MY BIG FAT PHOTO ASSIGNMENT
Text & Pictures by Alan Shils
I hope you enjoy these as much as I enjoyed taking them.
Obviously, I cannot only take photos of what I am 'supposed' to. I look around for anything else that may be interesting.
So we have a very colorful drink in its before and after stages with the critical taste test.
Here is a closeup of a cute item of jewelry on a cute young lady, and I believe all the ladies in our group are the best looking young women of any writing group!
Natalie & Virginia
Candle flames are also 'cute.'
Professor Dorian is (?obviously?) lecturing about French Theater using Italian gestures proving he is a truly an International Man.
Marlene Prost, Jackie Nash

There are the prizes (that I never try to win because I just want to have fun.) The winning pieces were great - congrats to their authors!
