Life is just a bowl of.....

By tenerifejohn  
I was asked the other day what was the purpose of a photograph I posted.In order to preempt any such comment today I took this bowl of fruit because it caught my eye, the colour and how it had been randomly arranged. I slightly cropped it to take out most of the table - the rest is as it came from the camera. Having lived a life that has embraced seven decades I thought an exotic fruit as a child was a banana and today - well we can buy fruit from around the world. Oh and the technical information...
focal length 6.0 mm, reso - 2592 x 1944, Exposure 0.017s (1/60) Aperture f/3.5, ISO 64.
I hope you all have a splendid day.

A lovely shot John with the fruit looking so inviting. The bowl pattern really helps to isolate the fruit. A great composition. CLIK.

Good colour combi. Blues and oranges being opposites on the colour wheel and this makes them stand out although the cherries are q.dark.

Thanks to all. I did wonder Mavis - as she was a poet.
hey John, this is great! Looks very similar to a lovely fruit salad that my aunt Barb makes us every summer.... well done!
