Frozen in the moment. Still fresh, Magic.
I went back to an external hard drive and dug through archives
Looking for images that say fresh. I sure like to photograph my food. Scroll down for the fresh statue.

Another guest post with the orange theme.
My friend and former colleague,Toni, emailed me photos from her Sunday visit to Phipps Conservatory and Botanical Gardens, ORANGE.
Seeing the orange made her think of the theme this week.
I asked if she’d agree to be guest blogger and here are her orange photos.
Thanks Toni. Your photos are a bright spot.

There’s been a lot of snow, ice and gray photos on the blog lately until today.
My dear friend has escaped the frigid north to sunny Florida for a vacation and
today she sent me some bright orange photos of an Orange Juice Processing Tour she’d been on just yesterday. WOW.
The weekly photo challenge is ORANGE. Perfect timing.
I invited her to be guest blogger for orange and then she sent me the Bird of Paradise flower.
She’s anonymous for now as no one needs to know she’s away and full photo credit can be posted upon her return home.
Thanks for the orange photos.

“The marks on the oranges are from the ocean breeze making limbs brush across the fruit as it grows”

The Weekly Photo Challenge is supposedly the Rule of Thirds but the presentation of the challenge is so completely different from what I have been taught and teach- I thought of adding the grid on some of these images to size them up. But decided to just go with what I see as broken up into thirds, or in some cases threes.
Confined myself to a NYC archive to simplify the selections. My gallery doesn’t fit the parameters of the suggested minimalist, off center subject and a blurry background.
Depth. Going deep. Depth of field. Meaurement. Feeling. Distance. Diving- where depth matters.

Brand new today. I was wondering what to post for this week’s photo challenge.
We went to a delicious brunch at our friends’ home Saturday morning.
I received this unexpected gift- at first I thought it was a whisk broom for clothes – but no, can you guess?
It’s a cake tester! Perfect for a baker. A cake baker. Just need an occasion to bake a cake.
Pull a broom straw and insert in the cake’s center to test the cake’s doneness. Make sure it comes out clean.
I’m hanging my brand new cake tester on the pot rack right next to the over door as the little verse suggests.
Thanks Rich and Barb for a lovely time and for this unique gift.
Brother Michael’s photograph is on the wall at Rocco’s Pasticceria down on Bleecker Street.
Brother Michael LaMantia served “51 years as a brother in the Scalabrini Order and nearly 40 years at the parish in the heart of Greenwich Village.”
(Our Lady of Pompeii Church is across the street from Rocco’s. My sister says there is a memorial to Brother Michael in the church.
Before Brother Michael passed in 2013, he gave the Pasticceria this statue of Saint Rocco. Brother Michael is Gone, But Not Forgotten.
Thanks to Krista Evans for this challenge

Franco (posing for me with a cheesecake below) is the one who showed me Brother Michael’s prayer card on the wall at Rocco’s and told me that Brother Michael had given the Saint Rocco Statue to the store. Franco has been at Rocco’s for more than thirty years!
Here is Franco posing for me with a cheesecake. Mary and I stopped in Saturday night for a coffee and pastry after a nice day at Galleries and Target First Night at the Brooklyn Museum.
