So you posted an ad for Tang instead? You shoulda cropped the photo. :rolleyes:
Well, I guess the cropped version has been prepared to solve the Close-packing picture.

This type of cropping counts as "digitally altered" and is definitely against the context contest rules.

It was supposed to be a subliminal public service announcement; "Vitamin C is important to your health."

The hurricanes and fires this year deleted my orange crop at the supermarket this summer, and I had to get by, with some "sciencey" stuff NASA invented, some years back.

Much, much better. From wikipedia,
"Börek (Turkish pronunciation: [bøˈɾekʲ]; also burek and other variants) is a family of baked filled pastries made of a thin flaky dough known as phyllo (or yufka), of Anatolian origins and also found in the cuisines of the Balkans, Levant, Mediterranean, and other countries in Eastern Europe and Western Asia. A börek may be prepared in a large pan and cut into portions after baking, or as individual pastries. The top of the börek is often sprinkled with sesame seeds."
Snacks are snacks.

We are far from B, but I do have picture of burek, taken in Croatia.

I didn't realize you could still get Tang. I remember us having it when I was a kid. They used to have commercials on TV with astronauts.

Rocket. I took this at Wallops Island in the late 1960' when I was working for NASA. I was very proud of myself for having caught more than just the smoke trail. These little devils shoot up out of the tower going really fast.

That is an awesome picture of a rocket launch, especially considering the equipment used to capture the photo. Today's photographers could take rapid shots and pick the one they like (not having to worry about film costs. Speaking of that, I saw that Polaroid instant cameras are coming back. It costs $2 per picture though. I remember having one of those when I was a teenager. It was pretty fun.

Continuing the citrus theme. Before N comes M for Mandarins.

Edit: If you look closely you will find that one wedge is missing from the peeled mandarin. I wonder who can solve this disappearance mystery ...
