Manual Landscape

Jennifer has a new photography prompt generator that I thought I’d try out.  The prompt I drew was “Manual Landscape,” which reminded me of this photo I took yesterday.  A few days ago, I posted a picture of these chiles and their bloom.  (See that posting Here.)At the time, it occurred to me that the viewers would have no idea of how small they are, so yesterday, I decided to hold them in my hand to show scale. So, my hand provides the “manual” and the plant provides the landscape!  Perfect.

About lifelessons

My blog, which started out to be about overcoming grief, quickly grew into a blog about celebrating life. I post daily: poems, photographs, essays or stories. I've lived in countries all around the globe but have finally come to rest in Mexico, where I've lived since 2001. My books may be found on Amazon in Kindle and print format, my art in local Ajijic galleries. Hope to see you at my blog.

      Tiny and very hot!!!! I’m spelling chiles the Mexican way, you are doing so the Aussie way and Americans spell it chilis. I wonder how many other countries have variations on the spelling? About running out of different ways to spell the word.

    When I came to the US & looked for Chillies in supermarkets, everyone sent me to Seasoning section & pointed to Chili Con Carne. I’ve learned to call it Chili-pepper. In Malay & Bahasa Indonesia, it is spelt Cili & those tiny ones in the pic look like Cili-Padi (which got its name/connotation from Padi or tiny rice grains).

      In whatever country or whatever spelling, they are now too hot for my palate, so I just enjoy looking at them! And it is handy to have something very hot around to go pick for the hearty souls who visit. Yes, chili is chili con carne in the states. The peppers are called chilies. Or chiles in Mexico..Chillies in Australia. I tried to correct the spelling of my Australian roommate and she set me straight!!!
