Fishless Chips

I received the below new lunch menu from a local restaurant via email immediately before reading the daily prompt, which was “Flourish.”  It was inevitable that the two would merge.


A NEW
LUNCH MENU is being offered from 11:00 am to 2:00 pm
  • Fish & Chips with Coleslaw
  • Burritos ( Shrimp or Fish)
  • Chimichangas (Shrimp or Fish)
  • Tacos Shrimp or Fish
  • Large Salad with  Shrimp

Fishless Chips

Never have I had a wish
for any kind of seafood dish––
fillet of flounder or tuna knish.
The only menu I find delish
is piscine-free, served with a flourish.
So if this bod you wish to nourish,
just french fry spuds and skip the fish!

is, I fear, devoid of fish.https://dailypost.wordpress.com/prompts/flourish/

Day 2, Seven Day Nature Photo Challenge

I love the different levels of reality this photo seems to reveal.  The clarity and brilliant colors of the fish nearer the surface are echoed by the dream fish farther below.  Then that ultimate reality––the clouded sky––reflected in the water, as well as the trees. Even the shadow in the water of the gargoyle of a nearby building as well as this picture itself reflect man’s desire to become godlike by creating beauty in imitation of nature.  We are all part of one big circle and for me this photo reveals that truth. 

 

I’m honored to have been invited by master photographer Cee from ceenphotography.com to participate in a challenge called Seven Day Nature Photo Challenge. (Check out Cee’s nature photos as well as her thousands of other wonderful photographs by clicking on the ceenphotography link above.

As part of this challenge, I am to post one nature photograph a day for one week and to ask one other person to join the challenge each day.  Today I ask you to check out the excellent and varied photography of S.M Kelly , whom I have asked to play along. Go here to do so:   http://smkelly8.com/

Cees Black and White Photo Challenge, Sepia

Sepia

 This fish and the other objects in the first picture were found in exactly this position on the beach. I was fascinated by the beauty of the arrangement and the details of the fish that was not a fisherman’s catch but had obviously died either before or after it washed ashore.

By the way, I got a broom and some plastic oars and some help and we did get this fellow back out to the water.
