Thai Limes

10 04 2018

A Lime ( มะนาว ) is a hybrid citrus fruit, which is typically round, lime green, 3–6 centimetres (1.2–2.4 in) in diameter, and contains acidic juice vesicles. The photo I took with my iPhone 6s Plus shows limes in our garden near Khon Kaen, Thailand, an essential ingredient for the delicious food my wife หนูพัศ cooks.

The health benefits of lime include weight loss, improved digestion, reduced respiratory and urinary disorders, relief from constipation, and treatment of scurvy, piles, peptic ulcer, gout, and gums. It also aids in skin care and eye care.

What about the botanical name of our limes?

I suggest Thai Limes, which may be vague, but which gets the point across. Because the semantics of what’s in the garden matters, as does the semantics of what goes into that gloriously fragrant pot of Tom Kha Gai on your stove or a spicy (เผ็ดร้อน) papaya salad (ส้มตำ).

Btw, it’s definitely not true that taking pictures of food is almost as much fun as eating it.

Thinking about the delicious Thai Food sometimes let you forget what your post is about. So back to my iThing.

With a perfect lighting my iPhone 6s Plus makes amazingly good photos. Just focus on the limes or leafs and zoom in.

The image sharpness remains quite good.

At the time I don’t think about purchasing a new iPhone. The 7/8/X might have better cameras but for me the imagination and remembrance linked with images are more important than their quality (if it’s not too bad).

Thanks for dropping by.
