It started with a trivia question from a podcast (Good Job, Brain!) I was listening to on the way home: what are the only three ingredients in shortbread? “Butter, flour and salt,” I thought, and surprisingly, I was right. (Most people do not realize that this wonderful cookie is so simple and does not contain water or eggs.) So I decided to make some shortbread over Thanksgiving, but to go one better and dip them in chocolate, too. Then I decided, “Why not photograph them?” and that lead to doing a few macros…some at home, others at a local mall. By the end, macro photography turned into being the little ball of snow rolling down the mountain: it just grew and grew into more and more!
Before viewing the photographs, I would also like to invite you to visit the poetry blog, the Book of Pain. As always, special thanks to my dearest Lyn, who does most of the hard part: the photo selections. Thank you for dropping by the Book of Bokeh.
Lyn had bought some mums for a Thanksgiving Celebration hosted by the Greater Putnam Interfaith Council and I knew I had to take a few shots of them…
