This has been a busy week in our home . . . . the Canadian Federal Election was called considerably earlier than anyone expected, and that changes our lives considerably until the vote takes place and things are wrapped up. Both of us have different roles with Elections Canada . . . . it is very interesting what goes on behind the scenes to provide eligible voters the right to exercise their franchise. Believe me, there is a tremendous amount to do and we will be working many long hours.
So the food preparation begins and the baking frenzy went into high gear and I savoured one of my last chances for a few weeks to have a leisurely photo shoot.
Nikon D4 with 50 mm f/1.4 lens
Dishes from a breakfast set that I have had for a decade or more . .. .orginally from Canadian Tire

Ceramic white basket . . . Pier One
White Milk Pitcher . . . Home Sense
Florals . . . can’t remember . . . they have lived with me for a very long time

Week 17 . .. Milk and Cookies . .. Be Still 52
August 3rd . . . The Studio Online . . In Corners
This photo was taken for Week 4 BeStill 52 project wherein I am in pursuit of bettering my Still Life Photography as led by Kim Klassen.
Using mid afternoon light from the bay window facing north, this photo is of a jelly roll that I made on the weekend and served up for afternoon coffee this afternoon. Now that certainly doesn’t happen every day, but it felt quite decadent to have our afternoon break together and have dessert as well.
The dishes are fine porcelain Cream Lace by Skie McGhie that I have had for some time . . . thought the lace cutwork on them was perfect for upcoming Valentine’s Day.
