happy birthday! these cool candles were on my 51st b-day cake. you can always pick out a photog cuz we’re so interested in the shot we often forget all else. as soon as i saw the cake and great candles out came the camera and… everyone was suddenly urging me to blow out the candles so they could have some cake! shot it up close and relative low dof and fast speed to show off the curls and the flames

    Oh your family feels just like MINE!!!!! lol

  • LOL!!! any true artsit gets lost in the work. not sure that applies to me as i’m often not so sure about the “artist” in me. camera does all the work, and gets most of the pay too darn it!
