Martini Time

    Newer Older

    One of my all time favorites, mainly because I worked so hard to get it. The camera was set on a tripod, the flash, attached to the camera by a dedicated chord, was mounted on another tripod off to the side; and I dropped olives into the glass of water with one hand (you don't think I'd waste good vodka on this do you?...) while punching the shutter button with the other hand, as the olive splashed down. Drop after drop after drop. I don't recall how many drops, but all I needed was this one to make my day. A color version is way down near the end of my photo stream (flickr.com/photos/romair/351093239/), but I like this black and white image better.

    mgardewin, Kerry Reed, Gordon _Iowa, and 35 other people added this photo to their favorites.
