In my line of work I look through a lot of stock photos of fruits and vegetables. I started to notice some disturbing apples... over shined, slick-looking apples, lubed up like they were competing in a bodybuilding competition. Naturally, I started a collection.  

The oily apple that started it all. Glorious, innit?

This one really stands out from it's neighbors. A shining example.

A greased up apple a day...

A classy glassy trio.

Incomplete lube-job, if you ask me.

Sometimes they use Rain-X

It's like a fishing net... from the Exxon Valdez.


A PEAR of gleaming tree fruits.

Gross old book, shiny new apple. Smooth move, teacher's pet.

Is that the glass they used to dip these apples in Wesson?

Not too oily, butt HILARIOUS.

Giant apples need lard, too.

I know! Let's put our oily apples on a surface that looks like a puddle in a mechanic's parking lot!

Are these even apples?

So slick it can't even stay right-side-up.

Lubricious. (thanks,

There seems to be no end to the amount of crazy/interesting/unexplainable/gross/funny things you can find on stock websites. I love it! Here is my 3rd installment of these wacky finds (see first post here and second post here).

Dangerous. But I kinds want some...


Traumatizing cows.

I confess, I have considered doing this.

Special delivery. (Shit, I totally did not intend that pun. It's awful and I'm awful. But I'm leaving it.)


Good luck with that shutter button, bud.

There will be nightmares.

So many nightmares.
Did I mention NIGHTMARES?!

It's medical! For my nightmares!

Hautedog Couture. Eggsellent.

Is in the eye of the beholder.

Awww.... how cute. Umbilical cord heart!
It's your birthday, christmas and your first passed out stripper all in one!


Jackass The Movie 6: The new cast from Georgia!
I got nothin'.

I think he hit his brain!

Oh, Australia.
Mmmmmm. cannibalism.

One of my favorite apps is the Hiptamatic photo app. A few months ago they released a limited addition "Foodie" Hipstapac. "Hipstapacs" are lens, film and flash combos that you can buy to get different effects when you take photos. The Foodie pac is a Lofus lens and Catelli's film. This combo takes really fantastic food photos, considering the light is good and the food is colorful.

The photos are over-saturated but in a warm and appetizing way. There is also a bit of blurring around the edges to give it the photos that shallow depth-of field look that is so desired in food photography. The whites are extra-white, and the colors are so vibrant. The center is in focus, and usually really good focus. Here are some of the most Mouth-watering photos I've taken with the Hiptamatic Foodie Pac!

What is your favorite Hipstamatic lens/film combo?
