Sugar or salt? Although I’m more of a salty person there are times when I can’t resist sugary things, or rather taking photos of sugary things.

“Sugar and spice and all things nice, that’s what little girls are made of. Slugs and snails and puppy dog’s tails, that’s what little boys are made of.” So ran a popular saying when I was a child.
Ailsa is to blame for making me post these!
I have been lucky enough to travel to lots of interesting places and have tasted some wonderful (and not so wonderful) food.
a roadside food vendor in India
food catering on an industrial scale for the many pilgrims visiting the golden temple of Amritsar

This is the bud
the ephemeral beauty of night-flowering cacti plants. Within half an hour of my taking this shot the flower had already started to wither
the ephemeral beauty of the last persimmons/kaki/sharon fruit in the garden – ephemeral because it’s a question of who gets them – me or the birds. I think the birds are winning ….
All photos were taken with an iphone 6+ using the Camera+ app, and the macro setting for the first two

I love eating food but have only recently starting photographing it and it’s not always easy to photograph what’s on your plate!
anyone for insects?
good enough to eat? I think not – too much colourant!

Linking up with Sunday Stills
Jake’s challenge is to share something relating to natural resources. Natural resources are materials and components (something that can be used) that can be found within the environment. Every man-made product is composed of natural resources (at its fundamental level.
According to Wikepedia: “The Cascata delle Marmore (Marmore’s Falls) is a man-made waterfall created by the ancient Romans. Its total height is 165 m (541 feet), making it one of the tallest in Europe and the tallest man-made waterfall in the world. Of its 3 sections, the top one is the tallest, at 83 m (272 feet). It is located 7.7 km from Terni, a provincial capital of the Italian region of Umbria.
Its source is a portion of the waters of the river Velino (the rest of the river flows into a hydroelectric power plant), after flowing through Piediluco lake near the community of Marmore. It pours into the valley below formed by the river Nera. Its flow is turned on and off according to a published schedule, to satisfy the needs of tourists and the power company alike. Tourists try to be there the moment the gates are opened to see the powerful rush of water”.
It was obviously a very popular spot with families at the weekend; on the day we visited the falls the car park was soon full and there was standing-room only on the small viewing platform. The water thunders over the ledge and down in the valley far below, sending up plumes of spray with rainbow lights in them.

Jake’s Sunday Post this week challenged us to feature “delicious” photos. Here are some of mine:
edible carved vegetables – delicious to look at but possibly not to eat
definitely good enough to eat
baked white snapper
delicious-looking cakes but horrible (IMHO) to eat
a good choice of liquid deliciousness here
one man’s meat is another man’s poison ….
this butterfly seems to find the cocktail suitably delicious
this glorious beach-side setting ensured that the cocktail was absolutely delicious
