Fruity Tongues


February 2, 2005

Here's a dash of colour to make me forget that we've yet to receive the worst of winter. I never realized that sliced strawberries could look like tongues, which is all I see now. Originally I was going to zoom in much closer to make this more of an abstract macro but I thought this arrangement worked better.

And for whoever's keeping note, Happy Groundhog Day.

Yeah, uh.. what Miles said. Very Georgia O'keefe.

The colour is refreshing, juicy and tantalizing. Just like the fruit. I really can't see anything but a sliced stawberry.

Nothing is better than fresh strawberries in the dead of winter.

Nice. Maybe an illustration for the Kiss song: Hey baby, dead baby devil he embracin' you
With a long forked-tongue-kiss
Suckin' all the life from you

Looks more like cut-away lips to me? Tongues, though, sure.

What Andrew said (including what Miles said).

Reads warm, hope of spring, might have cut down on the white space.

first impression i got was of a mouth so i guess it's close to the tongue. cool shot and i like your framing.

So it seems I'm mostly in the minority in thinking they look like tongues. My wife thought they looked like teeth (or, cross-sections of teeth). Either way I'm happy to see all the other interpretations of what they might be. :)

I didn't know that flowers had pedals - is that how that get from one place to another? ;)
The bottom one looks like a vertical half set of lips. (Top one looks like a pouty set of lips, now that I've said that). Nice colour.

HEHE I think they look like lips to but maybe it is just my imagination... I love the color of the strawberrys! They Taste good to hehe:)

Something about these delicious strawberries makes me think of my I e-mailed it to him. Thanks!

Kind of reminds me of a set of very red lips on the face of a very pale woman. (white background)

(I see tongues too, but they are really icky looking tongues. Almost leprous.
X-P )

Before I read the title I said to myself ... tongues! I think is speaks for itself.

Ah, red. So lovely, indeed! I see fish mouths, red salmon specifically, not tongues. Flowers, too.

Innovative vision. It looks like two sister volcanoes ready to squirt out. Strong lines of energy. Nice work.
