      Great picture; strong color combo; looks like a rosewood bowl, too? We use lemons to clean with; by combining with baking soda and instant suds; good for those that work in a fish market to; remember Susan Sarandon in the movie Atlantic City; anyway, thank you for your interest in my photo'dream' and comment (;~)>
