  In honor of Foodie Friday, I'm posting these photos I love  by photographer Florent Tanet. The concept of the fruit as still life has been around for hundreds of years. It's as classic as it gets, and yet this version is so delightful. Proof that there are no boring subjects, only boring photographs.
