Kung Pao Chicken on a Hot August Night


Last Friday, I spent the entire day inside an office.  You know how offices are:  monochromatic, plain, plastic, chrome, and if you are lucky, a little glass.  

After being cooped up all day, I went out for a bite of supper.  Since it was warm, I ate outside.   The late afternoon sun hitting my plate of Kung Pao chicken just made the colors explode.  This image is not altered.  These were the colors.   The colors were quite invigorating after a day surrounded by the ordinary and plain.

What a contrast to the rest of my day.  What contrasting images, colors, shapes, ideas, and motifs do you see around you today?  How does this make you feel?  Can you share your observations by writing or image?

  1. I love Chinese! Now you’re making me hungry! LOL. What an intriguing prompt to boot!

  2. Yum. Your photo makes my mouth water.

  3. This brings back memories of the lunch box spies thing I did with a Canadian who photographed his lunch every day. Good one Lori!
