Project 365: Day 66 – Pineapple in Crystal

by matt on April 26, 2010

Pineapple in CrystalPineapple.  Ananas comosus.  Some things you may not know about the pineapple:

  1. the natural pollinator of the pineapple is the hummingbird
  2. pineapple contains a proteolytic enzyme bromelain, which breaks down protein which is why pineapple juice can be used as a marinade and meat tenderizer
  3. SE Asia is the worlds largest producer of pineapple with Thailand growing 1.9 million tons
  4. the pineapple is native to Brazil and Paraguay

Tonight I took a few shots of an uncut pineapple but I didn’t like the way that they came out so I put some cut pineapple in this crystal glass and topped it with the top of a pineapple.  Camera settings are below.
