Fruit on the Spine
The first step in the making of Queso de Tuna is the blooming of the flower of the Prickly Pear (Nopal) . . .

This image was taken by an Asahi Pentax 6 X 7 medium format film camera and Super-Multi-Coated Macro-Takumar/6X7 1:4/135mm lens mounted on a Asahi Pentax 6X7 #1 Extension Tube using Kodak Portra 160 film, the negative scanned by an Epson Perfection V600 and digitally rendered with Photoshop.

This hand-held shot (in bright sunlight) was tricky because of the shallow plane of focus, yet worked out okay in the end.

The stinky/sweet (Camembert) would likely be good bait to fish for tuna! What a sandwich!
