Sunday Stills



It's that time again. I took some pictures this week just did not find the time to post them. But I'm ready for Sunday Stills. The subject this week is texture. Initially I thought, huh?? But then I remembered some pictures I took when I first got my DSLR.

DSC00095 This is a jackfruit. I have two trees in my backyard and they grow huge, up to 3 feet long.

DSC00097This is the surface of the jackfruit. It's got little spikes all over.


DSC00098This is the view from the side so you can see the little spikes.

So that's my contribution for this week. And before anyone asks, I don't eat these so really can't tell you what they taste like. They are ripe when they smell like turpentine so I'm just not attracted to them.

I'd never heard of them either! How interesting! Looks like a place where beavers would shop for new tails.

And katieleigh, thanks . . . so that's depth of field, huh?

Great shots, and the closeup is well done, When I was stationed in Hawaii we were told to stay away from them and not too pleasing to the palate..:-)

Yay! Great shot! I have them in my backyard too! The last one is a perfect spikey shot! :)
I just love jackfruit! They are real sweet. Some people may have digestion problems, But not for me! lol!

I continue to learn more and more in this week's sunday stills, never seen or heard of this fruit before! At first I thought it was a Durian fruit, which also has a erm distinct and pungeant aroma. Definately not like turpentine though! 3rd shot is great use of shallow depth of field!

Ha! I have them too in my yard and they're in bloom right now. They can get big, eh...but very tasty.

Unique! Great shots! Reminds me of our Osage Orange (aka Horse Apple)which are round, green, and bumpy.

Does anything eat them? By the looks of their size, you must have an amazing pile of turpentine smelling fruit on the ground to deal with.

Never heard of it before, but what else is new for me. Nice texture shots, looks painful to the touch.
