January 30 - Oranges (#PhotoBlog365)

by Björn Roose January. 30, 2019 414 views

It's passed on! This orange is no more! It has ceased to be! It's expired and gone to meet its maker! It's a stiff! Bereft of life, it rests in peace! If I hadn't glued it to the table it would be pushing up the daisies! Its metabolic processes are now history! It's off the twig! It's kicked the bucket, it's shuffled off its mortal coil, run down the curtain and joined the bleedin' choir invisible!! THIS IS AN EX-ORANGE!! (Monty Python's original text/sketch is of course about something blue ... :-) )

You are funny! Great narrative. Ok now I need some explanation from you....are these blood oranges or are they the dark color because they are "gone"? Really like the composition and the set up...might be one of those things I might replicate in the future.

I really thought I was following you before, apparently not...no wonder I hadn't seen some of your posts smile

Got a good chuckle from this one, but it's a great shot! What did you use for the lighting?

A small led spot, pointed towards the glass and over the dried oranges.

i started laughing before i read thru the whole first line.. it's truly my fave skit.. 

[oddly enough, me & the fella just got home, he said "anybody call?" i looked at the phone "just Spam" then he starts in with "eggs & spam, and beans & spam and spam, spam spam" in the worst british old woman voice ya ever heard.. ]

smile I've noticed there's quite a lot of people around here that are pretty familiar with Monty Python. Good thing too, it's just great humour smile And the dead parrot sketch is really fantastic.

I see the llunar eclipse, the shadow on the surface of the glass and the dark red slices remind of the „blood moon“

Thanks for noticing, Lee blush The moon idea came to my mind when I did the post processing. I only wondered if anyone would have the same idea about this picture. You did ! smile
