St. Joseph’s Zeppole, a cream or custard filled pastry, is the best part of this Italian holiday.  I’ve made them but would much rather buy them at a pastry shop or have this fresh, tasty, deep fried dessert after a delicious dinner at Torna a Sorrento Restaurant in Elizabeth, NJ.

St. Joseph’s Zeppole are available before the holiday but after the 19th you’ll have to wait until next year.

P.S. Don’t forget a hot caffè macchiato to complete the experience.

More Lights

Posted in Digital Image, July 4th, Lights, Washington DC with tags , , , , , on July 3, 2012 by melabeemiller

Fireworks are everywhere on the 4th of July. I found them early this year in an exhibit in Washington DC at the Hirshhorn Museum. Well, it wasn’t periodic bursts of light but startling unexpected light. This light came from the artwork which glowed, changed the color of my clothes, mixed in unpredictable ways and kept me totally off kilter.  I hope my photos entice you to visit this fascinating exhibit called SUPRASENSORIAL which is at the Hirshhorn until August 12. Let me know what you think.

Zoo Lights

Let’s take a break from Florence and go to the zoo for the holidays.  It’s a short trip to Washington DC and  The National Zoo where we can see a sparkling light show that is quite wonderful.  The zoo is free and the lights will be on until January 1st.

All my best wishes for the holidays and a healthy and prosperous New Year.

A Fiery Post

This is a a fun blog post for me.  I love fireworks and this Fourth of July I saw two fireworks shows.   I’ve shot them before but the images never come out quite like this.

After admiring the one above, I couldn’t help but think that it reminded me of something that I had shot before. Then it struck me-a protea flower!
