Click April 2008 Photo Entry- Au Naturel
Last month I saw a few links to this contest and loved checking out the pictures. When I saw this months theme, "au naturel", I knew just the picture. The original link to this photo is here.
I live in Arizona and have several citrus trees. When I went to grab a few oranges one morning in January, I reached in for a nice, juicy looking one, and was shocked to find this orange. It was split in half with two colors- one side looking like a traditional orange, and the other more the color of a grapefruit (one side also tasted better than the other!) No joke. I have not touched up or modified the color of this orange at all.
This strange, unique orange is "au naturel" and I've never seen one like it, ever. It's just a reminder to me of how beautiful and unpredictable nature is.
