A Magical Time of Year

So today I was going through a bunch of old pictures that I had taken years and years ago. It's always fun to look at old pictures and remember all the awesome stuff you did growing up. And sometimes, like today, you get blessed with memories of awesome things that you DIDN'T do! (like take this picture)
As I was going through the pictures, I figured I would take out all of the negatives I was never going to use and try to figure out something to do with them. As I was going through and taking a quick look before tossing them in a box... WHAMO!!! I find a strip of negatives of pictures I didn't take. How random... Now I'm wondering who this kid is and why he has an entire apple shoved in his mouth... Thank you, Wal-Mart, for making my day a little more odd...
PS: Please excuse the crappyness of this scan. I need a good scanner...

You Can Have His Cake And Eat It Too

I got to shoot a couple of cakes for Chef Sam (chef/owner of MasLeon Cakes & Pastries) the other day. The first one was a Vanilla Bean Pumpkin Cheesecake. Now I like cheesecake, but I think this cake has ruined me from being able to enjoy most other cheesecakes I will ever encounter. I just don't think they're going to be able to compare. In fact, I'm pretty sure they won't be able to.

The second cake was the aptly titled Death By Chocolate cake. This thing is huge! Five layers of awesome with chocolate coming at you from every angle. Once you get a few bites in to this cake, you'll pretty much be convinced you would be okay with dying if you could go while eating this... but not until you've started on your second piece.
Finally, I'd like to let you all know that Chef Sam is now on the wonderful world wide web! Check out his website or find him on Facebook. Either way, just get there and order one of his cakes! You won't be sorry (and you can thank me by ordering one for me too). I'm personally waiting to photograph his Double Stuffed Oreo Cheesecake. Yes, that will be a good day...
