Skull Photograph

Christophe Dicharry sent us a photo named, "Fruit défendu" ("Forbidden Fruit).


This reminds me of stories of strangers met in dark alleys peddling forbidden "fruits". Dark and alluring are they. Fueled with curiosity and rebellion, you follow them to their liar of wares, only to be tricked and possibly faced with your own death. That which is forbidden is always more attractive than what we are familiar with. The danger and intrigue is fascinating. Though we know there is potential doom, we venture on. This is how some of the greatest discoveries are made. This is also how some of the greatest deaths are made. Sail over the edge, past the horizon. You might return befriending a whale...I mean sea monster.

Remember the bouncing dot in singalong tv? I picture a bouncing skull letting me sing along to death metal.

Looking at his outfit, he reminds me of a doctor, and I'm not sure if I want to be operated on!

It is evil masked as good. Maybe the mask we wear, but with a smoking gun, well apple. Beware it's coming. I like it, simple but effective.
