These photos represent a few things that I love.
1) Hot Cocoa. I’m not really a coffee drinker (although I do have a bit of fondness for mocha), so my hot drink of choice is usually hot cocoa. I don’t drink it that often now, but I used to drink it a lot as a teen. Now every time I drink it I guess it takes me back to when my biggest concern was getting my schoolwork done so I could go practice violin. Good times.
2) Saving Money. I don’t like dealing with major inconveniences or doing without my favorite things to save money. But anytime I can save and it’s not really an inconvenience, hey, I’m all for it. This cocoa mix, for example, was made by your’s truely for pennies. It only took a couple minutes to make a really big batch. It has a really good favor so it’s not like I’m having to settle for something that’s not as good. And a flavor I can control, so if I want to cut the sugar and bump the chocolate I can! So it’s not really inconveniencing me in any way, yet it costs a very tiny bit of what it would cost to go buy Nestle’s. That’s the kind of money saving I like.
3) Playing with Lighting. I am by no means a lighting expert, but I enjoy pretending! On these I just used an off camera flash on each side (like 4:00 and 8:00) triggered optically by the onboard flash (which was turned down because I didn’t really want it’s light, I just wanted it to trigger the other lights). So anyway, not the best shots in the world, and a bit hot, but, camera geek that I am, I had fun shooting them.
