Wicked good as usual. I like how the one seed appears to be falling out of the package in the first one. You rock.

that is a rather excellent selection of colorful closeups, Tink!
Oh yes, I want an Iron Maiden tee, but I don't think I need the sombrero or mask....
I have a bittersweet entry, simple as it is:

They make chocolate covered sunflower seeds? GET OUT!! Holy Bleep! Never knew that!

Great play! How are the wedding plans. Down to the last month! I so excited for y'all, squeeeeeeeee!

Is it ok to cuss here? Because holy shit - those are the skinniest legs I have ever seen! I wasn't that skinny at 5! I can't believe that cop wouldn't let him wear the mask... what the hell?!

I can't believe how professional your pictures look - I feel like I could reach out and touch the sunflower seeds.

Chocolate Sunflower Seeds?? When did they invent those??!!?? It's just amazing what brilliant ideas people can come up with nowadays.

Great close ups. I tried a couple of close ups too. Yours are better.

Chocolate covered sunflower seeds? I have to start looking for those. They look wonderful. My son has that same Iron Maiden shirt.. he noticed as I was scrolling. ;)

I thought I had hit the Easter basket jackpot with those chocolate covered sunflower seeds! (All of your closeups are beautiful)

And the Vader mask? Hard to believe that freaked out a cop. Esp. on a kid with skinnier legs than H-J has!

My pics are up!

Did you make yourself a home made softbox or lightbox? Good job!

"I am your Poppi," cracked me up.

love your photos, as always.

I promise to start playing again soon ... just as soon as my life quits falling apart. *sigh*

At 19 August, 2008, Blogger Janet said...

Ooooh, where'd you get those skull earphones! And how do you get Gary to leave you nice comments? LOL!

Um...that Lowbrow Folk Art Carving thing is wicked scary!

Love the pirate cupcake, tho ;-)

i didn't know there WERE chocolate covered sunflower seeds! they certainly are photographed gorgeously, here...

mine are.. uh.. sort of up. ish. http://aliceblogs.blogspot.com/2008/08/wwcish-bitter-sweet.html

OH, Tink - gorgeous pictures - I wanted to reach through my monitor and GRAB them! Where on earth did you find chocolate covered sunflower seeds? I LOVE chocolate, and I LOVE sunflower seeds!
And the picture of the walnut is perfect, too. I think they are a tad bitter, too - but I love all the others. If we ever meet and split a can of"mixed nuts" - which come to think of it could also sort of describe all of us who play WWC with you ; ) - I promise to give you all the peanuts and cashews if I can have the rest!
My pictures are up, too.

 
At 19 August, 2008, Blogger Reb said...

Love the colours of the seeds! Mmmm nuts, any kind, love 'em.

That lowbrow carving - WTF is right!

Mine are up.

Oh, those sweet pictures are gorgeous - and contest winning congrats are in order?? :)

Huh. $74 for that scarf is indeed a WTF.

Moron cop...

And I have to echo what everyone else said...

Chocolate covered sunflower seeds? At least tell me they're already shelled...

Brendan loves those chocolate- covered sunflower seeds. We always have to buy them when we go to the Monterey Bay Aquarium. :)

 
At 19 August, 2008, Blogger flutter said...

my brain just short circuited. chocolate sunflower seeds?!

 
At 19 August, 2008, Blogger DebbieDoesLife said...

Do you really take these pictures? I am suspicious.....why aren't you a professional photog then??

 
At 19 August, 2008, Anonymous apathy lounge said...

I noticed the same thing about the seed in the first pic. Even if it was an accident...say nothing. It looks awesome.

 
At 20 August, 2008, Blogger Jo said...

The choco-seed photos are so good, they should give you a lifetime supply. I'm afraid to try them, it's an addiction waiting to happen.

The walnut is cool--it looks like a big creepy organ.

 
At 20 August, 2008, Blogger Newt said...

The chocolate covered seeds are way cool. And I agree, I think a lot of nuts taste bitter.

Very nice job girl!!!

Mine are up!

 
At 20 August, 2008, Blogger Terri said...

oh my goodness, I don't know if anyone else noticed but I couldn't help it....could iron maiden dude's (poppi) legs be any skinnier???

 
At 20 August, 2008, Blogger Foo said...

After viewing your delightfully colorful pictures, I'm fighting the urge to head downstairs to the vending machine.

 
At 20 August, 2008, Blogger Tawcan said...

Lovely pics as always. I really like that close up pic of the nut. :)

 
At 21 August, 2008, Blogger Jay said...

Oh, I wondered why those candies were oddly shaped. Sunflower seeds,neat.

 
At 21 August, 2008, Blogger rudecactus said...

My, you have nice nuts.

(sorry, remember I'm 12)

I got chocolate covered sunflower seeds in St Louis. they were called Cardinal poop. lol

hope you guys are doing well riding out that storm, the news just showed a beach not too far from your area...looked windy and wet.

 
At 21 August, 2008, Blogger womaninawindow said...

Of course, I'm partial to the food shots. I'm incurable. Damn. Need a diet.

 
At 22 August, 2008, Blogger phsymom said...

OK, give it up ... where did you get the skull earphones? C'mon spill it. :D

I've never even seen chocolate covered sunflower seeds. That sounds pretty good. Wonder if I can get them here in Texas.

 
At 23 August, 2008, Blogger JerseyTjej said...

Those photos made me hungry, but it is only after 6 am and there are no chocolate covered sunflower seeds here in Sweden...Life is so effin unfair.

 
At 23 August, 2008, Blogger Lisa said...

Oh my gosh, chocolate sunflower seeds look delicious. Wherever can I find those??
