CITY COUNCIL SHOOT

Got up at 6 this morning, had my usual espresso to get the wiring in my head going. Threw some gear in the car and off to City Hall to photograph the Cedar Park City Council with recently added new members. 

The shoot was scheduled for 8am. I was there last Friday setting up a couple of lights to make sure I would be ready for such an early morning shoot.

They were all such troupers! Smiling that early!! Repeatedly!!


They were looking for three different looks to choose from...so here they are.

TO THOSE WHO SERVED

My dad, who is still pretty much a bright sharp cookie at 95 in front of the Veteran's Memorial in Cedar Park. Dad served in WWII, Africa, Sicily, Italy and the forgotten war, The Korean Conflict.

To my Dad and all those that have served and paid the price. Happy Veterans's Day.

Thanks for stopping by.

SWEDISH TEA RING

©Andy deBruyn

Every year around this time my wife starts to make the Swedish Tea Rings. Usually for Thanksgiving or Christmas or both since we like them so much.

Here it is fresh and hot from the oven before the icing. I think it looks great like that all brown and toasty with just a hint of brown sugar oozing out.

It makes the whole house smell wonderful, too.

Thanks for stopping by.

DIGITAL PREMIES

These four images are from 2009, the first year I started shooting with a digital camera. Prior to that, I had been shooting film for some thirty plus years. So I was still in an experimental stage....probably still am...with digital there's pretty much an open space to explore.

Check out Joey Monsoon's work...example at bottom of blog.
