The Teenage Mutant Ninja Limes (TMNL) portrait series is a clever play on nostalgia. It likens the look of a whole lime to the heads of the four Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. The texture and color is almost dead on. With the adorable addition of colorful eye masks, adults and children alike will find themselves nodding in approval while appraising the humorous spoofs.

Shot by David Schwen, a photographer based in Minneapolis, United States, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Limes photo series takes food photography to a playful, cartoonish level. The photographer, who was also responsible for the Pantone Food Pairings series, states simply, "I've always thought that limes looked like a certain character in the pop culture world."
