Two Things Challenge: Sweet / Star
Boy, the holidays can be rough! And this year seems especially harried. This week's Two Things Challenge is Sweet and Star. Here are my interpretations of both of those.
Star: The first picture is a portion of a larger picture I took the other night while waiting for my mom. In its larger format, it wasn't that interesting, but when I cropped it, it acquire sort of a stellar character. Plus, I'm learning how to adjust my apertures on my wee little digital camera, which allows for more flexibility in night/low light photography. (Just one more reason why I need to upgrade to a digital SLR and finally take a photography class, which I've been hankering to do since high school.)
Sweet: The second picture is the dessert I made for our traditional Christmas dinner. Our ancestors are German, so every Christmas Eve, my family has Roladen, mashed potatoes and gravy, buttered cabbage and carrots, homemade crescent rolls, and Black Forest Cherry Cake. This is the first time I've ever made it. Not my finest example of baking, but a fair start.
Happy Holidays everyone!
