Sometimes I see an object/scene/person/situation and I just want to take a picture. Oftentimes, I can't even figure out why I want to take a snap of it and mostly it is something ordinary like leaves on the ground or the shadow of a fence. But one thing I definitely am drawn to are bright colors - and shiny objects - don't make fun :/
Also, the other day I was making a stir-fry seasoning in a mortar and pestle (what do you call that? pounding? crushing? pwning?) out of garlic, cilantro, peppercorns and kosher salt. When I scooped the finished product into a spoon and set it aside on my cutting board I spied another colorful vignette:
(Also, please don't let the texture mislead you, this seasoning is yummilicious! It's pungent and peppery and herby all at once. I stir-fried it with some shredded left-over roast chicken for a quick and easy week-day dinner.)
Am I alone in this (aside from the magpies)? What everyday objects catch your fancy?
