weekly photo challenge: texture
These are piments d’espelette (a famous pepper from the Basque Country and, in particular, a village called Espelette). My sister took this photo while vacationing with our parents 2 or 3 years ago when they wandered into a place where they were sorting them.
I love the point of view this photo allows me. I feel as though I’m ready to dive into these piments d’espelette, and I wonder what I would feel. I imagine my body on fire in a pool of red peppers, just as my tongue might be, if I were to put one in my mouth.
