Eggs Florentine, pancakes with maple syrup, cheese, etc., prepared by our daughter-in-law and son. And of course coffee.

…that looks very inviting, Marilyn! :) You captured so well the cups of hot coffee and pancake, that I feel, I had only just step into the picture and I could take part! Great! :) :)

Best wishes, May

Thanks Bruce, bartowian, Sergej, Jacques, Rich, and May. I'm sure we could have made room, and there was lots of food.

When I headed in for the meal, the sight of the steaming coffee against the sunlight stopped me in my tracks. I told everybody to wait as I grabbed my camera from the living room, and I took just one (bracketed) shot. I knew that the family wasn't willing to wait around while I experimented with the composition. We all wanted to eat!

Hi Marilyn, is this special or typical ? I am very corious. The steam is captured great.



Marilyn Whiteley on December 28, 2007

Thanks, Carsten. Although the setting is informal and typical, the selection of food is wider and special, for the holiday.

Greetings, Marilyn

Great still life, Marilyn. Great depth, and oh so inviting. Glad your holidays were fun.


Marilyn Whiteley on December 29, 2007

Thanks, Hank. It's an illustration of why one should never be more than a few seconds away from one's camera: the hungry gang wouldn't have waited very long!

...sometimes even that doesn't help, Marilyn. I've parked the camera next to the toaster, yet I still frequently forget about taking a snapshot before my plate is (near) empty. And when I suggest that others should refrain from eating because I want to arrange the food and snap a picture, they can get outright hostile. You guys simply have no idea the trouble I go to (for you)... ;-)
