A dry martini with two olives is one of my favourite drinks to celebrate… whatever there is to celebrate!

For example, today is Tuesday, December 28, so let’s celebrate… aaahh… hmmm… Tuesdays!!!

Happiness is…..finding two olives in your martini when you’re hungry.

Testing the flash commander mode in my new camera. My SB-600 speedlight was placed at a 45° angle to the left of my subject, directed at the white background. Light was bounced back on the front of the subject by two white cards placed at 45° on the right side. Flash power set at 1/20.

    Well done on the feature and the pic is fantatsic, lovce the b&w and the tonal levels in it….just a delicate picture…wow

  • Thank you Judith! I have always thought that a Martini glass does look delicate and elegant. The droplets kind of emphasize that impression. :-)
