All by myself – Portugal, December 2010

While the rest of the crop have already become jams and jellies; syrups and salads, the last of the year’s pomegranates clings tenaciously to the tree.  But as my favourite lyricist Billy Bragg says, “the apple that doesn’t want to get eaten will still fall off the tree“.

This is part of a series of non-food photographs that will be published every Saturday on CookSister – all previously featured  photographs can be viewed on the Saturday Snapshots archive pages.  Photos featured in Saturday Snapshots are available to buy as high-quality greeting cards or prints in my RedBubble store and the gorgeous A3-size 2011 CookSister calendars are now available!  Something for foodies, for London-lovers, Italophiles beach lovers - even Saturday Snapshots fans! They make great gifts, for friends or for yourself :)

stunning shot Jeanne – love the drops of water on the bottom of the fruit; colors are striking!

The apple that doesn’t fall far from the tree. Lovely picture.

@Smithbites – glad you like it! There had been a huge rainstorm the night before and on the morning I took the pic everything had that lovely clean, crisp “after the rain” feeling. Wonderful.
@Rosemary – So true, considering what a keen photogrpaher my dad used to be in his youth! ;) Glad you like it!
