Saturday Favorites and Three Amazing Bands

UPDATE: I just saw the most amazing concert in D.C. with my friend R. I went for a British singer-songwriter I adore, Benjamin Francis Leftwich, but I ended up falling in love with all 3 acts there! And during the 2nd act, I kept noticing people kept saying hi to the person behind me. When I finally turned around I realized it was Benjamin! I got tongue-tied but managed to tell him I loved his work and had come just to see him. He was really sweet and gave me a hug. All 3 bands were so great that I had to add samples of their work below. PLEASE give them a shot! IMHO great music can transform your life.

Just stopping by to drop off this week's food photography favorites. Plus I wanted to let you know I've got another video, a savory *gasp* dish, and a very spring-worthy sweet coming up. See y'all soon!

  1. Thanks for sharing! Lovely as always.



  2. I just bought a new camera and I'm still learning how to shoot. I'm thinking of a food theme to shoot since I love to eat. I'm learning a lot from this pictures. What camera are you using?

    Jenn's ice cream recipes

    1. These are actually my favorites from other photographers but all of the other non "favorites" posts have my own photography. You can see my photos and an article about my photography equipment/tips here: I use a Canon Rebel XS (a dSLR) camera.

  3. LOVE the Golden Dragon Cake.

  4. Golden Dragon Cake would have been a perfect cake for New Year! :-)
