can i have one to go? it looks delish. it also makes me think of chick lit book covers with fancy drinks. hey that's just me ... a former chocolate martini chick... beautiful photos. the mirror one was totally hip. how did you do that. the bright colors in the mango one make it look like a photo from bon appetit or food and wine. thanks for sharing your photo journey. paz, ananda

ananda-
Thanks! I did the mirror thing while helping my sister move last weekend. she had some wall mirrors wrapped up and this one was broken. I simply placed them on the ground and snapped. :)I'm glad that you like them. Oh yeah, that's one mango to go.

That mirror pic is SO cool! You are a true artist at heart, if I saw a broken mirror, I would just think someone is gonna have 5 yrs bad luck, and threw it away. You see art in it... That is SO AWESOME!

And the Mango pic, I agree, again, with Ananda, and it looks like it should be in a magazine or something, beautiful colors and makes me want one! I will take mine for here please!

Good afternoon, Faith! I'm glad that you like it. My luck is on the up and up. :)
The Mango drink was so delicious. I was waiting for Mrs. Bess to pick me up when I got this. It was a huge daiquiri so I had to put the rest in a plastic cup to go. I hope that you are having a wonderful day. Peace~

Stephen you are a natural!! I can't wait to see you showcase your Portfolio on TV :) Don't forget us the little people in the community centres and libraries!!!!

Ruben said...

The photos are vibrant and beautiful.

tryphina-
There's nothing little about you. You're broader than Broadway. :)

ruben-
Thanks! That reminds me. I need to come and see what you're talking about today.

NML said...

I agree with Ruben. You're a great photographer!

As a photographer, this photo is the first in a very long time to evoke a wee bit of envy in me. I love shots that look like there’s a trick, but the only trick is to look at the world from a different angle. Very original and truly outstanding!!!

Xavier said...

Not sure why, but Blogger messed up my link. In any case, I look forward to seeing more of your camera work.

Professor Zero said...

Gorgeous! You're going to have to do a show, start selling prints!

Stephen Bess said...

nml-
thank you! I'm learning as I go along. I'm hoping to get better at taking pictures.

xavier-
Thank you for that compliment. I had know idea what that photograph would look like when I snapped. I'm pleased with the results though.

profzero-
I guess that there is nothing to it, but to do it. :)Thanks and hello.

That Mango Daiquiri looks devine. Hope you are keeping well and thanks for checking in on me. Yup had to take a break and am back.

Have a good weekend. Watch the world cup final if you can. When the ball gets into the net, that's a goal.

hahahaa, gottcha

brojero-

Have a great weekend!

Re teng monna. Wow, that "seipone" snap is fantastic! It looks like something I'd call The Way In, or something.

Tag! You're it:
-Post six weird facts/habits about yourself. These cannot be used against you later on.
-At the bottom name the six people you will tag next.
-Leave them a comment to let them know they've been tagged and to read your blog.

Stephen Bess said...

rethabile-
Thanks for the compliment and lesson. :)

stunuh-
I never got caught at the game of tag. My name is Stephen Bess don't mean brag. :)

Stunuh Jay said...

Nah-ah! But you get points for trying to weedle you're way out of it :P
Do Dish!!!!

Stephen Bess said...

stunuh-
This is a tuff one because I don't think that any of my habits or facts are weird. It would take someone that knows me well to tell me this??? :)

Stunuh Jay said...

OOH! COOL, Mrs. Bess to the rescue :D

Rose said...
