Boa noite Jorge!
Adoro figo seco!!!!!
Só que a aparência deles assim não fica lá muito apetitosa, ao menos na foto! Parecem larvas... sei lá o que, pelo menos no thumbnail... depois que se abre, melhora um pouquinho! rsrsrsrsrrs

Exactly. Good presentation of dry figs. They look as the caterpillars.

A provocative title that perfectly suits with this interesting shot. Excellenty isolated and cropped frame. Striking patterns and colors. I must admit although they are not looking appealing from this view, I love the taste of fig. Thanks for sharing. Best wishes,

The figs for sale looks delicious, Jorge.
In Israel they are sold exactly like this, with a wire bonding like a neckless...
Fine color like honey.

Jamais pensei que fossem figos secos. Imaginei algo salgado como linguiças ou outra coisa.

Figs are my favourite. Looks very juicy and delicious. They look like strings of beads. Nice colors and well framed.

I first thought that was "kokorec", a typical dish of the Balkans made of lamb intestines.
Both are delicious. :-)

Lovely sight. My grand mother used to dry figs on the flat roof of her house and then string them up like this.But the best figs are those picked ripe from the tree. Nice, compact image. Regards. Klaudio.

This resembles the bigger version of prayer beads! Lovely crop and closed up, so well detailed revealing the natural textures and colors. Exposure is great and this also makes an effective graphic-abstract picture but it's interesting slice of local culture. Well taken shot, TFS

What a great find! Excellent POV, which enhances the texture and patterns of the collars. TFS.

Fichi secchi e datteri.
Ma anche fichi secchi e noci dentro .
Un mangiare invernale molto calorico ...ma sano e curativo.
Da noi i pastori ....quando viaggiavano per nuova erba .
Geometria e food .

I like the idea of this photo. The result is interesting with a great perspective of the fruits. You are presenting a very well composed impression of the figs. My compliments!

What a great idea for a pattern shot. I like the little squiggles in some of the necklaces, they break the pattern to give it more interest. Beautiful colours and exposure. Tiny bit blurry on bottom, but mostly good DOF.
