Teatime at a nature reserve’s café with the parents.

Samosa time…mmmm. Nothing homemade, just frozen samosas (potato filling) which they deep fry…but NICE samosas. Nice enough to not dip in any condiment. Isn’t ‘condiment’ a funny word? Condiment. Aaanyway…so there I am feeling snaphappy and taking pics of goodness-knows-what. I’ve focused on this basket when my mum’s hand goes samosa hunting just as I release the shutter. Talk about timing! As it turns out, I sorta like the shot and am glad I didn’t chuck it. Taken in BW mode.

V2: A pulled back shot of our table. Had to take this in colour ‘cos I liked the colours. The two bottles are chilli sauce and tomato sauce (ketchup) – Singapore’s two staple condiments (there’s that word again!).

As a great lover of the prosaic, the mundane, the everyday, the things that people take for granted and fail to see the joy in, I am bound to like this series. I'm staring to get seriously worried about myself as I prefer the mono version here, but only just.

Yes to the tea but samosas are poison to me unfortunately unless prepared in a rice wrap. The photos of them don't make me ill though!!!

I LOVE WORDS!!!!!
Never thought of condiment in particular but it does have a pleasant tang to it, especially with samosas. Now there's a word for you . . .

Have you ever heard of The Meaning of Liff? No, it is not a typo. But it might well amuse you.*

Truly excellent black & white, Andrew, a very 'clean' rendition. The careful dof is nice too. V2 is making me just that little bit too hungry Tongue

Regards
Bill

*My favourite definition is from The Deeper Meaning of Liff for Glenwhilly (a Scottish village) : "A small pouch worn beneath the kilt during the thistle harvest" Smile

You're kidding me! I LOVE "The Meaning of Liff"!! I bought it, fell in love with it, and then both reluctantly and happily sent it to a friend of mine who loves words too GrinGrin LOL at 'Glenwhilly'...I remember that now!

It's a pity 'samosas' is not 'samomas'...then it'd be a palindrome.

V2 will make me more inclined to go to the kitchen for a snack and the colours are glorious, but the crop and out-take of the greater view shown here is my favorite of the two. Very nicely captured.
