When life gives you lemons.....

Real Estate Agent with The Berkshire Group

When life gives you lemons.....be creative!  Sure you can make lemonade or you can come up with even more ideas!  I decided to try to duplicate a photo that I had seen in a book....with just a slice of lemon, a flower vase, club soda, salt and a clothespin, I came up with what I think is a pretty cool shot....quite refreshing if I do say so myself.  For more refreshing photos, check out my photo tour.

And here is how I photographed it:

Hi Emelyn.  Now that photograph is cool!  No....I mean it really feels cool...and refreshing.  Looks like you have a future career in advertising.

Emelyn - That's a neat technique to capture a special picture.  Your title is right on too!  I hope you have a great weekend!

Hi Emelyn,

 Great picture; I love the bubbles and would never have thought of using club soda for bubbles. Thanks for the tip. Happy Halloween.

Linda, if I hadn't added salt to the club soda, I may have taken a sip!

Maggie and Myrl - thank you for your nice comments.

Kristin, the club soda gives you a bubbly base, but right before taking the picture, you had salt and it fizzes even more!
