Tropical fruits could drop on your head in Malaysia

Many tropical fruit trees grow randomly along the road here in Malaysia.  This, I think is either Soursop or something similar…not sure exactly.  Soursop is a great fruit for drinking as a juice and is probably loaded with vitamins.  But, I always thought how tropical fruits cost so much in many (most) non-tropical places (or the fruit is only found in a tin can…not fresh), but here, the fruit may just fall off a tree and smash you on the head!  Bad idea if it’s a coconut!  What’s criminal is that many grocery stores here will sell Malaysian tropical fruits at crazy high prices.  It’s insane because the same fruits can be found, often, on trees growing along the roadside, or, out in some abandoned land, etc.  Out-of-season fruits will be extra high-priced, for example, durian, dragon fruit, and any non-tropical imported fruits, or, “ORGANIC” fruits and vegetables.  I rarely photograph tropical fruits out in the wild, but saw this nice sample on my long walk back from the hospital, after my pain clinic appointment.  That’s an oxymoronic statement:  Pain Clinic appointment and then a 7 kilometres walk.  It’s exercise, painful, nonetheless.  The vibrant greens in the photo made the walk worth the pain.

Abstract Light Streaks #355

Title:  “Abstract Light Streaks #355”.

Series:  ABSTRACT LIGHT STREAKS.   Series Years:  2015 – 2017.   This is my largest photography series with nearly 400 photographs in the collection.  These photographs are created from nighttime lights in Penang, Malaysia.

Influence:  I am highly influenced by my favorite artist, Paul Jackson Pollock (January 28, 1912 – August 11, 1956), an Abstract Expressionism Painter, some researchers call his style Fractal Expressionism:  he was an important and influential member of the New York School of Abstract Expressionism of  the 1950s – 60s.  I take the Abstract (Fractal) Expressionism concept and translate it into abstract photographic art pieces.  Being left-handed, I’ve always been attracted to ambidextrous and mirrored visuals, and I create many ambidextrous visuals—all things equal on the left and right hand sides.

*** This is my 503rd Photo-Blog Post! I began my Photo-Blog in April 2005! I was going to mention my 500th Blog Post – but I got carried away with posting and blazed right by it: I’m hearing bells – Ding-Dong-Ding-Dong… Not that this is at all important, but I was hoping to be over 100,000 views by my 500th post, but I am a little short on views to make that goal: I’m at 99,582 views.

I just hope that my photography ‘speaks’ to people, at least in some small way.

Thank you for visiting my photo-blog: I appreciate your seeing my art photography.
