Life Happening - May 5, 2012

Posted by
Doug (Burnham-on-Sea, United Kingdom) on 8 May 2012 in Food & Cuisine and Portfolio.

Shopping and Dinner
The usual Saturday this week, shopping for the essentials, then the better bit setting the table for dinner with family !


Making an effort to return to AM3 after a bit of an absence, it's really nice to see photo's from all contributors and I will try to comment when I can. If I offer criticism I do so only to help and I do not wish to cause offence. My photography tends to be from my travels, as well as my passion which is wildlife and landscape. I hope you enjoy what you see.
Thanks for your comments I'm really grateful for them and welcome constructive feedback.

Nigel from Avening, United Kingdom

Good to see the Benecol, skimmed milk, 30%less fat cheese, and the greens BUT.................. DOUBLE CREAM and a WINE GLASS ?? It'll cost you for me NOT to tell Mrs B, after all Friday is not far away. Actually it's a fine pair - the table setting particularly - some of us didn't even think about doing it.

@Nigel: I'm having to suffer exercise now because of the double cream, who says having family over for a treat is pleasure !!

Curly from South Shields, United Kingdom

Nice processing with the table setting, the bit I hate is filling the cupboards when you come home - wives are so fussy about where things are meant to go!

8 May 2012 9:42am

@Curly: My trick for this is keep doing it wrong and eventually they tell you that you're more of a hindrance than a help and tell you to go away !!

Adela Fonts from Barcelona, Spain

Interesting picture ... I like the interpretation of happiness ... A hug, Adela

Beautiful! A wonderful composition and perfect for Life Happening! That was a big shopping trip! Lots of stuff to put away which is not my favorite thing to do. There is nothing better than sitting around the table and having dinner with your family.

Christine from Ellemford, United Kingdom

This is a great combination and I agree with Michael. A resistance to putting the shopping away must be a man thing!
