color blocking and bell peppers

Oh hai! Yes, you're quite right: I'm a flamingo.
As I really enjoyed the color blocking of my outfit today (sea foam/navy), I decided I would attempt a costume post. This proved a challenging endeavor in that I didn't have some poor soul to beg cajole subject to taking my picture. Therefore, I had to set it on the dresser and utilize the self timer. It is only for humor that I post one of these shots... lucky you. (It's also SUPER grainy because I had it set to 6400 ISO. Which, if you don't know, is much more grainy than ISO 400, for example.) In much better news, I finally got the chance to make a recipe I had been eying for a while over on smitten kitchen. After grocery shopping this evening, I procured my first capers and enough peppers to make the recipe in question. 

My camera battery petered out soon into the endeavor, so I took a couple of after shots with the iPhone instead. I used the randomize setting on the Hipstamatic app instead of picking the lens, film and flash. I'm impressed with my willingness to let go, although I don't know that they turned out quite the way I had hoped. Also, the peppers need to marinate overnight, so I can't say for sure that it's a successful attempt, but I'm 90% positive it'll make my work day lunch much better tomorrow. This is the third recipe I've tried from smitten kitchen (see also this and that). If you haven't checked her out, you definitely should, if just for the pictures.
