Lemons are a lot of things — a garnish, good addition to salad dressings and fish, attractive when wedged on a diet soda, tasty when squeezed into a clear, hard liquor and pretty when piled in a bowl on a table, for instance.
Here’s what they’re not: tasty when eaten by themselves.
However, they are an excellent prop when you want babies to make really, really funny faces. Photographers David Wile and April Maciborka know that. And you’ll love them for knowing that after you see these photos they took of tots trying to eat lemons in a series called Pucker.
