PhotoHunt: Flags

This is my last night of vacation in Sarasota, Florida. I'm posting
from my iPhone (original flavor), so apologies for the appearance of
this post. :-)

Several weeks ago, for my PH: Memory post, I showed you a happy memory
of last year's visit to Sarasota. This week, I show tonight's sunset,
the clouds and waves blowing like flags in the stiff Gulf of Mexico
breeze... Another memory for another year...

The PhotoHunt theme this week is "Creamy"

I'm working on a recipe for lower fat, lower calorie cheesecake. Not quite perfected yet, but getting there! When I get it right, I'll be posting the recipe on Flamingo Musings. But until then, a shot of the Creamy process:

Okay, it's a little tough to pour with one hand and shoot with the other!

Happy Weekend!

PhotoHunt: Lock

The PhotoHunt theme this week is "Lock"

I went rather traditional, this week. The word evokes power, and so I went for the powerful image.

This last one presented itself just this morning!

PhotoHunt: Advertisement

The PhotoHunt theme this week is "Advertisement"

That sea life mural is painted on the back of the Macy's department store building in downtown Miami. It was supposed to be an advertisement for the pleasures of visiting Miami. No one is really quite sure why it shows frolicking whales. Which don't live around here. Unless you visit the Seaquarium. Really. And yes, it is a little vague, which is kind of the point. Artistic license, I guess, but I remember when it was done, we all gathered around, stared at it for a bit, and said (with nearly one voice) "Whales?"

If you look closely, you'll see the Metromover and tracks running alongside it. The station opens directly into the second floor of the Macy's. Convenient when it's raining, as it was when I shot this photo. :-)
Well, I didn’t win, but my recipes ranked 5th & 6th in the Ile de France contest. WooHoo! Thanks to everybody who voted for me!
