Toro de Oro Pepper Reflection
The Golden Bull pepper... or Toro de Oro. This amazing beauty is from the Santa Barbara Farmers' Market. I picked it out on State Street this Tuesday for a photo shoot for a couple of upcoming Fine Art food photography shows. One show will be part of First Thursdays in Santa Barbara. The show will be displayed at the office of Casa Magazine in downtown Santa Barbara and the reception will be First Thursday (of course) the sixth of October at 5 to 8pm and is open to the public. Hope to see you there!

Where's the Goose?
Today was one of my favorite days of the year!
The Santa Barbara Summer Solstice Celebration.
This is one of the few parades I really try not to
I like the Big Dogs Parade too, but I really go to that one to spot Basset Hounds. Of course, today I was looking for the goose that produced these eggs, but they wisely must have left her at home. :-D
These eggs are called "Cascarones," and they are a Mexican/Spanish carnival tradition (they may even have roots in Italy.) It is customary to break them over your friends' heads.

There are not may California Poppies
blooming at the moment. But the ones that
are sure do put on a nice show.
It was the pollen that attracted me to this particular flower.
