My Photos of the Day: Autumn Polaroid Week!

Silver Frame

Flickr  used to be a place where I hung out and shared my photography a lot. I made plenty of friends on there, some I’ve met offline, but many of which are still my friends. I was constantly inspired, especially by the film photography groups.  Polaroid Week started in 2006, but I only began participating in 2008 when I got my first SX-70. Since then, I try to participate during each Polaroid Week. It’s not just all about photos taken with original Polaroid film (which stopped production of film in 2008)  or even Impossible Project Film , but a celebration of all instant film photography. It’s fun to see familiar and new faces in the group and there are so many great shots shared. If you’re interested, don’t hesitate to check it out from Oct 20-24!

Three Stages of Baby Lima Bean Soup.

Shelled and rinsed organic baby lima beans. I bought them at the West End Market and Bakery.

Sautéed Vidalia onion, filtered water, bay leaf, baby lima beans, fresh ham hocks, a couple of crushed garlic cloves. Right before it was done cooking, I added a little apple cider vinegar.

Delicious!

After simmering a few hours later, I seasoned with salt and pepper, and apple cider vinegar to taste. Delicious!

My Photo of the Day: Shrimp!

KJE_3576

Our one year anniversary of living in Downtown Augusta is here and I’ve realized that the end of summer/start of Autumn will definitely be my favorite time of year in our part of Georgia. Yes it’s still a bit humid, but not like during the summer. The mornings are cooler and even though sunrise is later, I feel myself feeling less stressed out.

I also remember why we chose to live downtown instead of anywhere else in Augusta, because it’s nice to walk to things. There are a few festivals and events that also go on downtown during this time of year. We’re back to our Saturday routine of walking to the Augusta Market at the River and buying muscadine grapes and sometimes hushpuppies. Today we bought some fresh shrimp from Port Royal Sound in Beaufort County, South Carolina. They were caught this morning and brought to market, you can’t get much fresher than that! Heads on, of course, even though my husband is a bit squeamish about that. Shhh! It’s also the start of oyster season and I need to learn how to shuck oysters because I do love them!
