Weekly Photo Challenge – Ephemeral – Photography

03/28/2015

On cold wintry night when wind answers wolf’s howl, while lights flicker like fleeting fire flames, and barren branches cast eerie movement on frosted windows until fearful moon hides behind darkened cloud, with glass of Amontillado as last pixels fade, erasing words Vincent ushered from Poet’s beating heart, soon to be seen . . . nevermore, ephemeral souls departed, move cold draft on face and for digital sensors, leave trace.

This one doesn’t work for me.  The dark chocolate is excellent and totally hides the chili until about a minute later when the heat from the chili starts to warm the throat building up over the next two or three minutes to a low burn and mild chili taste.   My preference would’ve been that the chocolate taste linger.  While chocolate and chilies may work in a mole sauce, it’s not a combination that works for me in this chocolate bar.

Okay.  It was my fault.  I should have bought the second battery for the DSLR.  Time for a pinch hitter then.  “You, 8 years old ‘advanced’ point and shoot 5 mp, get off the bench and knock one over the fence for me.”

Yes it was wet.

The first taste is sort of tannic, fruity and watery at the same time.  All in all, it’s not a taste that’s impressive.  Neither is it a taste that’s abusive.
