September 25th - Still Life and Starbucks

Here's a still life of some cherry and plum tomatoes. The large red and yellow ones were picked yesterday, at my mother in law's house, in 90 degree weather. The itty bitty red one was grown in my front yard. It rarely goes over 65 degrees here. See the difference a little sun can make?! My kid says the tiny one was the best tomato she's ever tasted. :) Since the lighting wasn't the best, I turned it into a watercolor again. :P Yeah, yeah, that's the ticket. I'm going to blame the lighting...

This other shot is of a Starbuck's on the peninsula. I was driving by and started craving a decaf white chocolate mocha, soy, with lots of whipped cream on top. Since I didn't have time to stop, and really didn't need to drink it, I took the photo instead. Even in broad daylight, my cell phone camera takes grainy shots. I feel I've gotten lucky a few times this month, but mostly I am not very happy with the quality of pictures I get with this phone. Oh, well. Next 30 day challenge, I'll use my regular camera again. :P

Oh, and those boxes on the sidewalk are newspaper and adverts boxes.

Lighting sure has a lot to answer for!!

What are all those things lined up in the bottom picture? Recycling bins? Post boxes????
