Scavenger Hunt Sunday: Jello and Sunsets

Food:
Since I got my braces on Thursday, it's been the soft food diet. So lots of jello, yogurt, pudding, and soups. Nothing better than "strawberry" ko-jel - although the closest it ever came to a real strawberry was probably when the truck drove by a strawberry field on the way to the store...

Purple:
Purple poison? I think not! I love eggplant, either roasted, grilled, broiled, or in a Moroccan Eggplant stew that I made for Shabbat dinner!

In disguise:
It's a pumpkin, disguised as a jack-o-lantern. But, it is also Rube in Vase, a famous optical illusion! You either see a vase or two faces looking at each other - your eyes and brain disguise one, while you see the other.

Shapes:
A sphere and its shadows at the new Contemporary Art wing at the MFA. Such a great addition to the museum, a post of pics on that coming Tuesday!

Choice:
I had 4 bazillion other ideas for this, but then I saw this sunset Thursday night! Hello, amazing!! What a way to end the day, the colors were even more amazing in person!

I love the simple, uncluttered look of all your shots. I am fascinated by your shape shot and the sunset is stunning! Great set.

Great set this week Tamar. I can see why you selected that sunset-marvelous and amazing. Love that simple sphere from the museum and I laughed about that truck going by the strawberry field. Hope those braces settle in soon. I never had them, but then again, I'm living with an imperfect smile. Can we say that's character? Have a great day.

Braces can be painful sometimes and for sure jello is one of the best options.
