This is how we crush ice

Visited polyphonicvegan yesterday, yes. She made vegan chocolate minty ice cream that I am currently eating with a fork because I cannot find any of my spoons, which is a far greater mystery than the sock stealing dryer. It is yumtastic (the vegan ice cream).

Anyway, in order to make the ice cream we needed to crush ice and because L didn't want to spend all day crushing ice with her feet, we made excellent use of Henrietta the Hybrid.

Yeah, that's me with the crushed ice (some of which was destroyed beyond use) and Henrietta the Hybrid and her very awesome Peace Begins with the Fork - Go Veg bumper sticker.

Running over ice is very cathartic, in case you were wondering.

It was all worth it because now I am nomming on vegan ice cream at 9:30 in the morning. Ha! Take that, someone who cares.






And then I took pictures of her critters. Because I could. Click to see larger, of course.

YOU SHOWED THAT ICE!

Hermione says that her picture appears to be missing from yesterday's photo shoot and, if you value your life, you will come back POST HASTE and document her stunning beauty.

Ernie is currently purring on my arm while I type this, which means he approves of yesterday's portrait.

Hells yeah I did.

Tell Herms next time she needs to not be curled up in the dark corner halfway under a blanket. And giving me the evil eye.

ERNIE'S APPROVAL - I is happy!

Is there a secret to taking such great photos? In 7 words or less ... or however many words you've got time for?

kthxverymuch

Your formula in seven words plus bonus conclusion:

Marji + Cannon camera and a fancy lens = THE SECRET

Seven words: Decent camera, great lens, lots of photos.

More than seven words:
As an example: I took about 50 shots yesterday of which I felt 3 were OMG YOU MAKE ME SMILE and three were like I THINK MY FRIEND WILL LIKE THESE AND WILL POST THEM.

It certainly helps to be familiar with basic photographic skills but I think ultimately it's practice, practice, practice with a decent camera and great lens. :)

That first photo of the Pook is stunning!

And I can't tell which I love more: a) your bad-ass means of ice crushage or b) your ice-crushing ensemble, which features so many of my favorite things (i.e. pearl-ish buttons, lace slip, black tights and an unconventional eye for matching colors) that I don't know where to begin. In both instances: Well done!

That's cuz he's handsome kitty.

L said I looked ready for a party while I felt ready to curl up in a sofa with dogs, tea and a book. I also had leg warmers on, but ignore that if you are appalled by leg warmers (I don't want to lose that well done bit). :)

Those critters are so pretty!

Jealous of your ice-cream.

They are pretty, even if one is evil.

L has an ice cream maker that is magical! Except that it only takes really crushed ice (hence the driving) and it has a weird hookup, but other than that, it's awesome.

I wish I could figure out how to use that thing without destroying my kitchen in the process.

I can't believe you went home without any brownies. JFo made them and then hasn't taken a bite since. I can't* eat the whole pan myself. Waaaaaa.

*A lie.
