I have just returned from Sarasota, FL where I presented my lecture on Tropical Fruit Photography to the members of the Sarasota Fruit and Nut Council. Originally, this PowerPoint presentation was prepared for the California Rare Fruit Grower's annual Festival of Fruit held last August in Santa Barbara, California. I have since given this talk to the Broward Master Gardeners, Broward Rare Fruit Council, Tropical Research and Eduaction Center ,and next in line is the Miami chapter of the Rare Fruit Council . My presentation will be on Wednesday, September 10th at 7:30pm hosted at the Museum of Science in Miami, FL. This meeting is open to the public and is free! If you want to learn how I make these pictures and pick up a few tips on photography, please come out as I will reveal all of my secrets to the audience. The pictures seen below are of the very special and delicious Golden sapote and the Mombin. All photographed at Lara Farms in West Miami, FL. (Lara Farms ph. 305 253-2750).
