Sisterhood Stories – An apple love affair

The Apple

So this is the fruit that made us all human.
So this is the fruit we reached for and got.
So this is the fruit that ripens in autumn.

I envy your eye.
Knowing roundness,
you put an apple in a bowl,
curve into curve
like lovers.

~Bruce Guernsey

There’s just something about apples.  The simple rounded shape, the variation of colors, the way light hits it, it’s just perfect in every way.  I love that excerpt from this poem that talks about Paul Cézanne.  He knew.  He fell in love with them too.  I could photograph apples all the time, and each photo would be different.  
Apple season comes with my favorite time of the year, autumn.  Picking apples is a time I take for myself, walking alone in the orchard, in the comfortable September sunlight.  Thinking of all the photos I’m going to take and all the desserts I’m going to bake.  Every year, I hear the calling and I need to go.  Resistance is futile, I give in, and I’m happy to do so.

    Love all these photos, they are all so different and wonderful. Everyone has their own love whether that be apples, kites, cups, dogs, people or horses 😉

    Gorgeous. I love this time of year too. We planted apple trees about 3 years ago and they are just starting to produce properly – we have a great harvest this year. I dont think anything compares to picking an apple from your own tree and biting into it there and then. Reading your blog I can smell the apples, feel the autumn air and hear the leaves rustle and crackle underfoot. Love it.

    I love apples too – but I often forget that. Thank you for reminding me how beautiful the ordinary can be.
