Mixed locally grown salad greens, tomatoes, homemade herbed sourdough croutons, pan-fried tempeh, and a creamy pumpkin seed dressing. I was craving a Caesar salad, but didn’t actually have the ingredients on hand. I got the idea for the pumpkin seed dressing here, though I used Herbamare instead of the Himalayan salt and incorporated good virgin olive oil to emulsify the dressing. It was a satisfying salad and it made my tastebuds happy.
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!
