Friday Foto Finder: Tomato

tomato plant

September, and the tomatoes are still green…

… so there’s little hope they’ll look like these some time:

 

Cherry tomatoes

The bought variety from Spain. I haven’t seen tomatoes from Germany in the shops at all.

Then you can use them for a lovely meal:

I couldn’t find an tomato story on librivox, but there is the

Tomato Culture: A PRACTICAL TREATISE ON THE TOMATO, ITS HISTORY, CHARACTERISTICS, PLANTING, FERTILIZATION, CULTIVATION IN FIELD, GARDEN, AND GREENHOUSE, HARVESTING, PACKING, STORING, MARKETING, INSECT ENEMIES AND DISEASES, WITH METHODS OF CONTROL AND REMEDIES, ETC., ETC. By WILL W. TRACY

which fits the topic.

Friday Foto Finder: Lighthouse

Lighthouse in Majorca

Lighthouse in Majorca

I grew up not far from a lighthouse that is very well-known in Germany, because it features in an advertisement for beer.

However, I’ve never been there for some reason. I spent a holiday hundreds of miles away and there cycled to this lovely old lighthouse in Majorca, though.

Oh, I searched LibriVox and found a book about Lighthouses (click on the image for the link):

Friday Foto Finder: Skyline

View over London from the top of the London Monument

This week’s topic is Skyline’. I don’t have any photo with a recognizable skyline of a city. However, there are a few buildings in the photo above which one might recognize if one knew the city.

 

Below is Frankfurt, viewed from The Ludwig tower quite far away (a good 30km), so all the known landmarks are missing.

Friday Foto Finder: Flock

A flock of sheep

Some colourful sheep for sale

This week’s subject is “Flock”. Now, sometimes there is a flock of sheep on the lawn opposite our house, but not right now. However, I pass a garden center  which has changing decorations. The pigs and sheep above are a fairly recent addition to their garden.

Friday Foto Finder: (No) Snow Globe

This week’s Friday Foto Finder’s topic is Snow Globe. Well, I don’t have a photo, or a snow globe I could take a photo of, so here’s something else instead:

The Adventure of the Snowing Globe

 

It’s a lovely story, which is part of  one of Librivox’s many Short Story Collections.

Now, it’s not yet the season for snow globes, which are usually associated with Christmas time, or at least with Winter, but then again you can often buy them as trinkets/gifts in souvenir shops.
