For this week's L.A. Weekly Flickr photo pool, we bring you a banana, courtesy of Lucyrk in LA. Or rather, just the peel. Artfully twisted so that the label faces the viewer, but upside down. It's Chiquita. Look closer, and you read, “Ecuador.” Meanwhile, the backdrop is plainly L.A.: Gray sky. Cars. Parking lot. Telephone poles with thick wires. A tallish building. (Could it be Capitol Records?) So far from Ecuador. Sorry about that, locavores. If you have your own gorgeous food photos, consider uploading to our photo pool. Even banana peels can be artistic.
