Weekly Photo Challenge: Indulge

Whenever we visit La King’s Confectionery I allow myself to indulge without guilt or concern of calorie consumption…I yield to the desires and whims of my inner child..I take unrestrained pleasure in the total experience…especially to an excessive degree….all from behind the lens of my camera. Focus, zoom, snap…one sweet confectionery picture after another.  Snap…indulge…saltwater taffy, snap…indulge…jelly fruit slices, snap…indulge…peanut butter fudge, snap…indulge…caramel clusters, snap..indulge….hand dipped ice cream cones, snap…indulge!!!

Follow me to La King’s…for an incredibly indulgent experience!!!

These pictures were taken at La King’s Confectionery located on Galveston Island.  The King family began making “old world” style candy in 1927.  In 1976  the King family opened up La King’s Confectionery on the historic Galveston Strand.

    • Your post was very moving and thought provoking…we donate money through our church to help dig water wells in India. Water is necessary to sustain life and it’s something many people don’t give a second thought, they turn on the faucet and they have water…thanks for stopping by.

    Love it! Consuming calories from behind the lens of a camera!

    • PIP, it’s so much safer that way…I can’t manage to eat and snap pictures at the same time. It’s a good thing I enjoy taking the pictures almost as much as enjoy the sweets. Thanks for the link up..

  19. Now I’m going to relapse. I have a sweet tooth and I love chocolates, desserts and yes, the mouthwatering ice cream. I’m trying to cut down my calories but today, I’ll make an exception. I’m heading to the pantry now for my favorite dark, irresistible truffle chocolates. Beautiful and fun post….wonderful images….very tempting too. Have a blessed day!
