I just realized we are on day 15 of the challenge! Halfway through and 15 is my lucky number. For ‘delicious’ I could’ve gone out to a bakery, to a restaurant, or even whipped up a batch of ‘something’ at home (I’m not a natural chef). But I thought it would be honest and simple to just incorporate one of my favorite ‘delicious’ things… a cup of Earl Grey tea. For me this represents something truly delicious because I can have countless cups a day and every time I love it. It’s refreshing, and thirst quenching, and always tastes just right. Of course, a piece of Jack’s leftover chocolate birthday cake from Monday just adds to the scrumptiousness. He’s a chocoholic and so he had a chocolate cake, with chocolate mousse filling and huge chocolate shavings on the top – Jack heaven. In the background, you can see the piles of fabric strips that I have been tearing up with my Mum this afternoon. We are making a patriotic rag banner to use as part of a photography backdrop for an event at Will’s school in a couple of weeks. I love the layers of color and pattern the bundles of scrap material give to the picture.
I took this photograph at about 2 o’clock in the afternoon in the kitchen, which is at the back of our house. It was a little overcast and dark, so my ISO was set at 640, my shutter speed at 1/60, and my aperture at f/3.2 so the background wasn’t completely a blur.
I really didn’t do very much in Lightroom. I simply increased the exposure, clarity, and sharpening, and decreased the highlights.
I really wanted to head to Fairy Cupcakes for this one, or even Globe Market on Hertel for their homemade apple crisp, but this is as delicious as it got around here today. I think it was my busiest day that I’ve had all year, so I was grateful for a quick snack mid-day from the fridge. I meant to take just one bite before I took the photo, but I got a little carried away. What can I say… it was a sweet macintosh from the farmer’s market and I was STARVING!! 😉
I cropped to a square in snapseed. Then I used the Fresh effect in Camera 360 and framed in Camera+.
