plane tree | fruit

i had an amazing morning with this. the diffuse light at the window was exellent. [see two postings below] the tiny and fragile looking elements of the plane tree fruit were shouting »wood, wood, wood!« the main fruit was harder than any tree seed i ever experienced. my japanese knife did not make it through that half a centimeter thick core. below a higher res image, taken with my pixel 2 xl phone and the moment macro lens.
