Weekend Relaxer #43
I completely had plans of shooting a different setup this week, but that all changed thanks to an email and the kind words of a young girl. This all took place the other night when Brian Arsenault got back to me about the Extra Life for Kids prize. You see, Brian is the lucky winner of the limited edition print (thank you random.org for making that easier). He filled his daughter in on what all took place and her response was the following:
“Dad, how about we let your friend pick a photo, print it, and donate it to the kids play room at the hospital?”
Honestly, I am humbled by this kindness and generosity. Therefore, the setup in this shot is in honor of this little girl and the task she has set before me. I have decided that I will produce a special shot for this donation, and thus I need to start exercising my creative juices to make something a bit more extra special. I have a lot of work ahead of me and I hope I can make this young Arsenault proud!
As for the Breakfast Stout from Founders, well it is very good. I mean Founders is a solid brewery as it is, but my first sip of this brew got me addicted pretty badly. The blending of rich dark coffee to chocolate is wonderfully executed in that the coffee shines right away while the baker’s chocolate sneaks in to add a bit of flavor complexity. The finish is that of dark malts and fine roasted coffee while the oatmeal adds on a smoothness that makes this beer a dangerously easy concoction to drink. There is a very good reason this beer is so highly recommended, and I fully endorse all the praise it receives!
