Pomegranates & friends – Layers

navel pomA friend was in from out of town. We used to be roommates – a year or so spent as Plateau rats in one of those gorgeous, reasonable-rent Montreal apartments with a view of the mountain, just before I became a mom or really had a career to speak of – so long ago now, those young and loose bohemian times.

Such a treat, the thick rind, the weird layers of membrane holding the tasty seeds – such a unique fruit sensation.
Pleasures, simple pleasures, friends and fruit.

      1. The pomegranate has so much historical and symbolic significance generally and for me personally, so I guess that’s where my particular fascination stems from. It’s a fascinating fruit indeed…

  1. I love this! The complexity and juciness of friendship is so well illustrated by your photos! Pockets of sweet rubies to savor; a feast for the eyes and taste buds and yet one has to spend time and carefully mine them out of their nooks and cranies. Great piece!
