    This Afternoon

    The locals call this an egg tree, don't ask me why. The fruit is tasteless, just for decoration. I liked the way the sunlight lit the leaves from behind and the veins are showing.

    Sara, nobody looked at you strangely while you took those pictures? I was afraid of some old lady calling Homeland Security on me for "suspicious behavior".
    They say, "Practice makes perfect," yet they also say, "Nobody's perfect". I don't get it.

    Well, the first fruit stand I went to, the owner started speaking to me really fast in french and when i asked him to repeat himself and slow down so i could understand he looked annoyed so I wandered off. The next fruit stand I went to I asked him if he minded if I took pictures and he told me to please go ahead and fed me cherries for the 10 minutes I was there

    That is how it is Sara_ -- some people are friendly, some bite your head off. It can get touchy when you have a camera in hand, a lot of people do not like having strangers take a picture of them or their goods. Asking always is best. Were the cherries good?

    Here is a part of our breakfast this morning, peaches, raspberries and frozen yogurt on top, touch of cinnamon sprinkled over it.

    That's my baby, Grayson. He was only 2.5 pounds when I took that pic. Now he's 20 pounds or more. (Not fat, just BIG.)

    I'm waiting for the appropriate Photo Challenge to post other pics of him!

    If you are ever here, it would be a pleasure. I bet we would have a very lively conversation.

    I like to see more for sure. I am a real sucker for cats, small big, whatever, just love them.

    Oh, and I forgot to post this one, that is the bread that went along with the fruit, I made it yesterday. It also contains fruit: Raisins, Citron, and the stripe in there is marzipan, made from almonds.

    Look here, for a few more Cat Pics

    Oh, and here's one more - a recent shot:


    and they tell me he doesn't know what a camera is!

    Grayson loves yogurt and spinach.

    That bread looks delicious!

    Marzipan eh? You know what's up Datura.

    I have such a huge weakness for anything with marzipan. We have a bunch of old Italian bakeries in Carroll Gardens, Brooklyn (down 2 neighborhoods from me in Park Slope) where I can get marzipan cookies that are basically all marzipan with only pine nuts/pinolis in them, made by some old Italian guy who has been making them the same way his grandmother taught him.

    Sometimes it is the simple things, y'know? I think I need to go on a cookie run now .

    Me too, Marzipan -- yum. This is the wrong thread for it, but I could go on for a while …

    That is a nice pepper. I love when they have the little baby plants right within, the little green peppers in the red.

    Oh yes, we are a loud bunch all by ourselves already, explosive laughter, booming voices, hotly debated issues. Not to mention stubborn principles, unmovable.

    This is a photograph of a charcoal drawing that I did of a Bell Pepper. Does this count?

    Wonderful! That is interesting, I am an artist as well, and thinking back, I have never done a drawing or painting of a fruit or vegetable.

    I like what you did, nice composition.

    Haha! Nice, Shaun. :P

    This basket was sitting as-is on one of the circular tables at my work. The light coming through the windows against the cheap red plastic gave a nice red shadow against the table, and the contrast and composition was just lovely. I rarely get perfectly arranged shots like this. I think I cut off the bottom a bit too much though - oh well. It's still quite pretty. (It would work well as a "red" challenge too, I think...)
