What is this photo of a light plug doing here? The triangle in front of my house has about 8 of them sticking out of the cement in a high-traffic zone. At night each is covered up by the table of a restaurant that crops up magically at sundown, but during the day, people crossing the little plaza just have to avoid them–crossing at their own risk. It pays to pay attention when walking in Mexico. And always look down.
The painting in the La Manzanilla gallery, entitled “Infancia” is by Alvaro Chavarin. Love it.
Gloria is home now but still doing her photo assignments. This is her last lovely batch. Click on any photo to enlarge all. I’m sure she’d enjoy hearing your impressions in the comments below. She doesn’t have a blog so I’m sharing these with you.
Gloria has actually taken photographs for more than seven days, but I’ve neglected to post some and combine others. Here are her most recent shots:. I’m very curious about that first shot..any ideas about how she did it? Look for her six other photo shoots in earlier blogs, including an explanation about how this assignment came about.

Gloria’s continued with her daily photography assignment since she went home, so wanted to share her floral and plant offering for Cee’s Flower prompt:
For Cee’s FOTD prompt.
If the Shoe Fits
Wrinkles Can Be Beautiful
Gloria’s back in her own home now but still doing her homework assignments. I’m still sharing! As usual, click on photos to enlarge.
Gloria’s Assignment, Day 5
photo by Gloria Palazzo “Her majesty.”
Click on photo to enlarge. This is a sculpture from my garden photographed by Gloria as part of her daily assignment while staying with me. She says she may resume her photography when she goes home as she hasn’t done it for some years. Lucky for us.
Though we’re at day 14 of Gloria’s assignments, we’ve fallen a bit behind in posting her daily photos so I’m just labeling them as I post them. She’s going home tomorrow but perhaps she’ll continue to post. This batch is very intriguing. Click on photos to enlarge.
This is Gloria’s third day challenge and a landmark day. She went outside to take the photos!! Click on first photo and arrows to enlarge all.
The doctor says Gloria has to have 5 little meals a day, but naughty Gloria didn’t want to eat even three. The solution? Culinary seduction. (Click on first photo to enlarge and see captions.)
These are the best strawberries I’ve seen in years!
First, I removed the calyx and pith of the strawberries.
This is the easiest way I’ve found. That is just a jumbo-sized plastic soda straw that I’m using.
You wind up with a pretty little tree
And a perfectly cored strawberry.
I cut up the strawberries as well as the papaya from my own tree. (Try not to hate me.)
Sweetened some natural yoghurt with stevia (you can also use honey)
Chopped up some walnuts
and added some granola.
And Gloria ate the whole bowlful. How to tame a resistant appetite!
And, don’t forget to save the straw. You can buy these tiny brushes just made for cleaning out small and large soda straws. Don’t buy new plastic straws, but do continue to use the ones you have!
This is a photo Gloria took today. Gorgeous.
