Just a peel

In order to break up some dark images I've posted recently, I decided to post this image of a clementine peel. Clementines are basically really small sweet oranges without seeds.
I like how the literal emptiness inside the peel and the emptiness of the white background contrast with the fresh and bright look of the orange exterior.
To be honest I decided to take this photo because I was impressed that I could take the peel off in one piece. And also I've never seen a shot of an empty peel anywhere else. By the way here is another even more vibrant shot of an orange I took a while back.

I a so impressed with your fruit peeling skills! ;) But the photo is nice... it reminds me of the Cointreau ads. You know, the one where the lady is wrapped in an orane peel?

Very timely. It is (almost)Chinese New Year and I read on someone's blog that oranges are an important element of Chines New Year.

Well peeled and nicely photographed!

Thanks for the comments. I may try some more black and white to capture the texture better.
