This was an early exercise in gathering together, a group of related images and the thought that came to my mind was the banana/paw-paw pairing in my head. They sit together because of the feelings I had when we were living in Papua New Guinea and I was suffering a bout of hepatitis.
All food tasted like cakes of salt while the illness was at its peak but as I recovered, the first things I could eat comfortably were bananas and paw-paws. Manna from heaven at the time and I still hold that fondness for them.
