Milk and oatmeal cookies.  A welcome treat at any age ~ made with my own recipe that has just the right amount of crunch. 

I wanted a playful shot given the milk/cookie theme so used a colorful cup and accessories.  Because I had back lighting I added direct lighting to highlight the cookies.  Still required adjusting in lightroom to get the color/lighting right.  f5.6, ISO 100, 1/100,

Cherry Crumble Muffins.  I'm not sure why but I bake and eat more muffins in the summer than any other time of year.  I wanted to capture a summer feel so I shot this outside with natural light (sun at 90 degrees).  I used my kit lens (55-200mm) and my f stop was 8 and frankly I was hoping for more depth of field... in retrospect I think it would have been a better choice to have used my 50mm prime instead. The muffins were wonderful in any event!

Peach and Amaretti Tart ~ I love when peach season arrives so I can make one of these tarts.  For this picture I went with a colorful composition using flowers and a peach (naturally) along with a bright background and a boken effect.  Shot with natural light indoors and adjusted in lightroom.

Being surrounded by these beautiful butterflies felt like I was wandering in a Dream ~

The wild sage is covered at this time of year in Topanga, California.

Moon Flower ~ actually I don't know what this flower is called but it looks like a sleepy moon to me.  These are some of my favorite wildflowers growing in the santa monica mountains in Southern California.

Both as a tribute to the Moon and because it's #throwbackthursdays   I'll match with this pic with the classic R.E.M. song "Man on the Moon" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1hKSYgOGtos

+Claudia Bugh I'd love to send some rain. I'm pretty sure there are some areas that are badly flooded. But it's been OK so far. The river is too high and some of the parks are flooded but that's it.:-)

Train tracks are ubiquitous and run the length of California's coastline. This is shot at sunset from North Beach, San Clemente, California.

Bread pudding made with homemade brioche.  Kinda like french toast for grownups lol

I shot this using a tripod because I wanted a direct overhead view.  I don't think I quite achieved a flat plane, maybe I should have paid attention to the leveling bar.... I used all natural light with a low shutter speed.  I probably should have also used a higher f-stop to get better focus on the fruit as well as the bread but it was overcast and I needed the light....maybe with a higher ISO it would have worked better.  Tasted wonderful though.

Introduction
I live in the Santa Monica Mountains overlooking the beaches of Malibu, California and hike every morning with my german shepherd. I take pictures on our hikes as well a variety of other locations around Southern California.  Although I no longer update my blog as frequently as I once did I still enjoy hand crafts and cooking and these pictures are in my stream as well. Apparently I've never outgrown the show and tell phase of childhood.
