Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #130: It’s a small world

This week’s theme is Macro/micro photography, and perhaps these photos don’t qualify, but they were taken this afternoon, with my iPhone XR camera.  Once again, we went on an excursion to Uwajimaya, our excellent local Asian grocery store.  I am always fascinated by their wide assortment of exotic fruits and vegetables, and I just took close-ups.


This is called a Kiwano, and it is grown in the USA.  I know nothing else about it-maybe a reader can tell me.  In any case, they are very expensive, at $8.00 each.  But very exotic-looking.


The sign on this one says “Chi Goo, River Potato”, origin China.  It sort of resembles an onion to me.

Finally, most people would be able to identify this one, since even Starbucks has a beverage using its flavor.


It’s a dragonfruit.  I have no idea what it tastes like, but it is sure funny-looking.  But very pretty.

I am continually amazed at how good my phone camera is, and I can understand why many people have no other camera.

  1. Beautiful photos and gorgeous color. I always thought dragon fruit were native to Asia, but I discovered, somewhere, that they’re actually indigenous to Central and South America and were introduced into Asia sometime in the 19th century by the French. The ones I’ve eaten taste a bit like pears. They’re incredibly expensive, at least where I live.
