Photography Challenge, Week 4!

Food is one of my favorite things in life.
Photography is one of my favorite things in life.
Never have these worlds collided in my life.
Week 4 of the Photography Challenge is "Dinner."
I have felt silly (to say the least) when taking up close pictures of candlesticks, teacups, and flowers.  Nothing quite compares to having a table full of hungry kiddos, everyone in a hurry to get back outside for the final moments of summer fun, and I announce, "Hold that thought, I need to take a picture of the pasta plate."
Say "huhwha?"
Just pipe down and wait, already.
I couldn't even give the evil eye when they giggled through the dinner prayer.
Laughing at their mother is one of their favorite things in life.
Angel hair pasta and garden veggies...ready for the close-up!
