Stuff Portrait Friday: Tasty

I came home today freshly pedicured, manicured, and waxed, ready to relax. Then I remembered SPF. So much for relaxing…but at least I had perfectly arched brows and pretty toes and fingers while I did this week’s assignment!

For this week’s spicy edition, Kristine asked to see:

1. Your Spices
2. Salt and Pepper

3. Add a little spice to your picture.

Well, my spices are lonely. And dusty. The ones Matte uses on his Tombstone pizzas are usually the only ones that see any action. So I converted this shot to black and white to convey the drab taste of these spices and herbs that are far beyond their “Best by xxx date.” Tarragon is my favorite, but if I’m going to make something with it, I use the fresh stuff. Much tastier!
Not so spicy spices

My salt and pepper is fancy, isn’t it? Yes, each evening while I dine, I grind each peppercorn by hand, then sprinkle it over my food. Or not. But this composition is so much more exciting than my boring salt & pepper shakers that don’t even show the salt or the pepper inside the ceramic Jiminy Cricket and Pinocchio.
Salt 'n Pepa

I created this work of art awhile back. Krissy had sent me this photo of herself, taken on an airplane. She looks utterly breathtaking here, doesn’t she? So, I created one of those motivational posters (make your own here) to describe what I felt upon seeing the photo for the first time. In this shot she looks like Jay London from Season 2 of Last Comic Standing.
Beauty or Beast?

Happy SPF! And happy just-plain Friday!

Did you play?
