Indulgence

I have a confession to make. I recently went to a dinner gathering at my brother's place where I succumbed to the seduction of an evil chocolate cake. That's a sin I normally guard against quite diligently since I am borderline diabetic, but that evening, I just gave in to the temptation and allowed myself to indulge just a little bit. Well, as someone once said (you know who you are :), man cannot live on healthy food alone.

A gorgeous cake with dark and white chocolate that just melts away any resolve to not be tempted.

An image of my brain when I was eating the cake. OK, it's actually an abstract artistic image I made from a photo of some artificial flower arrangement at my brother's place. Just having some shooting fun after dinner.

This is another abstract image I made from a glass of carbonated white grape juice I had at the dinner. (That might actually count as the first sin I committed that evening :)

All original photos were taken with my trusty Moto G phone.

I would love to take a bite on your no.2, but being also borderline, I will contend myself with 3 or 4 crumbles, just to taste itsmile

😀 You just had to tempt me and make me drool didn't you? smile  The chocolate cake looks divine and I don't blame you for indulging. Your abstract on #3 is beautiful. Love hos the colors intertwine into each other. I would frame that one smile

Yup, think of it as payback for tempting me with your post on Brunneti's Pasticceria (https://www.photoblog.com/camellia/2019/12/01/traveling-down-under-day-2-melbourne-brunnetis-pasticceria/). Don't think I have forgotten. 😀

Watch your sugars! Diabetes is like a bad dog... keep him chained and he wont hurt you. Otherwise he will bite!  I see those bites in my practice. Ok enough scolding- the cake and images looked great!

Appreciate the scolding and reminder, Doc! 😊 Hopefully, I will manage to keep this bad dog chained up.
