I don't know what it was. And really, I don't care. Because it was magic. My camera and I, we were on the same page yesterday. I haven't felt the photo love for a long while even though I have been uploading to my flickr almost daily. Photos were feeling like a chore, and one I didn't really care for at that.
But no longer. The love is back.
That's the best feeling. Oh, and that bread looks amazing.

Love the bread one, BTW.

I have to agree with everyone, that bread pic is wonderful!

It's the fiddy.
Posted by: Sarah | January 07, 2009 at 11:43 PM
Yes, please, keep on clicking. I really like the last paperwhites shot--makes me want to reach through the monitor and touch them.
Posted by: tracy | January 07, 2009 at 11:46 PM
Your sure did click! Doesn't that feel so good? I haven't clicked with my camera in a while... I was away from home for a full week and didn't come away with one decent photo to show for it. It comes and it goes, eh?

UGH I almost bought paperwhites tonight. Now I wish I had! But thank you for sharing yours! :)
Posted by: Karen | January 08, 2009 at 12:23 AM
Mmm, yes, definitely back.
Posted by: kyrie | January 08, 2009 at 01:03 AM
I can smell the paperwhites. What lovely sun you've got! Happy 2009!
Posted by: Kathy | January 08, 2009 at 01:07 AM
I think your photos are always fab. I wish I could take good photos.

Glad to hear that your camera/photo mojo is back. Beautiful pictures. The bread made my mouth water.

Sometimes everything just falls into place. Lovely.

I never noticed it was gone but these are all very nice.
Posted by: Mama Urchin | January 08, 2009 at 09:11 AM
Nice pictures! Is that the boule from Artisan Bread in 5 Minutes a Day? I love how crazy-easy it is (and how crazy-delicious). I haven't been able to get as good a picture as you, though!
Now I'm off to find some paperwhites!
Posted by: Meg Evans | January 08, 2009 at 09:13 AM
Bravo -- great pictures -- spring is coming!!!
Posted by: Susie | January 08, 2009 at 09:33 AM
You're back into the groove! I know how great that feels. Wonderful photos.
Posted by: Linn | January 08, 2009 at 10:20 AM
Don't you love when that happens? I do.
Posted by: Tracy | January 08, 2009 at 10:58 AM
It's the new lens, of course. ;) These are really all beautiful, Erin. You really did a good job capturing the light in each of the different settings.
Posted by: Grace | January 08, 2009 at 11:04 AM
Stunning Erin, just stunning.
Also, I have that same blue Pyrex dish with the glass lid. It was my step-grandfather's from his bachelor days. I absolutely love it when I make things in it, like lasagne for one! So cute!
Posted by: Rachel | January 08, 2009 at 11:29 AM
great photos! is it your new lens?
Posted by: aprill | January 08, 2009 at 11:35 AM
Can you tell us about the bread?
Posted by: mary | January 08, 2009 at 11:48 AM
Good for you! Gorgeous pictures.
I love freshly cut pineapple as well. Absolutely delicious. Can't compare to freshly picked pineapple in the Dominican Republic, but close.
Posted by: Emily | January 08, 2009 at 11:48 AM
Hooray Erin! Photo love is the best :)
Posted by: rachel | buttons magee | January 08, 2009 at 11:59 AM
I love your paperwhites!
I know the feeling. I was very unproductive all summer, but recently I've been feeling creative again, and happy with my work!
Posted by: Ryan | January 08, 2009 at 12:04 PM
i love your photos!
Posted by: amandajean | January 08, 2009 at 01:13 PM
such a wonderful feeling to get the photomojo back. if you see mine around, could you send it back to me? (i didn't even know you had lost yours!)
Posted by: ani | January 08, 2009 at 02:25 PM
um, yeah. major click. the new lens?
Posted by: emily | January 08, 2009 at 03:17 PM
Love the paperwhites!
Posted by: amelia studio | January 08, 2009 at 04:22 PM
Click. Click. Click. You are off and running, my dear. This is good stuff.
Between the fresh bread and the flowers your house must smell lovely. :)
Posted by: chris carleton | January 08, 2009 at 05:12 PM
oh that's very good. It looks like you clicked from here! I agree, your house "looks" like it must smell really great!
Posted by: Account Deleted | January 08, 2009 at 05:25 PM
Oh, yes, these are all wonderful!
Posted by: Leslie | January 08, 2009 at 05:49 PM

Love these photos. What lens are you using?
Posted by: tamara hintze | January 08, 2009 at 07:17 PM
wonderful photos erin - looks like you had some great light and excellent props. i've been missing the camera love lately too, so i went out for a walk in the fog today with my camera. we didn't quite click, but we made progress.
Posted by: molly | January 08, 2009 at 08:42 PM
it's the light. and a shallow dof. they work magic.
Posted by: Alissa | January 08, 2009 at 08:43 PM
Beautiful pictures! The light is perfect. By the way...silly question...do you have the paint color/name on hand in the paper white pic? I am searching for a nice green wall color --I either go too bright or too dark!Thanks.
Posted by: Cindy | January 08, 2009 at 08:50 PM
That last one is breathtaking... some in focus, some out of focus.
Posted by: Ula | January 08, 2009 at 09:32 PM
