Idioms and Apples

Day 17: 13. Fruit

Good and bad apples.

“How do you like them apples?”.

The apple of my eye.

The apple never falls far from the tree.

When I think of apples, I think of idioms. One quick Google search will showcase the copious amount of apple-related idioms and how beneficial apples are to a healthy lifestyle. I always found idioms interesting because in the English language, and perhaps other languages, there is no direct definition in the phrase. The meaning is derived from an expression established by a culture, a group of people, or an individual. When an expression becomes common, then it gives language a sense of character and further instigates cultural history.

As for the topic of fruit, apples seemed like the ideal choice. The seed structure of the apple and being the flowering result of a plant, establishes it as a fruit rather than a vegetable. In the photo, it might appear that I used a massive amount of photo shop to halve an apple, but I actually cut it in half to arrange this clever setup. After tilting it over slightly and placing the apple slices, my camera angle did all of the work.
