Foto Flip Friday – November Theme: “Travel Eats” (Week 1)
Welcome to a brand new edition of Foto Flip Friday – a selected showcase of photos dredged up from my bountiful photo archives and whittled into a pretty little “flip/flop” postcard each Friday. And to add to the fun, each month I’ll challenge myself to unearth a series of images that meet a monthly theme.
This month’s theme promises to be uh, delicious!: TRAVEL EATS
Why Travel Eats? Well heck, eating my way around the world is primarily why I travel. And you can bet I have gazillions of photos to prove it! Everything from roasted creepy-crawlies in Vietnam, to sipping fermented mare’s milk in Mongolia, to the most delish “amuse-bouche” followed by smoked salmon and cavier in Laos – I’ve sampled them all! So let’s get started, shall we? (do mouseover to see a short message on the back of each postcard).
For starters, we’ve got two fairly recent yummies. The first from my marathon whiz ’round the globe last February from Vietnam to Ecuador – via a most lovely 3 day layover hanging out with a good friend in D.C.:
(simply mouseover the image and watch the *magic!)
* Well o.k. for those viewing in IE, not so much a magical “flip” as a fading change. If you want to see the flip/flop, try viewing in Chrome or Firefox.
And here’s an example from here in Ecuador – amazing what one can do with a k.i.t.c.h.e.n!:
And finally, a long-ago fond walk-down-memory-lane, back when I was guiding small group trips to Belize and Costa Rica (uh, note the bottle of “Belikin” beer close by): 😉
All this month I’ll be rummaging through my archives for more “TRAVEL EATS” images, so check back next Friday to see another flip/flop postcard or two from my past.
And meanwhile – come on, you KNOW you have some scrumptious travel eats to share, so do submit a “Travel Eats” photo of your own (in landscape format, min. 700 px. wide). Just upload it to an online source (e.g. your blog, Facebook, Flickr, etc – make sure the privacy settings are set to “public”), and post a link to it in the comments below.
Who knows? I might just whittle it into a flip/flop digital postcard here!
