For the first time in about 10 years, I get lots of natural light in my kitchen, so I keep taking pictures of it. It takes very little to keep me entertained.

See how you can get three very different looks without using Photoshop? Which version do you like the most?


  1. Hmmm...there's something nostalgic about the first one. I love the first one the best.

  2. I like the 2nd :)

    Kathy was over my house in NJ over the wknd and we were going through your entire site's photos - she LOVES them and of course, I think you're SO freakin talented :)


  3. i like the 2nd one too. :) where do you print these out?? they're all film cameras, right?

  4. Yes, they're all film. Hmmm, I think they were all printed at different labs because I was hunting around for a good one for awhile...I can tell you the last one for sure was done by my current lab, Chelsea Photographic Services. They are wonderful!

  5. i like the first one best, by far!!

    i can't wait to see you after this slew of weddings, vacays, etc. are over... it's summer now, so it will be even harder to find time :(

    excited to hear about errrrrr-ay!!!

  6. hmmm... I'm gonna have to vote for numero tres! I love all three.

  7. Thanks for your input, everyone! My favorite is the first. I like the nostalgic feeling of it too!

  8. I like the third one but all of them are great! I wish I could stray from my digital and go back to film... You have a great eye!

  9. oh.. nevermind, I CAN post! I had tried at another 'blogspot' and couldn't w/o a google accnt, but here I can do it I see.. ;p Anyway I like the first the best too which makes me happy as I feel like I must have great taste! (being, of course, your taste ;)

    Love your pics, you have such talent!
