I can be a foodie

Foodie-1

I’ve been bitten by the baking bug… it was bound to happen given my close approximation to our very own cupcake princess.   Over breakfast and surfing through FB, I came across a yummy photo of what looked like a blueberry crisp. Just so happens I have some blueberries, other berries too, but honestly, they were not purchased for eating – their sole purpose for being in this house was to use in an upcoming photo club Photo Quest assignment, and then only eating if they didn’t go bad first.

This is actually a gluten-free recipe, but since me and gluten have never had an issue , I improvised just a bit… a lot like I do with my photography… So, here’s the link to the original recipe http://www.eastewart.com/recipes-and-nutrition/oatmeal-chia-berry-crisp/ and my finished yummy desert.

Double Duty

Finally making some time for … me.   It feels so good to be working on some photos.

KK Pop Edition

Linking up, above, with KK’s Texture Tuesday ~ the POP edition ~ with the help of KK2 ( one of my all time favorites!), beached, and robins egg.  I’m also catching up on my 52×52.  Ugg … backing up all the way to Week 5:  Fruit (how did I get so behind).   I was 99% sure, but since I don’t know anyone that eats a lemon like they do an orange, I figured I should double check.  Sure enough, it really is a fruit…

With a little help from some friends at the Zoo, here are Week 6: From a low angle; Week 7: Eyes; Week 8: a bad habit; and Week 9: Childhood memory.  Can you match up the photo with the week?zoopendous dayGive up?  … I’ll give you some hints.  Week 6:  They’re really tall and I am really short.  Week 7:  A beautiful gaze.  Week 8:  Sleeping on the job.  Week 9: What kid doesn’t like playing on the monkey bars 😉

Til next time,

…WEAR RED

I had a little plaque around here somewhere with that saying on it.  It used to hang on the door that opened to the red room (what else 😉 ) that used to be the “photo suite”.  However, I learned (the hard way) that a red room is not very conducive to optimal lighting for photography despite having the best window in the house for natural light.  The red room is now my son’s room.  Someday, it will return to being the photo suite … with a new coat of paint.  Where was all this leading… Oh yea, RED!  Just so happens to be my favorite color and this week’s 52×52.  The only hard part about this week’s challenge was actually deciding on what to photograph…there’s something red everywhere!

Strawberry fields forever…

strawberry-bowlMy favorite fruit, so happens it’s red.  Coincidence?

strawberry_painterlystrawberry-lineupstrawberry-colorboardI found so many things red to photograph that I haven’t even had a chance to go through them all.  Stay tuned for RED Part II.

’til next time,
