WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE: FROM EVERY ANGLE

 

Guest host Shane Francescut says go photograph a stationary subject from three different angles. Check out his photoblog The Weekly Minute, it’s so inspiring.

IN THE KITCHEN 
Where Creativity Meets Good Taste 

This is the ultimate cooking school and party space near me in Tequesta, Florida.  It’s Foodie Heaven. And Lenore is its Goddess.

She has a swellegant demonstration kitchen where you can learn new techniques, improve your skills, or just sit back and watch. She offers hands-on interactive classes and demonstrations. I attended the demo ~ Lenore did all the cooking, I did all the tasting.

In The Kitchen serves real food.  Fresh, natural ingredients.  Seasonal, local, organic.

For you gardeners and farm share holders, here’s my idol, Lenore, with a timely demo.

WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE: CREEPY

Chief Semicolon Advocate at WordPress Michelle W. says share an image of something creepy. Unsettling. Eerie. I dare you to look at her babies.

WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE: DOOR

WP photographer Cheri says a door is an everyday thing, yet is often a symbol — of a beginning, a journey forward or inward, a mark of one’s home, or even a step into the unknown.

Donde termina el arco iris,
en tu alma o en el horizonte?

Where does the rainbow end,
in your soul or on the horizon?

WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE: ENVELOPED

Beauty is composed of many things and never stands alone. It is so fragile it can be destroyed by a sound or a thought.  It may be infinitesimally small or encompass the universe itself.  It comes in a swift conception wherever nature has not been disturbed.

    -Sigurd Olson

I admire avian architects.

IMG_3243 The fabricator of this nest?  I’m not sure but the nest is blue-chip inside and out, ingeniously built with natural materials. My best guess?  It involves plenty of maternal labor. IMG_3242 It’s perfectly adapted to housing wee eggs and young offspring in safety and comfort. Fixed together with gossamer-like fibers, the young at the bottom of this nest will be enveloped in a mass of feathers. Mouth-gapingly awesome. IMG_3244
