    At first glance, the selection of food dishes and curries has the appearance of an artist’s ingredients.

      Thank you, yes that certainly attracted me. And the arrangement (including the “wooden spoon”) that gives the picture a staged construction.

    It’s a great photo and I had to do a ‘double take’ to check it was not a painting!

    1. Zettl Fine Arts avatar

      Thanks so much! Yes, it has much of a painting and though it is just a simple kitchen photo it tells a story to me.

        Yes, I think the shades are very good indeed!

    There is a continental feel to the placement of the pots and utensils which, looking at the contents, creates an unusual energy.

      Thank you! I see it the same way!

    Great photo. I know a lot of Sri Lankan people. One thing I really love is their food. Don’t hold the chilli! They also love to sing and dance!

      Thank you! Yes, definitely! We took a tour with a private driver and he did a great job. We had the chance to explore a bit off the beaten tracks. So sad that Sri Lanka faces such severe problems now.

        Sadly, the problems have never really gone away. One of my staff members when I worked in Melbourne would bring me home-cooked Sri Lankan food. I really miss that now I am living in the country!

        Unfortunately, yes. We had the honor of being guests at a wedding, the bride Sinhalese, the man Tamil. A few years ago that would have been unthinkable. But the further north you go, the more visible the old wounds become. The government lacks money and the Covid crisis has made things worse.

        I was surprised with my volunteers at the strong feelings they had against the Tamils.

        At least there are improvements between the two ethnic groups. But what is (was?) completely unthinkable for them both is a marriage with Muslims.

    That looks so good….

      Thank you! And the “restaurant”, one could call the design minimalistic, all in wood, simple and still very stylish. Just without the intention of being stylish.

    Dieses Foto muss für einen Maler inspirierend sein, allein die Farben!!! Man möchte den Pinsel eintauchen und malen… so sehe ich es, lächel…
    Liebe Grüße,

    1. Zettl Fine Arts avatar

      Danke! Ja sehr malerisch, eine sehr natürliche Ausstrahlung.

    the aroma so easy to conjure up…

    1. Zettl Fine Arts avatar

      Yes absolutely. I like to cook curries myself and value good spices and ingredients, but it always tastes different.

    Describing is in detail is interesting and amazing.Keep it up.

    1. Zettl Fine Arts avatar

      Thank you! This WordlessWednesday thing is about letting your photo speak for itself. There would be a lot I would have to tell about that “restaurant”.

      1. tariqwritesdaily avatar
