Picture These

dcarch7June 9, 2012

I made grilled gulf shrimps with fiddlehead fern and beet stems. As I said in the "beets" thread, I often cook beet greens, stems and roots in different dishes because they require different cooking time.

What are the other pictures for? What are those in the pictures ?

Well, they are related to the shrimp dish. Want to venture a guess? You will be surprised. :-)

I just love what you did with the beet stems! But I have no idea what those last pics are of.

Well, D looks like a close up of strawberry seeds - strawberry not quit ripe? A and B, I'm not sure.

C is kind of obvious? Garlic and peppers.

Your dish looks beautiful. Love the beet stems.

Thank you everyone.

So here is the story with the pictures. ALL the pictures were taken with my cell phone's camera.

You hear this all the time, " I am sorry about the quality of my photos, they were taken with my cell phone."

In reality, a cell phone's camera is a very capable optical device. I have used my cell phone to take pictures for many of my past posts here. Used properly you will be amazed what a cell phone camera can do.

1. Picture C - Elephant garlic. Giant gloves, (compare them with the peppers), not a bad shot.
2. Piture D - greginnd is correct, a macro shot of a strawberry seed.
3. Picture A - a macro shot of a single brown rice.
4. Picture B - a macro shot of two sesame seeds, one black and one white.

Macro shots were done by putting a magnifying glass in front of the lens.

Two important things will get you very good pictures with a cell phone camera:

Good bright lights and a steady tripod.
