The acoustics in our hotel meeting room today were not ideal.
Microphones popped. Feedback screamed in our ears. And still other presenters were impossible to hear.
But in the back of the room, we were soothed by the delicate clink and tinkle of…
Although located high above us in the ballroom, their sway in the air-conditioned breeze was both soothing and unexpected.
Wonder how my living room would look sporting one?

It’s been almost a year since The Egg dared to ask:
Why do so many people attempt to photograph the food they are eating?
I argued amateur attempts often make food and drink look — well — unappetizing. Comments in response to my post disagreed.
But I did want to share an example of some exceptional professional food photography…by Lincoln Barbour.
These four strips of bacon on a flat top grill were shot on location at Fuller’s Restaurant for a Portland Monthly feature on the city’s best breakfast.
Look at the color, the lighting, the composition. This is no simple shot of half-eaten eggs and bacon on a plate —
This is art.
That’s all I’m saying.
