Some of you journalists out there have probably heard the term mug shot a few times right?! Gerry used to hate shooting "mugs" when he worked for the newspaper. Well, I got a new camera for Christmas so I might be posting a ridiculous amount of photos for awhile! Here is a mug that I got for Christmas, cute isn't it?
I have a macro lens, oh how I love a macro lens!!!
Day after Christmas breakfast, I sat down and took one bite and realized how pretty this looked so I ran a grabbed my new camera. I may be doing a lot of that. It has a setting just for food shots. I love that! I am sooooo sick of food right now, though. I really think that I am in a sugar coma :)
I asked for one of these mugs for Christmas and ended up with the whole set. I really wanted it to study the shape, I was interested in this very round body. These are at my favorite store, Anthropologie, where I only go in and look at the merchandising, can't afford to buy most anything they sell! I know I should have gotten mugs from potters, but I tend to buy brown mugs for myself and I would have never bought these, so they made a nice gift to get. Plus they are fun in the morning to wake up to. Sometimes you just have to have a little color. There are still lots of potter's mugs on my list of things to get this year. I mostly sell pottery to buy other pottery, is that messed up? Maybe............
The mugs are cute inside as well. I just realized the camera has a date stamp, yep, there it is, sorry. Note to self, turn it off! I used to hate getting prints back with that stamp on them.Remember when you put your film cassettes in those yellow bags, and went back a week later to get them, and most of them looked like crap and you got double prints of crappy photos?God bless digital photography for those of us that aren't professionals. Well, God bless it for the professionals too, Gerry used to smell like photo chemicals all the time and ruined all of his work clothes. Plus, I spent hours waiting around in the darkroom while prints were made so we could finally go to dinner. Although, it was pretty cool to watch him make black and white prints. Oh, sorry I digress! Hope everyone had a good Christmas, I am ready to come out of the seasonal fog and get back to making something! Can you tell that I ate an entire chocolate orange ball today? You know, the one that you smash on the table and it breaks into wedges? Do you like those? I love them, but only get them at Christmas. Wesley hides hers and eats like one piece a week. I set mine on the counter and eat a wedge every time I walk by it! yummmmmm!
Well, I had a nice video of Susan Filley to show you but after waiting for blogger for over three hours to down load it, I gave up. I'll try again later, guess everyone is posting Santa videos or something.
