LAPC #182- Interesting Objects

For this photo challenge, Pattimoed, asks the participants to post images of interesting objects.

I was finding it difficult because I know that many photographers (who are a crazy lot like me) find beauty in everything. 

They spend hours together for a particular angle even try different positions and in the process disappoint the other family members.

Many times their hard disc storage space is exhausted because they refuse to delete the dejected photos. 

Ultimately beauty in the eyes of the beholder!! Is it not so?

One tequila, two tequila, three tequila, FLOOR!

Tequila
“Our tequila is so hot it makes them take off their clothes!!” Unknown

 No By Two… Or One By Two

One-by-two
Juice is sweeter when shared with good friends

It’s a funny phrase typically used in India. No other country in the world uses this phrase to my knowledge.

This phrase is typically heard at tea/coffee/soup/juice shops.

What does this phrase convey?

One By Two:

A person telling the shop owner, “Give us ‘one by two’ coffee.”

Here the item (cup of coffee) is divided into two roughly equal portions for sharing and invariably the shop owner has to provide an extra cup without charging.

Now the two friends can share the cup of coffee equally between themselves and pay only for one cup.

No By Two:

Here the shop owner (by displaying a notice as shown in the photo above) makes it clear that the sharing of one cup of coffee/juice is not allowed; neither he is willing to give an extra empty cup or glass.

 

THIS VIEW IS A-MAIZE-ING!

Sweet-Corn

ROASTED SWEETCORN WITH CHARCOAL

A typical roadside preparation in India.

Have you ever tasted it? In case you happen to visit India, don’t miss this item. 

It’s known as Bhutta and charcoal is used to roast it.

Indians just love it.

Tastes excellent as you savour it hot, in chilly weather.

Butter, salt or lemon can be added to enhance the taste

Very popular in hill areas.

Roadside eating is common during monsoon.

Said to be good for the eye, hair and skin.

Since it has a high carbohydrate content one must eat in moderation.

Thank you for your visit.

Take care, my friend.

Namaste 🙏🙏🙏

  1. Interesting concept on the “By-two” issue. With the price of Starbucks coffee here in the U.S., I’m surprised the practice hasn’t been assimilated here. >grin<

    I'll take one of those roasted sweet corn, please, extra butter and salt!

  2. Hi, Philo. I’d like to try the roasted corn. That looks delicious. I never heard the expression “one by two” before. Interesting! I love the different customs and expressions around the world. 😀. I’m glad you joined us.
