City Daily Photo Theme Day - "Zest!"



"Zest!"


Taken in the window of Galeries Lafayette, this grater would be fine for a citrus zest but not shaped well for larger fruits and vegetables.  I wish that I had bought one for my kitchen wall.


In observance of Theme Day for the City Daily Photo blogs (a different theme on the first day of every month), there is a double entendre with this photo:  First is the obvious function of this grater for making zest; second, my heart beats faster when it sees the Eiffel Tower design... zest!


Click here to see the many interpretations on this month's theme 
by photographers from around the world.

I also need to return to Paris to get one of these. Meanwhile, it's perfect for the theme no matter how you define it!

I want one of these, too! You have a two-fee selection for zest. How clever.

Even if it were never used, that would certainly add some "zest" to a kitchen.

Hi Genie,

Love your take on the word Zest
and yes, I am like you just seeing the Eiffel tower makes my heart beat faster. Would like one for my kitchen too.
Happy new week
