I'm using today to catch up on everything that's happened over the weekend. Boy, I missed a lot!

But, first, I really want to say thank you to everyone that left wonderful comments, +1'ed, and shared yesterday's photo. That just made my day after a very long, tiring day! I really was just through the roof! And a special thank you to the judges who actually thought my work was worthy! Really, thank you all.

Anyway, so, above was my submission for "breakfast" to Chrysta Rae's Scavenger Hunt. Unfortunately, I forgot to include the milk. ;). This was my standard overhead shot on one of my white backgrounds. I used only natural light from the large windows in my living room. I did very little processing (as I'm not a fan of it). This is in contrast to yesterday's shot where I actually deleted parts of the fair from the bottom right (via Photoshop), burned in the swing ropes, and turned the entire thing into a black and white.

Many of my submissions this round were actually just done in my own living room (I simply ran out of time this month as many of my weekends were dedicated to a lot of social events). Although I submitted my photos 3 or 4 days before the deadline, I only had time to complete a little over half the items on the list. Some items, of course, were downright difficult!

Now, I'm off to curate. I'll eventually post photos from travels from yesterday and the month of July during some downtime this month. Things are beginning to calm down for me now that summer is coming to a close. :)
