I I went to Woodman's today. I saw these pears, thought about how I used
to shoot photos of fruit and nude women and all sorts of stuff on
slow days at my old job at the photo studio.
So I bought these and took some photos. Tomorrow I'm going to eat my models.
It's strange to think that 20 years ago when I bought pears to eat, I never would have
wondered where they were grown, how much toxic crap had been dumped
on them to make them huge and nearly tasteless,
and if they had e-coli all over them.
Now something as simple as buying fruit is both political and possibly toxic.
I think I'm going to plant my own fruit tree in the back yard next year.
