Hidden Flower (so interesting... at least to me)

So I recently discovered a new variety of apple called Lucy Glo apples. They're delicious (like berries and apples had a baby named cotton candy), kind of blah looking (on the outside), and deep purple/pink on the inside. These were the first "red" fleshed apples I'd ever eaten. As I was eating them I realized that around the core, the flesh is white, so I cut one in half along the equator. It turns out the area around the core of the apple looks like a flower. It's white and it's sitting in a field of pink flesh. After looking at it for just a second I realized it didn't look like just any flower, but like an apple blossom. It's like the apple blossom that made that apple is hiding inside the apple. I'm guessing this structure is inside of all apples, but normally you can't see it because most apples are just all white inside. Anyway, I decided to take some pics:

As always, CC are greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Dave

I am familiar with this variety of apple. Back here in Maryland it is called something different but can't remember what the name is! Only 1 place in the entire state grew them and sold them. People came from all over the MD/DC/PA/VA areas to buy them.
It was very fruity, crisp and left a wonderful sweet taste in my mouth. I like apples that crunch!!!

The skin is also unique. Reminds me of some lily pads near me! I believe if had not mentioned it being an apple I would have called it a lily pad!

I like how you delved deeper into the core( a pun sorry) for a cleaner look! Very abstract, very vibrant!
I say kudos to you for going outside da box here! Excellent composition in all ways photographic! Nice flower abstract!

Cool shots. Don't know if they have them up here in WA. I'm an apple guys and eat 1/2 of a cosmic crisp most days. Will have to look for these.
