In the Orient they refer to this as brain food. I didn't like it when I was a kid, that is why I am the way I am LOL. Terrific close up Pam, the B&W is ideal for this still life. #1303353

LOL! I'm pretty sure it works, too -- I love garlic and I've never yet been chased by a vampire! ;-) Wonderful capture that really works in B&W, Pamela! #8871869
