While in Los Angeles this week I'm staying with my girlfriend Wendy whom I've known since I was 14. And as long as I've known her she has been a lover of salt. I mean really loves salt - when we were teenagers I use to tease her about the only thing she didn't salt - ice cream! Lucky for me, this week, I get to explore the plethora of salt varieties adorning her cupboard. This image of natural coarse salt comes from the Sea of Cortez.
