Good morning y’all! (Read it with a Southern accent since I’m greeting you from Georgia) The rain doesn’t seem to stop, does it?

I wonder if I’m the only one that has “non artistic” days In the last week all the photos I took were rubbish (and I’m being kind to them). I’m far from being a great food photographer but there are days no matter how many pictures I take all of them land in the recycle…
