Thanksgiving 2009

Thanksgiving 2009 ... made and ate a lot of food (including a chocolate avocado mousse), saw friends (Sarah and Saad both in town) and even made a quick stop in Jersey .. and Bud also called from Quantico!  He sounded so tired - cannot wait to see him soon.  
Aaron was so kind as to host us ... and he even let me play the keyboard.  
Love the 50mm - I'm so lucky to have with a full frame sensor!

I shopped at Target the day before

Working With the 50mm

I love these lines from Jack Johnson's song, Better Together, "our dreams, and they are made out of real things like a shoebox of photographs with sepia-toned loving ... "  Here are a few pics with my new lens, the next time I snap and shoot will probably be on Tksgiving Day (when Sarah gets here!)
I have 3 Canon Cameras at Home
I started liking Sepia More

A Few More Test Shots

I hung out with Jeff L. Sunday afternoon who happened to be in town and we both decided to test out the new gear.  It was fun photo-walking around Central Park ... here are just a few of the sample shots.  Tks to him for being a good sport / letting me take pics.

This started as my self portrait until someone else stepped into the picture

Another Pizza Night

We had another pizza night at Casa Patel ... and just like last time, the pizza turned out quite well.  I made a pumpkin and pear soup on the side topped some crostinis with sweet and saltiness (cheddar apples, pear gorgonzola, jam gorgonzola, apple butter blue cheese).  Here's how it turned out, can't wait for a holiday themed dinner in December!
