238/365 Repeating patterns

Banana seems to be one of those flavors that always overwhelms whatever it's paired with.

Do you agree?

For that reason, it's not my favorite fruit. I usually only reach for a banana if I'm starving on a deserted island or it sneaks into my smoothie.

Nevertheless, they are interesting and fun photographic subjects. For one, by growing in bunches, bananas give you an automatic repeating pattern. Secondly, since they have defined lines -- almost edges or corners -- the light that hits them on one side drops into shadow quickly on the other.

Camera: Canon 40D 1/60s, f/2.8 at ISO 800 under fluorescent lighting.
