These images are quite stunning by Luke MacGregor, it’s as if the moon was staging its own special display while the world’s athletes were putting on a show at the Olympic Stadium yesterday. Luke took these dusky gold shots of the moon as it rose behind the Tower Bridge’s Olympic banner, briefly forming a unique Sixth Ring on the London skyline.

A Wishing Apple?

Gala Apples MilnersBlog 3They may not be pure Red Apple photographs, like the ones in Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, but these Gala Apples I think are the most beautiful apples to photography, but if you wanted to turn it into a Poisonous Apple, here’s the Evil Queen’s recipe for doing it:

Dip the apple in the brew. Let the Sleeping Death seep through. Look! On the skin! The symbol of what lies within. Now, turn red, to tempt Snow White, to make her hunger for a bite. [offering the apple to the raven] Have a bite? [the raven flaps wildly, trying to escape] It’s not for you, it’s for Snow White. When she breaks the tender peel, to taste the apple in my hand, her breath will still, her blood congeal, then I’ll be fairest in the land!

Queen: And since you’ve been so good to poor old Granny, I’ll share a secret with you. This is no ordinary apple. It’s a magic wishing apple.
Snow White: A wishing apple?
Queen: Yes. One bite, and all your dreams will come true.
Snow White: Really?
Queen: Yes, girlie. Now, make a wish, and take a bite.
