No opportunity for a siesta or a siesta photo today, so I pulled out an appropriate one from a trip to La Jolla Cove last year. This pelican was clearly enjoying the midday sun and an opportunity for a siesta. Canon 7D, 1/1250 sec @ f/10, ISO 200 telephoto zoom at 340mm. Just so you don't think I'm a 365 slacker, here's today's rainy day photo.
Today's prompt was "Chicken or the Egg?". So I pulled out an Easter PEZ Dispenser and set her in the middle of a basket of eggs. The picture is what it is but the circular cause and circumstance has been debated for all of written history.
Consider this - Macrobius, an early 5th century Roman philosopher, found the problem to be interesting: "You jest about what you suppose to be a triviality, in asking whether the hen came first from an egg or the egg from a hen, but the point should be regarded as one of importance, one worthy of discussion, and careful discussion at that."
Canon 5D Mark II, 1/1600 sec @ f/3.5, ISO 800, 100mm macro lens.
Today's challenge was food photography and the prompt was "a perfect duo". What's more perfect than pie and ice cream; getting to eat the pie and ice cream after photographing it. Had to work fast. Olympus OM-D E-M1, 1/60 sec @ f/11.0, ISO 800, 3 LED litepanels and one overhead room light.
