Some photos of a past meetup with my photography mates! The idea was to explore downtown Richmond at night, taking pictures of some landmarks: the Main Street Station, the Monroe Building, Virginia State Capitol and the Carpenter Theater/Center Stage. I love this kind of events, because it pushes me to think out of the box! And specially the type of photography that you have your camera on a tripod firing long exposures... it just gives you time to think what to do next! It's very relaxing actually, and so much fun!

Another american classic: the chocolate brownie! This flat and square chunk of chocolate goodness, a cross between a cookie and a cake. This recipe here is more the fudgy type and the funny thing about the brownies is that you can combine different nuts, chocolate chips and dried fruit! Always a different batch! This time I add some hazelnuts, dark chocolate chips and dried cherries. 1 square, 1 glass of milk. enjoy!

I'm so tired of this cold weather, bah!.. I can't wait for spring, for the birds and flowers!
Sooo, last weekend I went to a baby shower; my first baby shower! I can scratch from my list of "things-I-would-like-to-try-in-EUA"! ahah
My labmate is pregnant and she invited me for her baby shower. Abigail is the name of her up coming child :)
Basically, the baby shower is a way to gather your family and friends (and dogs), and talk about pregnancy, the child birth and babies. Intense!!! There is food for everyone and, of course, some presents for the upcoming baby! Very interesting gifts by the way: the parents had a gift registration at a store that is environmental friendly, so a wet/dry bag, a cloth diaper sprayer, some reusable diapers, butt organic wipers solution... oh my, it was a interesting lesson!
At the end, we played a game, where we had to associate some words related to babies with candy names (Check the photo at the end).
