A Cup of Tea, Chocolate and a Herald Angel to Say

Hey, it’s your birthday!

Happy Birthday to my friend V, who tells me good stories and makes me laugh!  Enjoy your day. This angel is a music box.

Happy Birthday to You.

Happy Birthday to You.

A little iPhone shot of a still life I put together for your birthday.


Red Pears by Candlelight

This winter will be the winter of photography by candlelight. I mean you have to have a plan. Try something new. Challenge yourself. The early darkness seems a good opportunity to light candles and experiment with low light. Bought some red pears. They don’t look red in this photo but my goal is to not manipulate the images. Find the right white balance. Not going to poach these orbs in wine or make a pear tart. I’ll pack them in my lunch bag for school and slurp their refreshing juice at the end of my lunchtime – hurriedly before period 8 starts.
Will be doing some more candlelight images and dm looking for some human volunteers for portraits by candlelight, right in my dining room.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Contrast

Fire and Ice

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I’ve tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
I think I know enough of hate
To say that for destruction ice
Is also great
And would suffice.

 —Robert Frost

Fire and Ice. Well, a candle and some cubes. Contrast.
