Baked Basil Fries ~ enjoying yourself is more than a life experience

by Maryam on October 3, 2011

Taking a break from the daily routine is essential .. However, when this break is spent in one of the most beautiful places on earth would probably be >> heaven .. or even more!

I always thought that nice pictures shouldn’t always represent nice seen! pictures sometimes can be misleading .. I believe, that is because pictures always focus on colors , position, type of lens , picture elements and how to bring all these together in an artificial way that pleases the eyes .. Now, all this changed in my perspective .. I started to believe that even the most beautiful pictures can’t bring the real beauty of that specific moment .. pictures will alway be a reminder of that beautiful moment which will last in the heart and soul forever .. pictures are limited; it can’t transfer the fresh air at that moment or the nice smell of the place or even the sounds of laughter that used to surround you!

I’ve learned that before taking each picture, I have to take a one  in my heart, and remember the good days in my mind, while wishing always for the good days to remain with  more joy and happiness ..

Hi Anna,
actually who doesn’t? I believe fries can be prepared with any dish and it can be served by itself and still looks great! thanks for the comment
