Sunday Snapshots: Citrus Crush

This past week I’ve been crushing on citrus fruits. I think my week’s crush was started from working on Jean’s (Lemons and Anchovies) interview. In fact after salivating over Jean’s many recipes, using lemons, I caught myself craving and using lemons and so many foods. Thanks Jean;)

When I went to pick up lemons I also found some Kumquats. They are one of my favorite fruits. I couldn’t help myself and so had to shoot a few photos before devouring them.

Even though it is not citrus season here I was lucky enough to find these fine specimens.

When I was shooting a little birdie came my way. I think she wanted a taste. In case you’re wondering why her hair is so disheveled, they are molting.

Before my feathery visitor flew away she left me a little gift…

Happy Sunday! I hope you’ve had a lovely weekend. I’ll have another recipe for you tomorrow, see you then.

    Absolutely beautiful! My grandpa loved kumquats. There were a lot of kumquat trees where he worked and no one ever picked them, until my grandpa told everyone that they were a delicious fruit. He’d bring home buckets full of golden kumquats, most we’d eat, and the rest were used to make a jam. So delicious! :)

    Your beautiful bird reminds me of my gorgeous little love bird that I owned. He used to travel around on my shoulder or in my pocket, as proud as punch of his status. Unfortunately he is no longer with us and I miss him.

    When you took these pictures were the lights off in the room and you are using artificial lighting on one side? I would like to learn more how your pictures come out so amazing.
