I immediately thought of Rene Magritte's painting of a chap in a bowler hat with an apple in front of his face. The only bowler hat I had to hand was on a 1970's flour shaker, Fred, and as an apple was way too big I used a satsuma, cut in half, hollowed out & held in place with cotton thread. Well, I enjoyed taking this shot.

the reflection on his left sholder is a bit distracting but otherwise its a vary good image and fits the challenge vary well

My 2nd favourite in the challenge! Love it! Not so keen on the reflections in his hat and body and the background seems too grey. Still, excellent! 9

very cute send-up of a famous painting, but it doesn't look terribly surreal to me :-(
