Foto Friday: Fat Fruit
Today, fatty balls of nature's goodness. Tomorrow (well, Tuesday) deadly organic projectiles from HELL! We're expecting a tropical storm, and the avocados have me surrounded.
(On the other hand, if the power goes out and supplies can't get through and I run out of food, at least I'll be up to my ankles in guacamole!)
Long-time residents I've talked to are all extremely nonchalant about the oncoming doom. When Rita was bearing down on Houston in 2005, I couldn't look at the soap swirling down the bathtub drain without quivering. There's a hurricane in the tub! Flee! (This is true; you'll remember that Rita was three or four weeks after Katrina.)
By the way, I'm rather proud of this picture. I finally figured out what the focus ring was for. Hey, look! I can move this, and the avocados are in focus, but the background isn't! Neat! Most of my pictures are focused at infinity. I sometimes contemplate gluing the ring there.
