Yeah it's a weed, but it's a pretty weed.
There is one little patch of them by the
dog park here. The scarcity of them makes
them seem less like a weed here, but
from what I read on the Internet they
sound difficult to get rid of if you don't want them.
At any rate, The Basset likes them, so we stop and check them out often.

Lunchtime Photo Shoot
This was actually taken before yesterday's photo of the day.
(yeah, I'm a little out of order :) Before I go out on a
job I like to experiment a little with different compositions
and lighting. This was an especially important thing this time
since I was not using my trusty AE-1. I would not trade my AE-1
for anything, but professional food photography is definitely
in the realm of the medium format camera with an interchangeable
Polaroid back, or a good digital camera. Without the immediate
feedback it is just too hit or miss to capture the wide range
of colors and textures.
Incidentally, I have some very kind friends who attended our wedding to thank for this shot. The extremely cool plate is part of a wedding gift.

I really liked this picture. It is one of the first batch of photos I pulled out to scan when I got my new scanner a year ago. But, I was not sure who else might find it attractive. Turns out, it is pretty fitting for a Mexican Restaurant.
