    • To tell you the truth I hadn’t planned on this one happening, S.E. I was rummaging through a closet in search of a prop for something completely different when I came across a bag of machine screws… which of course led to, ‘What can I do with one of these…’. And then this happened. I guess. πŸ™‚

    • Ha! It’s funny – I was SUPER careful because I was sure I’d mess them up beyond repair.
      Well, ‘super careful’ if you don’t take into account the carefully drilled hole and the machine screw, of course.

  1. I’d say this ball and fruit are made for each other, Robert (whatever you did to make them to stay together!) Who knew that a piece of fruit and a ball would look so good together. A very original piece!

    • It was some fairly delicate maneuvering… kind of like that board game, ‘Operation’. Fortunately I didn’t have to worry about a buzzer going off our I probably would have wound up with at least two casualties.
      Thank you very much, Ms. C!

  2. Gooseberries love the closeness, mind you in this scent
    they have no choice πŸ™‚ Is this a Fetish entry SIG or New Wave
    Wickedness? πŸ™‚ Either way I like it my great friend πŸ™‚

    Have a brilliant rest of evening and a superb weekend πŸ™‚

    • To tell you the truth I’m not exactly sure what / where this one fits in, Andro! I was rummaging around (looking for some different props for an entirely different photograph), when I happened to come across a bag of machine screws. Which of course left me wondering what kind of random stuff I could fasten together! Hahaha… then… this… happened!
      Thank you very much, my friend! I hope you are having a wonderful weekend as well, sir!

      • It has been a good weekend SIG and I like your ingenuity, what a great idea it was screwing the fruits together, well the grapes anyway πŸ™‚ lmao

        I can’t wait to call in and
        see what you have added
        next πŸ™‚ Yes replying from
        my reader, how lazy of me 😦

        Andro

        • I’m very happy to hear you’ve had a good weekend, Andro!
          But, really, I think it’s just incredibly kind of you to leave a comment… doesn’t matter to me where / how it showed-up here… I very much appreciate it no matter what the platform!
          Thank you again, sir!

  3. Grapes, really? I didn’t see it at all until someone else mentioned it, but now of course I can’t see how I didn’t see it at first.

    I know you know I’m going to say this, but omGGGGGGGG, I love this. It’s like the other fruit pictures I love so much but then just one step grittier. Just brilliant.

    • It’s kind of weird… I mean… I put this together, so I had a pretty major clue these are grapes… but even so. They do look quite a bit different than you might expect, don’t they?!
      Aw, thanks, U.M! Very, very much! I don’t know… sometimes I wonder just what the heck I’m thinking sometimes.
      πŸ™‚

    • Hahaha… honestly… I don’t know if there’s much sense to be made out of this one, Martin. Sometimes I just set-up bizarre still-lifes to… well… just to set up a bizarre still life, I guess.
      πŸ™‚

    • Hahaha… Very civilized of me, eh, Patti?! Well… I don’t know about this construction, but I do have a nice mashed potato castle complete with gravy moat that I’m quite proud of…

  4. Frankengrapes. Now you just need them to be charged with 50,000 volts & they will live!!! Mwahahahaha!!!!
    I loved the Twins movie. Not even their mother could tell them apart
