Pepper Pirouettes

Hot little red peppers leaning against a tin foil backdrop balancing on their tips... doing pepper pirouettes!
The word 'Pirouette' comes from old French, 'pirouet'... spinning top.

The Pirouette is said to be the crowning glory of a ballet dancer and seems to be a transient ability that requires the utmost balance, body structure and form. It is considered one of the more challenging movements in dance training... and a great majority of dancers will say it takes major focus and constant rehearsal to attain.
Could be a metaphor for any sort of training in life.... practice, practice, practice!
