Toy Story cake

My wife goes all out when it comes to our kids' birthday cakes. Here's her latest creation. It's Andy's bed from the Toy Story movies. The bed itself is four layers of cake and the painting on the fondant icing is done with food coloring. The headboard and footboard are made of chocolate and the blocks are rice krispie squares with icing on them. The rug next to the bed is also made with fondant icing.

Ghost Roasters

I shot this Saturday night using a 15 second exposure. It's some kids around a stove roasting marshmallows. What I thought was neat was the light coming from the top that's lighting the grassy area above the wall. It looks like sunlight, but it's actually just from a street light. I sat the camera on a short wall, and the ghostly images come from the kids moving in and out of the frame during the exposure time.

Inside Rainbow

This is from the bouns room in our house. There was a CD laying upside down on the desk, and the sun reflecting through the skylight made this cool rainbow effect on the wall.

Old Truck

I see this old truck sitting on a street in Ashland near my son's daycare all the time, so I finally stopped and snapped a photo of it.
