Been A While

Well, it sure has been a while since my last post.  Thought I should  write one before a  year is up.

What lead me to finally write a post was "procrastination".  Isn't it a terrible trait to have.  One fights it constantly.  Procrastination, for me, reared its ugly head over this weekend.  I have been involved, for several years, in photographing cakes and cupcakes for a forthcoming cookbook.  I usually download each session once the shoot is completed.

Well, over the last YEAR I accumulated five downloads.  For the past two days, and for countless hours, I have been downloading and processing a multitude of shots.  You can be assured that this won't happen in the future!

On the brighter side, I was pleased with most of the photographs.  Here are a few I especially liked from the past year.  Not sure exactly what each is, but if anyone is interested, I sure can contact the "baker"!

Now I think I'll kick back and enjoy a cup of tea!
