52 Photos Project: On the Table


The prompt for this week's 52 Photos Project is "On the Table".  Here's my entry:


This image was taken as we waited for our food to arrive on our first evening in Bonaire of The Netherlands Antilles a few years go.  We had come in February, from cold and rainy Oregon, to go scuba diving in the Caribbean.  It is a long flight from Portland to Bonaire...an overnight flight, and we were very happy to be there that first evening.  Our table was on a balcony that extended out over the water, and it was a very romantic evening.  I had just a point and shoot camera along, and I wanted to shoot without flash.  Of course, I had no tripod, and so I balanced the camera on a knife to get it at the right angle.  Then, I used the camera's self-timer to avoid movement when the shutter released.

For more images on the table, visit the gallery.

That's a very nice photo. I love the overall colors with the light on the salt/pepper shakers.
