Lisa gave me the idea for this shot. I had the hardest time trying to figure out what take for this week’s theme that wasn't alcohol. I’m a huge cereal fan, I love Smart Start and Honey Nut Cheerios but Sangeeta and I clash over the milk, I prefer fat free, she prefers 2%.
So this weekend my friends and I were entered into a blackjack tournament in Reno, Nevada. Reno’s an awful place… depressing and dismal. We knew this going in but the hotel actually comped us a nice hotel room and our tournament buy in so we figured, lose on purpose and go skiing! Kirk and I don’t gamble… ever… and somehow both of us beat everyone at our tables and advanced. We were a little stressed about winning the next few rounds because that would mean we wouldn’t get to hit the slopes the next day unless we just bailed (and risk losing our comped rooms) but thankfully both of us got crushed in the quarter finals. Skiing on Sunday was fantastic.
This is for the group Macro Mondays. Every Monday a macro photograph is submitted for the week's challenge. This week's theme was "St. Patrick's Day".
