Still Life with Bird Wing

I have this Buddha in our bedroom. On the light chains, there are little creatures that my wife Louise has hung. This shadow is of a cloisonne hummingbird hanging from one of the lights.
Ratatouille and Jeremy
While not a finished ratattouille, the components are there. Jeremy Wine in Lodi, California provided the lovely zinfandel that I drank later that day.
Liqueur Cigars and Temple Gong
I was doing a product shoot for a client and I brought these things along to get the lighting the way I wanted before the shoot.
