Travel Theme: Fruit

I love to take pictures of food when I'm travelling so I shouldn't have been surprised by all the photos of fruit that I've collected. There's something very photogenic about a ripe, red strawberry or a fresh, fragrant lemon.



Strawberries in Tournus, France

Lemons on Isola Bella, Italy


Some varieties of fruit are destined for greater things, like French grapes that are made into wine.

A plum can be the simple ending to a delicious seafood dinner in Venice.



Dessert on the Island of Burano, Venice


And berries are the perfect accompaniment to a silky panacotta or a sweet French crepe.

Fruit slices make a colourful garnish for a beverage on a hot summer day on the French Riviera.

And sometimes a serving of fruit is almost too beautiful to eat.

Fruit can also be used to enhance your decor.

And sometimes fruit gets rather whimsical.

But wherever you travel in Europe in the summer months you're sure to find an abundance of fresh, seasonal fruit.
