Assignment #2-- Picnic

This is the second day of Creativity Boot Camp and our topic for the day was picnic. I thought this would be easy. I ran to my basement to drag out an old picnic basket thinking I would set it up on the picnic table and snap away. Then I thought--that's too easy. I need more of a challenge. What could I do that would say picnic but not include a basket, a tablecloth or a bottle of wine? I thought about looking for an ant hill and then placing some food nearby so they would be attracted, but I didn't have a lot of time to wait. It was getting late and I didn't want to use flash. Somehow flash and picnic doesn't seem right. My last thought was picnic food. So I put some hot dogs on the grill, grabbed the condiments, a bag of chips and my camera. Voila! My picnic.

Love your depth of field on this. I'm still learning photography and have a long way to go.

You're so funny. Hot dog picnic and ivory cake stand....they do not go together at all. I love your luxurious fabric.....hopefully a 2nd set of hand can make it fall the way you envision it, but must say I rather like the way it looks right now.

The hot dog looks so yummy.....and I don't even like hot dogs, but I do like sauerkraut!
