Cup of ...

Last night I was making my children some hot cocoa and we were out of marshmallows.  I looked in the fridge and saw a container of whipped topping and became overwhelmed with memories of my Grandmother.  I remember as a child going to Dohacks with her and her "old" friends.  They used to meet for breakfast on weekends and socialize.  Everytime we went I was treated with a big cup of hot cocoa piled high with whipped topping.  As I made a copy cat cup I felt compelled to photograph it for the "cup of __" theme on my project 52... a cup of nostalgia to pass on to my girls.


I also played around with a new bokeh backdrop idea.  I love the result and it's SO easy.  You just set up crinkled foil far back from your subject and photograph on a very low aperature.  The result is that beautiful bokeh.  So fun!
