Bellissima foto! Non ne ho ancora trovata una da convertire in bianco e nero, uffa!

Ciao Marta. Messaggio ricevuto. Mio marito non e' un fan dei peperoni, soprattutto se piccanti, e quindi ci vado con calma. Pero' stasera penso che ne faro' un po' al forno, semplici. Vediamo se riesco anche a fotografarli. A me fa impazzire la varieta' di forme, colori e sapori.

Ciao Laura. Anche a me non e' stato facile all'inizio, in parte perche' abbiamo gli occhi abituati al colore. Quindi ti direi: lanciati, e poi pian piano vedrai che sara' piu' facile. Per esempio: hai provato una delle foto con le tue uova?


bellissima anche questa foto, Simona. (anche se il sedano rapa l'ho trovato favoloso)
Sono d'accordo con Laura, non è semplice. Tu pensi che venga bene invece in B&w non "dice" niente. :(
Tra altro non ho la funzione di B&w sulla mia digi e così ogni volta bisogna convertire.
Basta lamentele, Lauraaaaa buttati!!!! :-DDDD


Those peppers look real good. I like your idea of adding the pepper to your soup for a kick in flavor. Mmm! Very nice!


Bella fotografia! Amo il bianco e nero.
I used to photograph in black and white, develop and print the pictures myself. I still miss that time (and not only because it was in the USA).

I also miss the variety of peppers in the States, poblano pepper is one of them, or Ancho chiles. *sigh*
I searched far and low for Calabrian chili peppers in Venice, finally found them in a store that is going out of business (more and more of those old wonderful alimentari are being converted to more tourist directed shops *argh*).


I am already back home.
I shall, however, travel down to Florence soon. I could make a stop in Venice.
How long are you staying?



Look forward to see the dip you have made.


All shiny and sensuous. I'm so glad I didn't let an early prejudice against green bell peppers influence me for life. Look at what I would be missing. Poblanos, though not incendiary, have a mellow and distinctive flavor that I truly enjoy. Thanks, Simona, for another delightful BWW image.

Ciao Brii. Certamente non e' facile e sono d'accordo con te che una bella foto a colori non e' detto che poi sia ancora bella quando viene trasformate in b/n. In queste settimane, a forza di tentativi, sto cominciando a capire un pochino. Occorre provare, buttarsi ;)

Thanks, Paz.

Ciao Merisi. At the Rialto market earlier this week, they were selling chili peppers, though I don't know whether they are from Calabria. Interestingly enough, there were a couple of alimentari close to the place where I stayed this time: I was pleasantly surprised.

Ciao Ivy. The dip's recipe is in a post from last year. It is still one of my favorite dishes to offer as appetizer or bring to a dinner, provided I have the right peppers.

Ciao Susan. I agree with your choice of adjective: sensuous, indeed. You are more than welcome!
