Once a week or so I usually end up making a meal of all the left-overs in the fridge. Strange what you can make with ingredients that are not normally bedfellows!

How strange, and how beautiful. Two unlikely companions, thrown together by life's uncertainties, clinging to each other as they fade away.

A still life photographer couldn't have arranged those discards any better.
Very well seen.

I almost get the feeling, Matian, hat in the composition and subject matter, the beautiful color, that this is a metaphor for what is going on in your country. Beautiful.

Yes, Peter. They are different but ended up together. We are unable to find common ground so far.
The late President was very skillful about instilling hate on people.

That's what made me come back, I had already passed them and was very happy with the couple and the flag shot. But they looked so bright and lonely that I turned around pulled out my camera and took the time to change the settings (it was getting dark very quickly) and frame it well.

It seems whatever you have a go at photographing you get the result.
This works well, and also fits in with Silly Sunday.
