An Observation

Next to tulips, cherry blossoms, Greenock, my next-door neighbor’s dying tree and dogs (and I am sure there are many others I have overlooked), pears rank right up there in most photographed subjects. I like their shape, their colors, their possibilities. Based on Wednesday’s post, I started thinking about other pear pictures taken over the last couple of years. It was an interesting exercise, as I can see certain patterns and hopefully, growth. So here are four images from 2012 to 2015 of . . . pears.

Images taken with Nikon D50, iPhone 4s and iPhone 5s

  1. Ah, pairs! Two when there are three. How sad the pear that stands alone, lost in the shadows of the lovers, or sisters, or brothers. How sad and contemplative your pairs…

    • Thank you so much! The response to this series has been quite interesting-clearly pears strike a very responsive chord with lots of people. I like your take on this- a lot. Thank you for visiting-

  2. Lovely series of compositions. Effective use of colour, texture & tone. 🙂

    Another interesting observation is that in three of the shots the pears appear to be in a Ménage à trois . 😀
