Well, I pretty much took this picture just to prove to myself that I can, in fact, take a beautiful photo of food.  I've done it before, and I am sure I'll do it again, but I was just feeling like I didn't put any energy or time into my photo of the day.  They were rushed and turning out dark, grainy, flashed, etc.  Well, lighting is key...mid morning gives such glorious light.  So, I took a bunch of pictures of the cake, and they turned out well.  I had fun styling it, and fussing with it, and standing on the counter top to take this picture... 
Now, about the siblings had fair judging last week.  Tuesday was food judging.  Which means Monday was food making day.  All day, lots of food.  Well due to various events, dear Paige, had to make THREE batches of this cake in order to get one 'just right' for the fair.  Of course, no one expects cakes to be PERFECT, but they can't be too small, or stick to the pan and fall half apart...well not if you want to win a blue ribbon!  (If you just want to eat it-not a problem!)  Needless to say, we had lots of chocolate chip pound cake with caramel frosting! yummm  I was happy....

Well I've been gone all summer, and as you can see, haven't gotten any more photos of the day posted.  I don't think I will be able to get them all posted, in order so I decided on a plan B.  I am going to pick out my favorites, and post them. :)
I'm still taking pictures, but not very much time is being spent on photography currently, as I am very busy with camp.  The summer is officially over at camp, but retreat season has started, and is keeping us on our toes.
Here is one of my favorite photos of the summer.
