Picture Perfect - CONTRAPTIONS

When in Spain, last year, one of the places we went was to an olive oil museum.  Who knew there was such a thing?  Lol.  I sure didn't.  Anyway this contraption is an old olive press.

Picture Perfect - Freestyle Week #4 - Breaking Bread

Last year, on a trip to the Costa del Sol in Southern Spain, we did an overnight trip to Morocco.  While walking through the Kasbah, we came upon a bakery.  The women who lived within the Kasbah walls would bring their bread dough to the bakery and the baker would bake the bread.  In this shot you can see finished loaves of bread.  Upon our arrival, we were given samples of bread that had just come out of the oven.  So delicious!

Because this is a freestyle week, I am going to bend the rules a bit and also put up a few shots I took inside the bakery so you can get a feeling for the working conditions there.  Trust me when I tell you, it was hotter than h--- down there.
