STILL LIFE 19 – OVERRIPE BANANAS (MONO + COLOUR)

Overripe bananas; 10 June 2014.

I looked up and there on top of the fridge were these reclining yellow bodies, unsightly in their heavy black blotching.

Tripod-mounted D800 with 105mm Nikkor; 100 ISO; Silver Efex Pro 2, starting at the Film Noir 1 preset; selective restoration of colour.

About Adrian Lewis
Photographer working in monochrome, colour and combinations of the two - with a great liking for all sorts of images, including Minimalism, landscapes, abstracts, soft colour, people, movement, nature - I like to be adventurous in my photography, trying new ideas and working in many genres. And I'm fond of Full English Breakfasts and Duvel golden ale, though not necessarily together.

      Yes, you must be smoking something – and I’d love to be smoking it with you (or maybe with a cigarette holder) and you could have a shot or two of Duvel, just to achieve maximum oomph, rather like lighting the afterburner, only more so …. who needs NASA? …

      I’m well, and really mellowing into this retirement thing. ATP xxx

    Ooh – one can really see and feel the soft velvety inky-dark areas in this overripe banana! They do go off quickly in this weather but taste lovely and sweet.

        Probably best not to post them; with all the strict rules and regs regarding postal items these days they might get refused as toxic waste. Besides, I found my own banana surprise this week. Whilst having a good clear out of old stuff and rubbish, I found a liquified banana inside a bag (fortunately) inside a bag I used to use for work 🙂
