From the Corner Cafe at Tunxis Community College in Farmington, CT.
Another view of “Clan” by Primal Visions, 2005, previously shown in Coyoteception. I focused in on the third tribal figure on its right side, for this week’s FlickrFriday challenge.
A despicable red pull-tab from a can of Cheerwine cherry soda. This was one of the most difficult things I’ve tried to photograph. The camera just didn’t want to focus on it in any light or background. I put it against a black background to make it look darker and redder and despicabler.
Photographed for this week’s Macro Mondays challenge, “Pareidolia” (seeing faces and other familiar shapes in unrelated things).
At Cora Cora Restaurant in West Hartford, CT.
Chicharron de Colas de Camaron with fries. “Juicy shrimp tails seasoned with garlic, salt, pepper, egged, floured then fried. Served with house sauce, fried cassava or fresh fries and red onion salad.” I finally get a salad with enough onions in it! It had a cilantro dressing on it, which was perfect.
Lucuma ice cream. “Peruvian ice cream made with lucuma fruit.” Lucuma is an Andean fruit that looks like a cross of a peach and an avocado. The ice cream tasted like a cross of cherry, peach, and cantaloupe. It came with whipped cream, chocolate sauce, caramel, cherry, cookie stick, and mint garnish.
Blue margarita, coffee, water, and cancha. Cancha is fried Peruvian corn with a sauce put out on tables, like bar food.
