The WordPress Daily Prompt provides the theme of Laughter, which caused me to take a little mental detour…
I started thinking about sources of laughter, which can be jokes, funny situations, and many other scenarios. Usually, such merriment is all too short-lived, so what should make us happy enough to be a platform for lighthearted laughter? How about ice cream?
There’s nothing like children’s excitement and joyous laughter at the sound of a nearby ice cream truck! Let’s enjoy this ice cream moment, and laugh out loud to clear our worried minds and release some much needed endorphins!
The WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge provides the theme of Sweet, for which I posted a rather Valentine-themed entry yesterday.
Today, I thought it might be interesting to provide a more year-round winner of the candy category, which has been a staple for sweet-tooths for quite a while: M&Ms! While I am not a fan of chocolaty, crunchy candies (I prefer Dutch licorice and chocolate with caramel), they are interesting to photograph…
You might feel the urge to reach out and grab the rainbow of M&Ms!
Welcome to the 92nd round up of the Tuesday Photo Challenge! There were plenty of delicacies in this week’s posts!
You were very creative in creating great variety, ranging from how delicious life can be to lots of foods that are irresistible. Some of you admitted to having a weakness for certain foods, which I can appreciate 🙂 On top of that, it was great that some of you looked at delicious from a different perspective: sheep and horses have things that they find delicious as well!
Thank you for creating a wonderful set of posts with fantastic viewing and reading!
Here are some candies for your delicious sweet tooth…
This photo came from a bit of experimentation and sorting of M&Ms to get some cool colors; the observant will notice that I left out the brown ones 🙂 I understand that lots of people find these candies delicious, but I’m not among those 🙂
The following were this week’s participants in the challenge with links to their posts:
In Giggles & Tales, Stella shares a lot of delicious items; I challenge you to look at her post without getting hungry!
In Bushboy’s World, Brian shows us how to make spicy vegetable couscous, which I would certainly enjoy!
The post contributed by CitySonnet is gorgeous and certainly dangerous for any sweet-tooth…I might want to eat all of those cakes!
Miriam writes two fantastic posts in Out an’ About; the first post talks about shifting thoughts and a wonderful song! The second post in Out an’ About provides a perfectly delicious formula for enjoying life!
Musin’ with Susan takes us to the enjoyment of the eclair with a fantastic photograph!
This week iballrtw takes us to location that I really like: a fromagerie in Paris with a wonderful display!
Welcome to Week 92 of the Tuesday Photo Challenge. Last week’s bounty of circles was stunning with a creative set of interpretations that will have you around time and again to read all the interesting posts.
As luck would have it, your responses to the challenge and comments on yesterday’s ’round up’ provided inspiration for this week’s theme. In particular, there were some great food-related posts and Debbie’s question that led to me to the theme of Delicious!
Of course, that provides a rather wide set of interpretation opportunities and I fully expect that many of you will present something unusual that is delicious; tastes do vary, and sometimes it’s all about how daring you are. I’m sure that not everyone will find snails delicious, or that everyone likes lobster (just imagine how adventurous the first people were that ate lobsters).
Have fun coming up with ideas, photos and great posts on this week’s theme!
Here are some circles, that are also delicious…
This photo I took a number of years ago, when I was taking a food photography class. This one was all about lighting your subject, so I decided to try and create a bit of a mood as well. Warm tones throughout the image and softened shadows give a sense of these cupcakes being ready to eat in a familiar kitchen.
The full rules of this challenge are in TPC Guidelines, but here’s the tl;dr:
Create a pingback link to this post, so that I can create a post showing all of the submissions over the week (note: pingbacks may not appear immediately, as my site is set up to require approval for linking to it; helps against previous bad experiences with spamming)
Have fun creating something new (or sharing something old)!!
I’m looking forward to some delectable images that will leave me hungry!
The WordPress Daily Prompt has the theme of Flavorful. Of course, there might be something good to eat somewhere!
A popular category of foods in the United States are those that are termed comfort foods; all the things that you want to eat with a bit of guilty pleasure, because you know that they are not necessarily the healthiest options, but they make you feel so good! What this means varies from person to person, as we all have our individual tastes.
For me, the ultimate comfort food is a well-prepared macaroni and cheese….
There is nothing like the gooey goodness of a delicious combination of cheeses, with a bit of crust from baking in the over, and the flavorful surprise of encountering a small cube of ham in your bite. A guilty pleasure, yes; bring it on!!
