Score, I love being the first one here, LOL
WOW, your camera really rocks the close up. Get this, I’ve never bought a pomegranate…….way 😀 I had a girlfriend in school who loved them and I never got the craze. She used to just eat the seed gel and spit the seed…ya lovely. I would have never guessed if you hadn’t said. This is a silly question but, do you peel it?
YAY you’re the first! I was thinking about you earlier this evening 🙂
I was at a friend’s house with some other women the other night and she taught us how to get inside. You score it kind of like an orange and peel the skin back.
You would have loved how we “ate” them … added to our glasses of wine!!
No kidding? Sounds like the meal of champions, HA. Would that be red or white? I’m afraid I’ve had a wine overload on Saturday at my SIL’s 50th Birthday. Maybe 4 glasses or so, but they were a tad big. Those headaches are a killer 😀 As I’ve said before, “I’m never doing that again” LOL
We grow loads of poms on the farm and currently are scoffing 3 every night. As for how to peel them, check out my post on just that subject 🙂
Uncle Spike! -Thanks for the links to your pomegranate posts. I can’t believe the weight those bushes can hold! So my friend had the first part right, but I can see how the water would make the process so much easier!
And Boomdee, when we meet for that big ‘ol blogging party in the middle of the continent, I’ll be drinking red! and yes … lots and lots of water is needed to hold off those dehydration headaches! Hopefully you are recovered by now 🙂
That is super, duper cool! Well done, LB.
Thank you! I am SO glad you think so … I was sure folks would think I was a bit nutty!! I just thought those poms were beautiful!
Artists see wonder in things that others might overlook. Nutty…never!!!
Those are three stunning photos – and I’m with Boomdee ….. they are rare and expensive here and I’ve never had the pleasure…. must add to my bucket list 🙂
If you feel comfortable doing so, remind me where you are (at least the continent 🙂 ) in the great wide world. I haven’t had a fresh pomegranate in a long while, but I’ve enjoyed them on and off through the years. For some reason, they were being sold at our local grocery store recently and a friend shared one with me. Lucky me!
I can’t even claim a continent! Living here in a small country at the bottom of the world, 3000km from our nearest neighbour, Australia.
I’m a New Zealander or, if you prefer, a Kiwi 🙂
We proudly remain nuclear free, despite our right wing governments attempts to change that – and we still proclaim our clean, green image despite Monsanto and co’s inroads to destroy that and their attempts to bring us up to speed with the rest of the world ……Less than 5 million inhabitants, but 15 million sheep…. few pomegranates make it through to us and I don’t think anybody actually grows them commercially ……. 🙂
Love reading about New Zealand’s efforts to stay green (and your politics 🙂 ). And more sheep than people!
Someday I’ll get there!!
Cool, I’ll be here to welcome you 🙂
Love poms, we eat them every night this time of year… alas just 35 remain in our store 🙂 I added a couple of links above for your reader regarding poms too.
I shared the links with the women I was enjoying wine and pomegranates with the other night. So you are growing those bushes in Turkey? Is that right? Is it a climate thing? (forgive me if I read the post too quickly and you aren’t in Turkey … trying to get too much done before heading off to work this morning … but pomegranates do come first!).
Yes, I farm here in Turkey…
Lovely, lovely pictures…awesome color!
Thanks so much … truly! The colors caught my eye, too!! By the way, I just started following your blog … but to be honest, I thought I already was! Duh … no wonder I never saw your posts 🙂
Thanks so much for the follow. Better late than never! 🙂
Really colorful shots LB. Did you get the camera back ? I thought I heard something begging to be photographed from here but I just couldn’t figure out what it was, LOL. Have a wonderful day 😀
Thanks Joe … my friend who gave me the pomegranate now wants photos of the inside … these photos were taken with the camera before I took it in, and the insides will have to be taken once the camera is home (hopefully Friday!)
Er, you crazy? Then call me crazy too, LB. I am considering this color for my new counter tops for the cupboards we are making for our new kitchen on the Mountain.
Such a gorgeous color, and you have captured the essence of Poms perfectly!
What a gorgeous color for the cupboards!! I’ll look forward to seeing them!
As I told Joe in the previous comment, the friend who gave me the pom has asked me to photography the inside … a challenge for when I get the camera back!
Absolutely love the close up with the blossom end!
Me too, Liz! Thanks for sharing this Pomegrante treat!
Love the texture you got on that last one!
Fun, huh? Thanks!
lol…crazy, no, artistic eye, yes!!! these photos are awesome…love them and pomegranates too, even better with wine! What are you using to take photos with?
These were the last photos I took before turning the camera into the shop. Hopefully I’ll have it back by Friday!!
Love these especially the first photo!
Thanks! That’s my favorite, too 🙂
Fantastic colour 🙂
Pretty awesome, right? I was glad my friend let me take it home with me 🙂
They taste good too
loved the abstractness 🙂
You get it! you should see the B&W I took of it … with the long shadow of the pomegranate. It wasn’t good enough to post but it made me chuckle
I just love when fruit begs☺
Haha!! Hope you are well, Laurie
Not crazy at all! Lovely!
Thanks so much, Robyn … as a photographer, I know you get it 🙂
amazingly so……….I will never have thought of it…..love love it!!!
