30 Days of Photographs IV: Biblical

Day 16 of Bob. It's almost over now. Only a few more years to go...

Link up, visit, comment, repeat.


Day 16: Biblical

So, I had this apple. It was green and pretty and looked really delicious, but one of my cats, Yoda, told me I wasn't supposed to eat it. It wasn't meant for me. So I didn't eat it, and I didn't think about it. I left it alone.

But then my other cat, Darth Vader, made an appearance. One moment I was happily watching tv, and the next, he was there. His soft white paw nudged the apple closer. Look at it, he said, isn't it beautiful? Don't you want to take a bite out of it? An apple like this will be a real eye-opener, you know. Your world will never be the same again. And he looked at me with his beautiful blue eyes, and he held the apple out to me, whispered promises of knowledge of good and evil.

I took a bite out of it, and I knew. It was all so clear to me. It all made perfect sense.

And suddenly, I was really glad Biblical came after NSFW.

  4. Sheesh. Now Evil Twin is licking the screen. That photo is well worth the fruits of your labor. Ha! Dufus's comment didn't cut it this morning.


    Got cheese with that apple? No, not cutting that either.

  7. Love the red background. It screams, "Don't eat the apple!" But you did and grew wiser because of it.

  8. If a cat named Darth Vader rolled a beautiful green apple over to me, I would so take a bite. Who wouldn't?

    Nice story. You weren't trying to make up for the fact that you took a photo of an apple, were you?

    Okay, seriously, I like this photo a lot. It's simple, and I'm glad you choose a green apple and shot it on a red background. That makes it visually arresting.

  11. Brilliant. Your cats are your duelling consciences. Why am I'm not surprised you went over to the dark side?

    Love the green and red contrast :)

  12. Next time you visit Mike, leave the apples alone. See where it got you? You sinned and made up this list of prompts!

    This ain't no Garden of Eden that I live in, trust me.

    By the way, Paula, I have a lot of trouble commenting on your blog. No idea why. But I try every day. Just wanted you to know.

  19. And here all this time I thought you were a plum girl!

  20. Don't eat the damn apple! Hasn't history taught you anything? Now women have to have periods and bear children. Dang, Ziva!

  21. Oh Linda, I am. But sometimes a girl just needs to sin.

    ReplyDelete
  22. It sure is. Green on red's pretty striking, too.

  26. I hear you, Shawn. I've asked M to write me a program that will visit all of the blogs, and leave a comment from me saying, "Great job, that's a wonderful take on the theme!"
