Community Photo Challenge ~ FOOD !
This is just a grab shot from last week before I knew about the FOOD Challenge. I didn't realize how easy food is to shoot. And it doesn't complain. But you have to act quickly. It will either melt or get eaten before you finish. This was hand held, using available light. Probably not the best way to do it, but I wuz hongry.

3 x 3 @ 72 dpi for the collage
This is the original photo of a porcelain jewelry box
that my Mom made years ago. She decided to give it to
her closest friend for her birthday last year. I set up the
shot and made a birthday card for her. After her friend
read and commented on the card, Mom then gave her
the gift-wrapped jewelry box. I cannot describe the
feelings in the room that day, but it gave me the warm fuzzies.Y

I didn't enter it in the Challenge because it was so old (Oct '08) and I may have used it before.
I used a Mini-Maglight for illumination and a 15 second exposure.
The official entry for the Still Life Challenge is below in the previous post.

This is my entry for Community Photo Challenge - Still Life
I just happen to have a still life that I shot the other day for my friend at the Olde Towne Bakery & Cafe. It's a new item on the menu and he needed a photo. I had to do it quickly, as the whipped cream was starting to run. I don't usually eat Hot Fudge Cake for breakfast, but I hated to see it go to waste. yum.
