Pear Kisses

Warren, Connecticut. Went up to Averill Farm to buy apples, pears, and quinces for our apple pie baking marathon this weekend. Figured I'd get them now so I could photograph them before they get "pied." Got them all washed and lined up regiment style for their group picture.


These bosc pears are maybe the most photographed and painted fruit on earth and I can see why, very photogenic they are. Tomorrow I'll work on shots of quinces and the various types of apple I got: we like our pies filled with a variety of apples, some pears, and a small amount of quince for bite. This "aggregate" makes for a more interesting and varied texture and taste.
