1105 - Chlorophyll stripes
Extreme close-up of a spider plant, with the leaf back-lit by a bounce flash. If you look closely, you can see the cell walls.

1120 - Colorful Hair Salon
Emptying the wash water before opening up a rather curiously decorated hair salon.
I wonder, are the famous portraits supposed to be hair styling models or suggestions? "I'll have the Sitting Bull, please."

1121 - Cantonese Steamed Fish
Ever since I was a kid, one of my favorite dishes.
The whole fish (in this case, Rock Cod, but often catfish) is steamed lightly, cilantro, ginger, and green onions are laid over it, and then a hot oil and soy mixture is poured over the top to finish cooking and served immediately.

1129 - Llanto por El Gato Rey
A las tres de la tarde.
Eran las tres en punto de la tarde...
Cogí su pata mientras el último súspiro de la vida le escapaba en el hospital. Fue uno de los momentos más difíciles de mi vida.
The little furry king will sit no longer on his throne and grumble at the frivolity around him.
I couldn't really think of any better way to express today than simply empty blackness.
1124 - Serge and his Smoker
Justifiably proud of his smoker, and the delicious brisket inside.

1126 - ModCloth Modeling Shot
ModCloth, in the internet fashion business, lets their employees dress up for photo-shoots occasionally, partly as a way to showcase their wares and partially to let the women that work there have an excuse to play around with clothing and makeup.

1130 - Weeping Balloons
It felt like the world was quietly weeping for the Maxcat. The sky was grey, and even the rain seemed to have a misting, gloomy quality.
