Weekly Photo Challenge: Optimistic

This week’s photo challenge is Optimistic.

How do you fuel the fires of optimism?

In between my son’s water polo matches, we were on a quest for Pho. It was a rainy day and my son was hungry. It was a perfect meal for a cold, wet day. We found it. 

Here’s mine. Size small with extra wontons.


Here’s my son’s Pho. Size Extra Large with all the extras. He took them all, mine included.


I begged my son to take this picture. You can see just how much bigger his soup is. He could barely hold it together, he was so hungry. He got extra wontons and extra noodles.


Did we finish? Nope. Not even close. But…we were so optimistic.

  1. I first read this as a potato challenge, and I was like, cool!
    Turned out to be quite different than expected.
    I too have had eyes bigger than my stomach. I feel SO hungry but it turns out my tummy can only hold so much!

  2. That looks so good! I don’t think I would have any trouble finishing it! Beautiful photos – they look really professional.

    And I love your new blog look! Your mermaid looks nice in blue! 🙂


    1. It was good, Kelly. Hit the spot. I thought I could finish it, too, but it didn’t happen. Oh, thanks so much. I like taking photos and just do my best. 🙂
      Yes, it’s a new look. My mermaid is underwater now. Can you tell? She just decided to go do that. I couldn’t stop her.

    1. Yay! Thanks for the compliments of my son’s artistry. I like this shot, too. Great capturing of the sizes of the bowls…otherwise it’s really not clear. Look, he doesn’t even try! Maybe he’s a natural or takes his best photos on an empty stomach. 🙂 Thanks, Reinhold. Smiles

    1. Oh, yeah? How funny! My post is cosmic. Pho is a Vietnamese soup usually with beef such as flank steak or rare beef (common, but I don’t usually order this, but my son does!) and rice noodles. Then you can add the bean sprouts, jalapeno, etc. It’s very tasty! As soon as my computer works, I’ll had a link about Pho. That’s a good idea. I think it’s pronounced like Fuh – not like it looks. – as in phenomenal! I’m not sure how you’re saying it. 🙂


    1. It was so good, Michelle. It hit the spot on a cold, rainy day. Pho is a Vietnamese soup with rice noodles and thin pieces of beef or chicken. Delicious! I love wonton soup, too. Another favorite. I gave it my best but couldn’t finish, but was happy trying!

    1. Pho is a Vietnamese noodle soup with thin slices of beef or chicken. Then you add bean sprouts, etc. I had trouble with the chopsticks. I used chopsticks, soup spoon AND a fork! I managed, Tom. I was optimistic I’d finish, but of course, no matter it what, it was yummy!
