Stop Flashing Me!!!

One of the things I've been trying out a lot lately is using the natural or just the existing light when I'm taking pictures. I'm getting better at steadying my hand without using a tripod or flat surface to set the camera on.

This series is my "Ode to Pottery Barn":





I can see how the natural light in these makes such a huge difference. Everything is just a little softer... no real hard lines...


I think this picture is really cute. These toes belong to my brother's nieces and they insisted my sister paint their toes last time we saw them. I wish I had another picture of them as they were posing for this one... arms around each other, staring down at their toes...


I love the contrast of neon in the dark, and this has the reflection on the glass as well. This is the regionally-famous Dinosaur Barbecue, the best pulled pork in the North. A genuine honky-tonk where you can find bikers and businessmen sitting side by side on any given day, it's a great place for a sandwich, a beer, and some great music. No, they didn't pay me for this endorsement.... but that's an idea...

Do they serve real dinosaur meat there?

No, I'm sorry to say there is no dinosaur meat served... though sometimes the bones in the soup are a little large... hmmmm... this may require YOUR investigation skills, phoenix!!

Nice pics.
Those little piggy toes are adorable!
My dad is a big fan of neon. He has a music room with neon lights and signs in it. It looks very cool!

Have a nice week!
