Day 334—My Darlin’ Clementine

Today’s challenge is “The End.” My response to the “Sign” challenge several days ago would have been perfect for this challenge but I didn’t think it was fair to use that sign again. As I contemplated what I might photograph to represent “the end,” I savored a sweet Clementine mandarin orange, tossing the skin onto a plate. Since they’re tiny, I’d taken two out of the fridge. I stared at the plate and realized that I was looking at the stem end of the fruit, one interpretation of “the end,” and the actual demise of the other fruit, (a grim and forbidding interpretation of “the end”) represented by the strewn pieces of peel. Perfect.
