One Last Time

Standard

I had to do it! I had to!

I’m going to miss this Tim Flach series so I simply had to do one last post with some of the horse photographs which I didn’t include here.

It’s a bit of a mish-mash collection but there are some stunners!

Unfortunately this post has been posted on my blog a few days before I published it?!? So I’m reposting it for you guys in to see!  =

 

Okay, so bats are rather creepy in my opinion. I know some of them eat fruit and insects and maybe a few rodents but that does not change the fact that in my mind they are still some kind of vampiric animal! However, Tim Flach made me look again:

Okay, so these photos didn’t totally relieve me of my feelings toward the vampiric qualities of bats – HOWEVER I just love photo number five, is it the bat version of Zorro or some secret agent?!?! It’s just hilarious and yet I can still appreciate the animal itself – Well done Tim Flach – What’s your thoughts? Favourites? Or are you too a little scared?

We Stop This Series For An Urgent Baking Broadcast!!!!

Standard

Home-Made Creamy Tomato Soup  

And now for something….completely different. I’m taking a brief interlude in my photography series to share something delicious with you. A combination of my two favourite ingredients: tomatoes and basil…mmmmm! And if anyone looks at my pages regularly you will already have seen this one appear on the baking section of my blog site 😉 brownie points for loyal readers.

When I say this is easy I don’t mean mildly difficult like most chef’s mean – I mean bung everything in, heat it up and eat it up! That’s the sort of cook I am afraid I am so here it is – An easy tomato soup:

Home-Made Tomato Soup

Ingredients:

  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 onion – chopped
  • 1 garlic clove – finely chopped
  • 1 tbsp tomato purée
  • 400g can chopped tomatoes
  • handful basil leaf
  • pinch baking soda
  • 600ml milk

First: Heat the olive oil in a large pan, then tip in the onion and garlic. Cook over a moderate heat until the onion has softened, about 5 mins.

Second: Stir in the tomato purée, then pour in the chopped tomatoes and basil leaves, and bring up to the boil.

Third: Turn the heat down and leave to simmer for about 15 mins until thick and full of flavour. (If you like a smooth soup, like in the Heinz tins, then whizz the mixture at this point (most carefully of course) with a hand blender or some such implement. At this point you can cool the mixture and freeze it if that’s your plan – If you’re like me however and must eat whatever I cook right away carry on….

Fourthly: To finish the soup, tip the tomato mixture into a pan. Spoon the baking soda into a small bowl and pour over 1 tbsp or so of the milk. Mix together until there are no lumps, then tip into the tomato mix and pour over the milk. Bring up to a boil (the mixture will froth, but don’t worry – it will go away). Gently simmer for about 5 mins until ready to serve.

Got it? Good, I’m off to eat mine….

A Whole Herd of Helephants!!! – Tim Flach

Standard

I like elephants. There is something old and wise and measured about them, as though when you look at them they might just come out with a fascinating conversational topic. They probably won’t, but what if they did?

Another smaller offering here, I think the second one is my favourite. It reminds me a bit of those teenagers who take really close pictures of their eyes and then put it on facebook….tres cool….not…. However, in my opinion, an elephant can get away with it – Can you see all the ancient wisdom in the giant’s eyes?  😉 Your favs?
