Mundanity

There are few things as mundane, as banal as houseflies. They only capture my attention when they buzz around my food, or when caught by a gifted photographer.

Below are two shots taken by Leigh Hall. The first one is of a fly shmorgesborg. Now, I rarely inquire into what exactly a swarm of flies is eating. I hardly ever like the answer. But in this case you'll be happy to know that they are eating a rotten apple. That's pretty harmless, huh?

This last shot is exactly what it looks like. It needs no commentary.

It's like during an after speed dating class...

'Mmm, this rotten apple tastes divine! May I lick your regurtiation? Mmm yes, delcious.' DING DONG! NEXT FLY!
'Mmm... Haven't I already spoken to you?'
'My sister looks exactly the same as me.'

whoa, slow down there buddy! This is considered XXX material in...maybe..a state!

It's like prison- mess hall for lunch, then the big guy makes the little guy his...yanno.
