Soooo, I went down a bit of a rabbit hole with this one! A dear family friend is playing chess with Dad 3 times a week. They often wear hats, and always have a great time. My Dad has the board set up hours before Peter gets there. I tried this on Wed but I had some issues with my camera, and although it came out ok I wanted to try again. Peter is a great sport and brought props including the fake mustache. Dad's hats are handmade felted hats that a friend makes. I removed a sky light and a light fixture that were annoying. I couldn't decide whether to submit the unfiltered version or this one. Dad looked at them both and said this was a much better photo! Lol!

Pitchfork S'mores. I rarely compose setup photos. But this week, I decided to give it a try. I placed large marshmallows on the tines on a pitchfork and burned them. Then, I inserted matches into each marshmallow and lit them as fast as I could. I took the photo at night in my garage and tried to just use the light from the matches, but ended up using a small flashlight off the side. The background is graham crackers that I shot as a texture. Before I blended the two photos, I used a radial blur filter on the crackcers (PS). I used the Overlay blending mode for the composite montage (PS).. No significant edits in LRC. My inital plan was to have a background/texture of fire, but couldn't figure out how to safely do that.

Such a perfectly timed theme, the local Ginger Factory has installed this art project, by Sophy Blake, which is so photogenic. I think business is booming as a result. I drove there for the photo and left with a bag of candied ginger and a jar of ginger marmalade! Edits in phone.

Thanks to Hugo for once again being a good sport. I sure wish I could have set this up in our historical fort saloon, but my bedroom had to suffice. Ignore the level or blinds, please. Since I decided to have overlapping elements, the editing was a bit more challenging, but it turned out okay I think. I think this is "Read 'em and Weep, Fellas"
