Strange Kiwano Fruit

Saw this @ safeway on tues. I asked the greens person about it, and she told me to take it home for free, try it and let her know how I liked it. I thought that was awesome, cuz I think it was marked at $5 which is a bit much for a strange fruit. She also retorted "alien brains" when I asked about the flesh; so yeah, definitely intriguing!

My impression of the taste is kiwi/lime,  it is kinda slimy and the seeds are soft so it goes down easy. I would pay for one. Also a lovely photographic subject!

Black n White n Low Clarity

Going to start a b & w photo composition class, and thought I'd end 2015 with photo intended to be about the spirit rather than the form.
Lensbaby sweet 35 gave me the blurred edges I love, and I turned down clarity to get the dream like feeling in the center.I like how the light brings out the little birds and the massive overarching Oak tree.  Happy New Year!

Green Orchid Flower Stalk

A decent photo of my green orchid flower. I now realize I should've turned off the ceiling fan to get a crisp image. And I did use the speedlight. Need practice.
