Ok, so these blooms are fake…and this is a morbid interpretation of this theme. Welcome to October.
Lemon pudding filled lemon cupcakes with raspberry buttercream. These were based on recipes I found for Limoncello filled cupcakes with Chambord buttercream. However, because these were for a work party they had to be N/A. Sad, no? 🙂
From the wide world of things that make you go, “what the?!?” A little chunk of floor, from an old bank (obviously) which has been laid up against this tree so long it’s grown over… I went back and forth between B/W and color on this one, and various shades of in-betweens. Finally settled on the “crisp” preset to give it some subdued moodiness…because that seems like a good fit for pictures of old junk.
I made this Irish Whiskey Cake (link to recipe) for our friend’s birthday, who was born on St. Patrick’s Day. This thing was so loaded with booze the leftovers wouldn’t freeze! It was amazing, though…
I actually probably take more pictures of food than anything else. This is Kraft’s Pizza Pasta Salad (link to recipe). I actually thought it was pretty good, despite the fact that I’m not a big fan of pasta salad, Italian dressing, or salami. I must say it was quite edible.
These petroglyphs appear in the Kaibab National Forest. Apparently they were vandalized a few years ago and the sand blasting that removed the paint caused the symbols to lose some of their luster. It’s still pretty neat, though. Arizona has a lot of more impressive petroglyphs than this one, but I’ve not yet been to them.
This is one of my frequent photo faux pas… I like to use the action mode on my camera to take multiple shots quick and (theoretically) freeze the action really sharp. However, usually when I’m doing this I’m in the woods and the autofocus zones in on a branch between me and what I’m looking at, and I end up with this. Still kind of cool. I mean, how often do you get to see a bear fight? It went on for about 10 minutes. Bearizona, of course.
