I remember eating these as a kid, so I know they’ve been around for a while. I was curious, so I Googled Tootsie Pops and found the following on Wikipedia…
Tootsie Pops are hard candy lollipops filled with chocolate-flavored chewy Tootsie Roll. They were invented in 1930 by Lukas R. “Luke” Weisgram, an employee of The Sweets Company of America. At an office meeting employees were asked to share any ideas for new candies. Mr. Weisgram had been thinking beforehand. Just the other day, Clara, his daughter, had shared a lick of her lollipop, at the same time, Weisgram had a Tootsie Roll in his mouth. He thought about how good it tasted and up popped an idea. The board loved his idea and began to plan for the creation of this new candy.
I shot this using available window light. I didn’t capture all of the flavors, seems my family likes the orange pops the best. 🙂
This is a close up of one of the candle light bulbs in our kitchen chandelier. I didn’t have a lot of time today for photos, so I was scrambling around the house looking for my shot. The light was coming in through our kitchen window providing a filtered back light, the grass provided a nice gradient background. I like the effect the back lighting has on the glass lamp shade and the bulb, creating silhouette with the fine filament.
I have passed the halfway mark, actually passed it a couple of days ago without taking notice. I have learned a lot with this photo a day challenge. One of my goals was to take more pictures, because that is really the way to improve, practice, practice, practice. Something else has happened along the way that I had not anticipated. I really did not expect to have followers, and that is a pleasant surprise for me. This blog has become a conversation piece when I see my friends. I really appreciate the encouragement and feedback I have received, and the “Likes” really are appreciated. I feel like I am part of a growing community of fellow WordPress bloggers, a community that I never knew existed.
