    Thanks Gary. As you can see, my buddy Lucy was excited about the avocados as well.

    What are the specs on this photo? The depth of field is just right in the photo that shows Lucy licking her lips. It's not too shallow and not too deep so you have a nice balance there.

    Off topic slightly, but this reminds me of the days when I worked in a paint store. The company would come out with new colors every few years or so and we'd laugh hysterically at some of the names. I think we had a green color called Avacodo at one time. I don't remember too many customers getting paint in that color. It truly was an aweful paint color.

    Really nice photos. Beautiful dog.

    Lucy wasn't too sure about it, but since it came on a corn tortilla chip, she was cool with it. Unfortunately Lauren couldn't enjoy it with me since she needed to head up north for the weekend to take care of her mother. I begged her to take one long but she didn't want to deprive me. I'm going to try to see if that last one can make it until Sunday. It's in the fridge now to slow the ripening.

    Lucy has no idea what it tastes like in this shot. I just said a couple of buzz words to get her excited for the photo. Having a noisy tortilla chip bag helped. I gave her a chip with a bit of guac and she seemed ready for more, but we don;t like to give her too much human food and turn her into a beggar.

    Not sure which specks you are referring to James. The texture on our ugly countertop? The black pepper in the guacamole? Or the E-P1's "grain" (noise)? The shot with Lucy is at ISO 1600....one stop further than I like to go with the E-P1, but my kitchen is darkish at 8 pm. There are some recessed lights that are kinda like spotlights so the guacamole was really well lit and Lucy was in the shadows. I was barely able to even get the shot I wanted.

    Isn't that Don Gillogly, just a ton more creamy than Haas? There are more where those came from, so come-on by.

    AARRGG! Lowly E-p1! Aren't you ashamed to feature such trash, from such a lowly digital entrant. A 12MP, noisy, unloved, wana-be. At least 2 or 3 generations have passed it by. Belongs on your "collectible" self.:biggrin:

    Luke, I saw these on Flickr earlier and my immediate reaction was "Yum!" - didn't even notice the "ugly countertop"!:biggrin:

    Gary, their creaminess is almost alarming. If and when I can ever find some free time, I'm flying out there. I MUST try your sangria recipe in person.

    And Steve, I know you're being sarcastic, but you might hurt my E-P1's feelings. I still love the way that old E-P1 renders.....just not at this high of an ISO (except for b/w conversions.....then 1600 is fine). It's just the only camera left in the house as I had a massive sell-off and am awaiting the next binge session. If I were trying to make anything other than a snapshot, I could have set-up the tripod and stuck to bse ISO like those poor Sigma people need to do with their state of the art cameras. :tomato2:

    As long as I love having fancy cameras and my wife owns a horse, we will always have ugly countertops. We've chosen our priorities. Small, ugly house and lots of furry friends to fill it up with love. :cloud-9-039:

    It may be cheaper if I just sent you more fruit.
