  1. What an interesting woman. What is she cooking?

    • Hi Natures’ Child. I thought she was very interesting. what a great face and outfit.

      She was making every Mexican dish you could ever think of that utilizes chicken.

      I angled it in post as a design element using Photoshop CS6. If you view the larger image page, you will see it was captured perfectly horizontal.


      • Lived, nearly 2 decades ago. It is a fantastically cultural place. When I saw your photos of the Thai dancers, those memories flooded back as well. Beautiful people, tastiest food, gorgeous scenery.

      • Lucky you! I was just reading about Malaysia and what a great place it is and how inexpensive it is to live there.

        “Beautiful people, tastiest food, gorgeous scenery”…You definitely have me intrigued.


      • It’s a long flight from California, but worth the time if you can stay 2-3 weeks! Rent a car. You can get just about anywhere by roads safely, quickly. I can’t wait to take my kids back. I hear it’s changed a lot since I left.

      • I hear both, good and bad. We lived right on the coast with raw jungle and palm/rubber tree plantations behind us, and all of those creatures (elephants, pythons, giant ants, the like) that I hear are all gone now — the jungle downed for civilization. The locals tell me that that is quite sad. Being a nature girl, I have to agree.

      • That is very sad, and it’s happening all over the world. Especially impacted are Asian countries where most palm oil is produced. At least you were there while these magnificent animals were still around. Thanks for commenting Shannon.


  2. May I ask you for some information that is not here?
    How did you take these shots?
    Is this a handheld or a tripod shot? Flash? Mirror lock? etc….

    • Of course, that is one of the main reasons I started this blog!

      They were handheld. Nothing fancy: Aperture Priority mode f/5.0, 1/80 sec., ISO 200. For the shot of the woman, the background was brighter than the woman who was under a tarp so I used an Exposure Index of +0.67 stops so she wouldn’t silhouette. If I hadn’t done that the camera would have been fooled by the bright sunny background leaving her underexposed.

      On the chicken photo I went down to the 1/60 sec. to make the flames look nice by motion blurring them a bit.
