there is essentially no other reason for this post, other than i was inspired by these images and found myself collecting them on pinterest like some kind of maniacal fruit hoarder. so, there you have it. i’m giving you fruit today but hopefully, you’ll see it as something a little more — some colorful (even healthy!) inspiration. it’s almost summer and my favorite fruits are popping up all over the farmer’s markets and when it’s hot, fruit is all i i ever really crave (with the exception, of course, of margaritas, chips & salsa). i often find food photography just so darn pretty, but we rarely get to share it here, so today, i’ve indulged my inner foodie and gone loopy for fruit. in addition to these images (links just at bottom), you find yourself in need of more eye candy, some of my longtime personal favorite food styling & photography can be found at cannelle et vanille, herriott grace, luisa brimble and sweet paul — you’ll discover some real feasts for the eyes (and bellies) over there.
