30 day photography challenge

day #7: fruit

can we just listen to this song by the wiggles and call it a day?!



[actually, the cartoon spanish version is even more fun!]

for today’s photography challenge, i knew that i wanted to feature colour. here’s what i came up with!

colour + trying for a unique angle…

since i pretty much eat an apple a day, this photo was the number one idea.

the runner-up:

more colour??

if i was a *real* photographer, i would run around the market for two hours with my fancy dslr and set up all kinds of wonderfully artistic and bright photos. instead, i popped over to valumart and took two snapshots!

name five fruits you would put in your fruit salad! i’d go with watermelon, honeydew, cantaloupe, grapes and blueberries. no apple -> they are not good in fruit salad!


your song o’ the day: “back in time” by pitbull. crank it!

    I kind of wonder how the markets would feel about someone running around, rearranging things to take photos.
    My 5….strawberries, blueberries, watermelon, honeydew, pineapple. Yum!

      great choice on the five, zo! i’d take that mix any day! i did not stage or move any fruit for this photo shoot!! it’s “all natural!”

    I like bananas, oranges and pineapple with pecans and coconut shavings. My mom made this all the time when I was little and I could eat the whole bowl. I’ve also seen people make this salad with little marshmallows. BTW that’s only 3 fruits but it’s my favorite fruit salad so it will have to do. PS – my favorite apple is a ripe Golden Delicious.

      three fruits that you truly enjoy is better than messing up a fruit salad by adding two more non-favourites! we’ll accept your choices! oh – my mom made a fruit salad with little marshmallows and sour cream when we were little, plus fruit (no coconut). we LOVED it! thanks for reminding me, johanna!

    Only 5? Strawberries, blackberries, blue berries (I have a berry problem), watermelon and kiwi. But, really I’d put in more than 5!

    • 1970kikiproject  On June 7, 2012 at 9:13 am

      yes, i wanted to make you pick your top 5! i can relate, stacie: i love berries, too – and melon!! your fruit mix sounds great!

  • 42kim  On June 7, 2012 at 7:47 am

    pineapple, apple, strawberry, mango and banana!
    And THANKS to you I have a song that I haven’t heard in about 6 years stuck in my head!

    • 1970kikiproject  On June 7, 2012 at 9:15 am

      yes that song IS one of the ones that is very catchy! i would let you pick out all the mango if we shared a fruit salad – haha!

    I think the photos are Great! You certainly got the colour that you were going for, Cathy! I think you have a crush on the Wiggles! šŸ˜‰ Those fruits sound Perfect for a fruit salad…I’m coming over for it, Right Now!!
