Coke Afloat

Okay.  So it’s really a Coke Float, not a Coke Afloat.  And okay. So, this is really more like an ice cream soda than a float.  But these challenges are sort of short notice.  And for anyone now saying, “Huh?”, try this link.

Always remember to give thanks to the birds . . . before you steal their food.

Weekly Photo Challenge – Bird Bath Blur (5) – Photography

This blur also works for large dog baths.  Just be sure your camera is water proof or, better yet, borrow someone else’s.

Weekly Photo Challenge – Back End Blur (4) – Photography

04/08/2015

If you find the secret settings that control split shutter speed mode in your camera, making the left side of the frame fire at 1/500 sec (or faster) and the right side of the frame at 1/100 sec (or slower), you can achieve back end blur like this.  Wait a minute.  “Is that the same model from yesterday?”  Oh.  Strike out the first sentence.  Never mind.

Weekly Photo Challenge – Cheap Model Blur (2) – Photography

04/07/2015

This is what happens when you try to save 5 peanuts on the model agency fee.  It’s the, “OMG! – What do I do now?” blur.

Trader Joe’s Goat’s Milk Gouda Cheese – Food Review

Goat Milk Gouda - Polder Blanc - Trader Joe's

Goat Milk Gouda – Polder Blanc – Trader Joe’s

This is a rather nice medium soft cheese with a little bit of tang to the taste (TTTT).  It’s not the same kind of tang as an aged Gouda, nor is it as difficult to cut.  I’m going to assume this tang comes from the goat’s milk.

Mario Collina Prosecco – DOC – Wine Review – ALDI

Prosecco - DOC - Mario Collina - ALDI

Prosecco – DOC – Mario Collina – ALDI

The first surprise for this wine is the screw cap.  The screw cap is most likely there as a little insurance for the extra pressure in the bottle.   This is a mildly carbonated wine – bubbly.  As an aside, despite everything you may have heard, there’s nothing wrong with a screw cap on a wine bottle.  They’re just not as sexy as a cork.

Weekly Photo Challenge – Blur (1) – Photography

04/07/2015

No fancy prose this week.  I actually could’ve used last week’s image again, it was a ghostly blur.  But as others have pointed out, we photographers produce a whole bunch of “creatively” blurred images that work with this challenge.  So here’s the first type of blur from me – Almost Blur.

When you’re almost in the right place, at the right time, with the right camera, right lens, right shutter speed, right ISO, right aperture and right focus – this happens.  If only I had been on the other side of the small trees.  Almost . . .
