Indeed.

As long as it doesn't try to eat my salad it isn't too rare.
Ah, so you're one of those "just pull its horns and wipe its hiney" guys?

I looked again. The illusion is a result of two factors in the picture. The angle of view was from below the pallet, so the corners of the pallet are not visible. The angle of the lighting resulted in reflection from the wrapping that looked near symmetrical, resulting in a sense of squareness.
The lighting that day was abysmal. It had been raining very heavily earlier, so bad ill advised motorists were stopping in the middle of the interstate, in lanes of travel.

That is how people get killed.

Anyway, I noticed a securement strap had come loose, so I stopped to re-secure it. I stopped on an exit ramp, opened up my conestoga, reset the straps, and then had an idea to make a couple quick photos of this unique load.

I was standing on the pavement when I made the shot, and the trailer deck is about waist high from the ground (it is a stepdeck).

So dull grey skies and late afternoon fading daylight made for a poor scene.

I grilled some burgers with the Weber last night but took no photos so it did not happen.

Therefore no calories ingested.
Yep, that's how I keep my weight down; I never take pictures of food.

Actually, I did post a picture of a meal back in January. Still struggling to lose the weight I put on.

I went back and reprocessed the photos from that day.

A couple different angles.

Standing up on the step.



A 3/4 view.



And I revisited the original shot.




All done with a K10D.

Clearly no need for a K3.

C'mon now. Jim's not that old!
Bronze age, maybe, but not Stone Age.

Nice job.
Stick with it. You might get the hang of this photography thing yet.

Pretty much, as far as steaks go. If it's stopped bleeding it's over done.

Oddly, I prefer burgers medium well or well done.

Mark, our friends in US will not understand your turn of phrase, "into touch". They just cannot help it. But we seem to understand their figures of speech.
Tim, civic duty and all I feel we need to enlighten them to our figures of speech!

Exam invigilator, or is that 'proctor'?

Here the powers that be have just decreed that medium rare or rare burgers are no longer allowed in restaurants because of the risk of food poisoning. Steak tartare therefore off the menu as well.

Well done Rupert. We have two cats but you're a bit far for us to take a third!

The first one has a reflection, probably of you, which makes it look a bit pointy.


Interesting load and story. Pity the reason you started the story was related to some shell fish which were undesirable to eat, and a vendor who clearly did not take their role as a supplier of victuals responsibly.


My belief is that food is rather tougher than the food standards suggest, but the problem is some low end businesses (as in those we would have described as scumy when I was a teenager) that do truly egregious things with food they supply to the public and also that there are many opportunities for serious infection or pollution to get into food.

Minced (ground for our US friends) meats should be well cooked because of the additional contamination opportunities afforded by the mincing (grinding) process.

See a couple of my recent posts, I concur. Trying to learn them a lesson.
