Sunday - Lite Lunch

As the days are getting hotter, I always like to find things that are good, yet lite, for lunch. One of my favorite lunches (or even supper for that matter), is mozzarella with tomatoes, fresh basil, Balsamic vinegar, olive oil, onions, and black pepper. And please don't forget a crusty baked roll (this one is a Bolillo roll, which is very common here in the Southwest).

I enjoy using my slate plate; after I photographed this light lunch, I was able to eat off that plate. What are your favorite light lunches? Please share, maybe I can find something new to try for the summer months.

Thank you for stopping by today - until next time, enjoy a light lunch.

Sunday - Dappled Light

This year I have been photographing like it goes out of fashion tomorrow. No, seriously, I have taken already over 700 images in first 7 weeks. The projects that I am involved in keep my going; they help me think to improve my photography on so many levels. Mostly I am photographing just for myself, just to see how far I can push myself.

One doesn’t stop seeing. One doesn’t stop framing. It doesn’t turn off and turn on. It’s on all the time.
— Annie Leibovitz

I follow several photographers closely; one of favorite ones is Nadeen Flynn. Her work inspires me so much, and I study all of her images. I am drawn to her work because of her incredible use of light and her still life styling. If you are not familiar with Nadeen's work, I encourage you to check out her website. She not only shares her work, but also shares some tutorials that have been very helpful to me.

So today as I was photographing for our Sunday Project, I thought about mostly light, but also adding some interest with dabbled light and textures in my background. Here is what I came up with:

Lensbaby Velvet 56 - SS 400 - f5.6 - ISO 400

The above image was taken for the Sunday Project Group - 52 Sundays - one Sunday at a time.

Thank you for stopping by today...until next time, play with some interesting light and textures.
