2020-10-26 alla Mona

I extended world pasta day a bit,... πŸ˜‰

Spaghettini alla Mona. Spaghettini, fresh basil, pine nuts, fresh peperoncini, a hint of garlic, freshly grated parmigiano reggiano and really, really good olive oil.
Sounds delicious and love the swirl of steam.

@caterina @randystreat @lisasavill @lilh Well those of you "seeing" that the steam is not steam, but smoke: you are of course right. As it is very difficult to get steam lit up, by a normal flash. (Physics, little burnt particles reflect the light much better than H2O). @lilh Concerning the question how I did it? I glued (honey) a tiny lil' bit of an incense stick, behind the fork and lit it. Then I fired light with an off camera flash directing it just behind the fork. And I covered up the in camera flash using just the light of the window to light up the spaghetti/fork. Thats it. The rest is all real, just the smoke is made up to add some "drama". Hope this helps.

@mona65 beautiful and thank you for the explanation. My incense sticks never quite burn as I would like them to.
