Happy Thanksgiving!

Posted by
Bettina (Los Angeles, United States) on 25 November 2010 in Documentary & Street and Portfolio.

The first time using a flash since I started here. It looked like a crime scene to me. Hopefully the dinner won't be. I opted for an unsentimental image, even though I am forever grateful for so many things, especially my two absolutely most wonderful children.

I'm sure a forensic team wouldn't find much at this crime scene as there will be nothing left to find! But it does look as though someone will quite busy!
Happy Thanksgiving!

nice one. have a great thanksgiving. we obviously don't have it here but i was invited to someone's house for the day when i was in texas. the hospitality was super generous and i ate myself to sleep. i also approve of the cheeky bottles tucked behind the turkey.

25 Nov 2010 9:52am

@Philip: They're very cheeky! Thanksgiving is for gorging yourself. My favorite meal of the year. I can only imagine a Texas Thanksgiving.

Looks like you have everything you need, we opted to not have Turkey this year as with just the two of us so much goes to waste with the huge turkeys here, we just cannot find a smaller one

Wishing you and yours a Happy Thanskgiving

I laugh aloud to your expression Crime scene ;))) Excellent internal image ;) Mr Fridge has superb inviting sensory & yummy organs ! Have a superb Thanksgiving with your children & all, and Cheers, dear Bettina (thanks again for the big grin, plus the image is really great !)

25 Nov 2010 5:13pm

@k@: LOL. I'm glad I brought a laugh. Mr. Fridge is a little dirty around the edges and there's a nasty looking dripping spill in the back. But I wanted to see it in that clinical way. Thanks and hope you had a nice normal day in France.

DULCIE from Danville, CA, United States

Excellent shot...yes, there is a sort of 'crime scene' look to it.
The "crime" being the scrumptious dinner you are going to pull together from all those parts and pieces. Great idea....very creative !! Happy eating !
