Yeah, Ms. Tomato bears a fierce resemblance to her grandmother here. And she's dead. Behind is the exit to our outdoor deck/food freezer. Francis and MS. T have been foraging for goods to serve the peeps. The zombie effect comes from working long and arduous hours in the dark. We are, actually, becoming newts.
Yep, here is part of the motley crew in one of the construction/maintenance shops we fondly refer to as the L.O. (Logistics Office) part of the Amundsen-Scott South Pole station. This was where we dined on charred whole pig and various burgers, dogs and bbq chicken with all the fixin's.
We played darts and poker and drank beer that was kept chilled in a sled. Then had red white blue cupcakes. Americana all-round! Happy Birthday, USA!
John Bentham, whose photo graces this post, is a friend of mine and a top-notch photographer whose work spans many moods. Always rich in texture and detail, his street scenes are just as beautiful and interesting as his food photography. He doesn't give classes all that often, and there is only space for 15 students, so if you are in the New York area, take advantage of his Food Photo Workshop at Gradisca Italian Restaurant on Sunday, July 12.
