Photo Friday -- 'Food'

I guess the theme is appropriate enough for the coming week.

My entry, however, is not so much.

Noodles at f/1.4

Other entries a Photo Friday.

SPC -- Upside Down #3


For now, I'm too tired to explain the 'through the viewfinder' look of this.

So, if you're interested, check Andrea's explanation. Even if you're not interested, I recommend checking it out, she does a really good job of explaining it.

I'm doing something similar, only the twin lens reflex camera I'm using (borrowed from a friend) has a 5x5 grid on the ground glass viewfinder.

Halloween 2008

Just a couple days late on this.

Mainly just a few pictures to share.

This was the year for recycling Halloween costumes.

It was also the year for multiple choice costumes:

Over the course of several Halloween parties this year, we had a:
a.) dog
b.) cat
c.) Dumbo
d.) Indian Princess
e.) witch
f.) All of the above


Halloween Puppy
This was his costume for last year. He tolerated keeping the hood on this year only slightly better than last year.


Halloween Dumbo
We inherited this costume from my cousin whose boys are a few years older than Harrison. Thanks, Kris!

Dumbo is thirsty!


Halloween Cat
We've had Hannah's cat accessories for several years now. Seems like she's been a cat at some point during the time of Halloween just about every single year!


Halloween Indian Princess
Christy made this costume (the dress at least -- the vest, headdress and purse were purchased) several years ago. We were shocked to discover that it still fit her!

This is what Hannah wore to her friend's Birthday/Halloween party on Halloween night. I tagged along as a chaperone, but it was her first traditional 'Halloween' party. They did the ol' bowl of eyeballs, bowl of brains/guts, etc, they bobbed for apples, went on a haunted hayride, etc. She had a good time.


We got the dress and hat from Goodwill for a buck fifty. This seemed to be the costume about which Hannah was least excited, but I was the most excited. I managed to get her to 'pose' for me for a couple of decent shots.
Halloween Witch
This is her 'mean/scary' face. :-)

Halloween Witch (bw)
...and I liked this one with her just peeking out from under the brim of her witch hat.


I hope everyone had a Happy Halloween!

SPC -- 'Upside Down' #1

It's a new month and a new theme at Self Portrait Challenge.

The theme: Upside Down

Seemed appropriate to have something a bit more challenging after October's 'gimme' theme.

Should be interesting.
