city daily photo theme day for june - zest

this month's theme 
 was not an easy one to illustrate
as relating to new york city
i mean
 nyc is a zesty place
 in many respects 

a photo?
 that was tough
 i thought about the
 the word

 i googled

 the free merriam-webster dictionary defines it as:

lively excitement: a feeling of enjoyment and enthusiasm
a lively quality that increases enjoyment, excitement, or energy
small pieces of the skin of a lemon, orange, or lime that are used to flavor food

i chose to go with the first two
 i rifled through my photos
 it seemed pretty obvious to me
 the memorial day weekend street fair 
 both of the first two examples 
 i chose these photos
 i think
 pretty self explanatory 
and very zesty

the other participants interpretations this theme


  1. Absolutely AWESOME use for the word ZEST!! I would have just ended up with a picture of a bar of soap. bwahahahaha!!

  2. Nicely zesty! Here in Vancouver is a fair called the Pacific National Exhibition (PNE) and runs in the summers in August, (hence I've missed it for years and years) But I remember visiting every year as a child and winning plush toys, candy and little gifties. It's gone much more commercial since I was a child and the plush toys a lot less plusher, but I think I might get there this year since I'll be returning to C a little early form E. High excitement!

  3. A feast of colors and a very good choice for this theme day!

  4. Fabulous choice for the theme! I love all those colors.
