Thanks - I hope I gave everyone as big a laugh as I had with the series. Also, that someone will get an idea and shoot something that's much better than what I came up with.

LOL! Thanks Mole - glad I'm not going to be cooking on Thursday. Instead we'll be driving the 5 hours through the woods (well, Joshua trees are called "trees", aren't they) to Mom's home and will be eating a lovely buffet cooked by professionals. Might miss some nostalgic effect, but far more efficient. And who knows, perhaps I'll manage to slip out one evening and try photographing the bright lights and glitz a few miles away. Most likely I'll not be enthusiastic enough.

I hadn't seen this before. Really cool! And, I love your expression. You look like "don't you dare come near my bucket!"

I still haven't come up with anything indoors I want to do. I do have one idea, but not sure it's going to make anything worth while.

Brilliant idea!

I am in awe of the imagination of many of the members here. And there are folk who think that photography is just a case of pointing a camera at something and going "click"!

One of the things that is so great about photography is you can be as involved or not as you wish. It's entirely possible to get pleasing pictures by pointing the camera and pushing the shutter, if the conditions are right. Many people are completely satisfied with what they get that way (after all, camera manufacturers spend millions developing cameras that will - hopefully - do just that). If you want to get different results or want to influence things more, you can if you want to. Or you can become a photo hobbyist and spend hours playing with it.

I ran across this in one of Bryan Peterson's book - I think the picture he had was of his daughter supposedly putting a fork in a toaster, with "fire" bursting out of it. I had forgotten about it until this topic came up, figured I'd give it a try.
