Colorful Effervescence

Did you know there’s a substantial difference among tonic water, club soda, and sparkling water?  It pretty much boils down to a lack or abundance of sodium bicarbonate and/or high fructose corn syrup.

However, one thing that all 3 of the aforementioned beverages have in common is a LOT of bubbles.

My girlfriend showed me a tutorial video, presented and narrated by this guy –> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KqBVWlrHqG8  (You wish you had hair like that.)  You can also check out the people he works with here–>  ppsop.com/instructors.aspx

I got pretty stoked about the prospect and went to the local scrap-booking store to pick up a wide array of gaudy colorful backdrops (the gaudiness is subdued due to the shallow depth of field).  So, while I’m fairly pleased with the results, there are certainly some tweaks left to be made.

A re-do to follow!

Blatant Filler Post

Hey guys –

Sorry I haven’t gotten a post up in the last few days.  Things got crazy busy over the weekend and they pretty much required my full attention.  BUT DON’T FRET!  As soon as a spare hour or dozen pop up this week, I’ll have some super-awesome stuff to share.

For now, let us dwell on the unseasonably favorable weather we’ve been having.  Even though things have dialed back to a more spring-like temperature (which is good) I still have the upcoming summer right on the forefront of my mind.  Many people think of things like picnics, camping, or family trips.

I love food.

Specifically I like to cook.  A lot.  Grilling too.  OK, not “too.”  If I had my say, almost all of my food would be grilled.  Except soup.  That get’s tricky.

But vegetables.  Grilled vegetables are the way to go in the summer time.  In that regard, I present you with the vision of summer dancing in my head.  And yes – I grilled all these myself.  But not on a grill… on an electric stove.  I did, however eat that garlic.  It was fantastic.

I wish this picture was “click and smell.”
