I place the glistening grapefruit slices in an attractive bowl (I have a red glass Goodwill find that sets them off well), admire them for a few moments, and then gorge on their tangy, thirst-quenching goodness, mouthful after mouthful after mouthful. It is the consummate grapefruit consumption experience bar none, even Salty Dogs, and they're pretty good.
I don't have any pictures to show you of this part, but last night as I was admiring the beauty of the sections, I held one up to the kitchen light and was completely enthralled by the subtle pink-gold tint of the fruit, and the depth of field visible in the translucence of the juice-filled vesicles.
I'm not sure that any of the photos I took (and I took MANY) reproduce exactly what I had seen in the kitchen, but with the help of Ian and my headlamp, I think I got some interesting shots regardless. Below are some of them. Enjoy!
Grapefruit, more or less normal color.
Super close-up of the vesicles, which have been described as kind of fluid-filled hairs.
More vesicles writ large.
My headlamp has a red light option.
I spent quite a bit of time playing with the camera settings after that, and have included three shots from settings play. In this one, my bioluminescent grapefruit heats up.
WHITE HOT GLOW!
AND . . . burned out. Time to eat!
