Lilly : Oh, look, let’s get some of those lovely apples, Ronnie !
Ronnie : Remember we have these I found under a tree.
Lilly : But you cannot remember what tree it was, can you ? . . and health-care is expensive right now.

Ronnie, do you still have trees that are not conform to the European bureaucrats rules? What a shame!
23 Aug 2009 11:20am
I'm with Lilly on this one :) looks like your apples have been lying underneath the tree for quite some time, they don't look as happy and bright as Lilly's! Wonderful composition ... excellent job!
23 Aug 2009 1:16pm
You don't even want to get me started on healthcare. Ours is ridiculous. I love the apples in the bag in the cart compared to the apples at the store. It says it all!! Love it!! Great shot. Perfect. : )
23 Aug 2009 2:09pm
Your posts always brings a smile to our faces...but in addition to the humor, there are great photos as well. Love the colour in this one.
23 Aug 2009 2:34pm
Not sure if these are edible, Ronnie, but they certainly are authentic. :-)
23 Aug 2009 3:08pm
(from Ronnie) These are the toxic fruits of the Horse Chestnut tree and certainly not ‘apples’. Because of the virus and moth problems afflicting our chestnut trees over the last few years, the fruits and leaves discolor and fall early.
Beware of people who bring their own groceries! best...jerry

they some strange looking apples. more then likely to give you an upset tummy. nice shot
23 Aug 2009 7:15pm
We had a Chestnut tree in our yard growing up and it those always stained our driveway and cars...and leave a bruise when they fall on your head. :) Great composition of this shot!
Beautiful shot. Lovely story. I like it a lot
23 Aug 2009 9:27pm
Also I think Lily you should definitely get some apple, they look delicious. I love apples :)
23 Aug 2009 9:28pm
Excellent work! The colour and clarity is superb. Love the story... I remember using those at elementary school (long, long time ago) in art classes - making creatures out of the chestnuts :))
23 Aug 2009 11:21pm
(from Ronnie) Yes, many things like this carry memories . . we call them "Conkers' in the UK and it would not surprise me if they are banned in schools today as being poisonous and dangerous. The disease afflicting the Horse Chestnut trees is now so widespread that these may become little more than a memory before long.
the apples look better to eat than those horse chestnuts (never seen them before).....an apple a day keeps the doctor away (you either can't afford the doctor or can't stand the waiting list!!)....
23 Aug 2009 11:51pm
I'm with Lilly! What the heck are those things in the bag, Ronnie? Nice composition.
24 Aug 2009 2:02am
(from Ronnie) ha ha . . you can look back a day and get the lowdown on those things !
what a great contrast,and as always so witty and hilarious!:)

I'm with Lilly. The apples in the store look delicious. And you shouldn't eat those horse chestnuts Ronny.
24 Aug 2009 6:17am
I'm truly sorry that I misspelled your name Ronnie. Sometimes the fingers are faster than the brain...
24 Aug 2009 6:21am
(from Ronnie) I think that's a rather sweet way of spelling my name now you mention . . but your Comments are always so welcome whatever the spolling !
I hope they didm't eat these :) Ronny needs lenses :))
24 Aug 2009 6:28am
Desipte the fact that I'm nearly 28, I still have the urge to go collecting conkers whenever autumn comes around! A lovely combination of images!
24 Aug 2009 9:40am
(from Ronnie) hee hee . . providing the Chestnut Trees survive the virus, I reckon you should still have a few years of conker-collecting left in you, Dave !
We're all of 2 kinds ! Watcha :) Great vantage point*
24 Aug 2009 10:03am
Lol! Thanks for the explanatory photo of the chestnut fruits. And the real apples look good enough to eat (Ummm...) :) BTW - love your response to Pernilla above - it's prefect!
24 Aug 2009 12:03pm
LOVE it ! BRAVO !!!
24 Aug 2009 1:08pm
well done again my friends !
24 Aug 2009 1:45pm
What is the secret to your creativity. Each time I come here I'm trying to figure out if it is the picture I am drawn to or just the mystery of how you two think of this stuff. I know I mention this all of the time to you.
Regardless, this is once again a great image. I have to say I would eat the apples as well.
24 Aug 2009 3:04pm
@Tammy-Cricket: Thank you. The process is often a secret kept from us, too ! We do sometimes wonder how our initial thoughts work their way into the completed images here.
Looks like an even trade to me!
24 Aug 2009 3:13pm
Mmm, those not-apples look very tasty...have you ever made a not-apple cake?
24 Aug 2009 3:15pm
Always imaginative and wonderful to visit your site!
24 Aug 2009 5:09pm
excellent storytelling, great work
24 Aug 2009 7:03pm
Live dangerously, Ronnie. Go with yours, they're a bargain.
24 Aug 2009 7:40pm
cela donne faim
24 Aug 2009 9:14pm
@Veronelle: Appréciez !
I had a smile tonight
24 Aug 2009 9:26pm
Such a wonderful and appealing image. This sure is the right food to eat, a great reminder. Really like the view point from this shot, great capture!
24 Aug 2009 11:57pm
You didn't do any "spit-shining" to those apples, did you? Great perspective that you have chosen to capture the long display of fruits. The price tags really help identify the location.
25 Aug 2009 1:50am
@Steven: ha ha . . no spot-shining . . all natural produce !
25 Aug 2009 3:31am
Love the colour and crisp look of those shiny apples!
25 Aug 2009 5:24am
Nice shot! And I love your "Not Apples" too. Like the color and composition here. It's not an easy image to get right. Well done.
25 Aug 2009 6:45am
I'm impressed with your sharp pictures
25 Aug 2009 7:18am
@M@ndy: Thank you, M@ndy : great to have you on board !
I prefer apples, lol.
25 Aug 2009 8:26am
Con el hambre que tengo, madre mia!!! Cuantas tan buenas texturas.
25 Aug 2009 9:32am
@Alex: Gracias. ¡Ayuda ustedes mismos, paga en la comprobación!
Another great job. Seamlessly combined. Too bad we can't eat the fruit on the right, as it is free.
25 Aug 2009 10:30am
You know too many of those little green gems can make one a little sore...... The colors of the store apples are deep and lucious!
25 Aug 2009 10:42am
I prefer to keep with the apples too. Especially after reading your comment about the other fruit.
25 Aug 2009 11:17am
Hmmm...those little green things with the bumps are indeed questionable! What is it they say about 'an apple a day'? Best stick with what you know.
25 Aug 2009 7:07pm
I like how you have us peering into the bag as if we are there with you. I'm wondering now how many days have you been carrying those toxic chestnuts around?
Actually we never know these days what is safe even if it is on the store shelves.
Very interesting news about the moth and virus issues. I did notice the price of those apples are about ten cents cheaper than our stores.
26 Aug 2009 3:45am
i think i'll pass!
28 Aug 2009 8:22am
This is a superb shot. It took me a while to see evidence of the merge, especially as it's such a great p.o.v.
28 Aug 2009 6:46pm
So well put together. I can't believe your skills when I look at this!
