I've had a lot of different types of Taco Salad through many church potlucks. And it's been very interesting to compare the Taco Salads from the other families that have migrated from Texas to Tennessee. It seems that we were the only family that would have a warm salad overall. I'm partial to this version of taco salad since this is what we grew up with.
There's plenty of optional ingredients that can be added at the end as you serve your taco salad, like sliced black olives, avocado, etc.

Well, it's been a while, hasn't it. It's been a rough season to be sure. I had thought to make a long rambling post about how I want to write again. How I want to have a life again. How I'm pissed all the time and have started hating 'people' again (please note that I hate 'people', if you're reading this, you're a person and not people so it doesn't apply to you).
But then it's the afternoon. There's too many distractions. I like to write in the morning, when it's quiet. When people aren't bothering me all the time. I can't even hold a cohesive train of thought together to write about currently. At least not anything worth reading. So in the vein of me not writing and no one wanting to read what I need to write (I guess that's what a diary's for anyway...), I give you pictures instead.
They're not great. I was just futzing around with my camera trying to see what could be done with the macro setting. Mostly just junk on the back porch. You know how back porches are, they collect junk.
The Wood's Dark Heart
So we'll start with this one, "The Wood's Dark Heart". It looks intriguing enough. This is one of those accidental shots. You know, the ones that at first glance you see a crappy picture that the majority of it is out of focus, or there's just too much noise in it. That's what this was.
There is a sleeve of bark from a tree (I have no idea what kind of tree) sitting on a cabinet/table on the porch. I had wanted to get a couple of odd perspective shots. This is what happened when I got more of the interior of the bark than the exterior. I honestly have no idea what this is, maybe some moss/fungus, but it doesn't really matter. I saw this one little bit in the photo and that was it. I needed to make it all of the shot. It looked kinda' like an ultrasound of an alien or something. At any rate, it was a cool found/accidental shot.
Follow through to see the original pic that it came from...
