dorothy said...

Duni I do that with the bananas and other fruits all the time.

Audrey peach pie does sound good. Can't wait to see the pics of the geese

Donna thank you very much

Nita Jo yes I'm full of good

Carolyn yes it would make a good snack, I guess I should have brought some home

beaded tail I need to start working on the healthy eating but I always grab for the junk instead
