I took this shot for a friend who was sending her son off to basic training. They had a farewell get together and seeing as I had my camera I decided to take a few shots, always good to try to stretch your skills and learn your camera. The lighting was horrible and I was shooting with the onboard flash, usually not a good way to get super quality. While the lighting is of the deer in the headlights variety the sharpness was excellent at 200 ISO.

Afterward my lovely lady and I did what most married couples do when they have the time together. Go shopping. The secret life of a parent is not as scintillating as I imagined when I was a kid......
Again having camera in tow, and not being a super excited shopper I decided to try some shots wide open with my old Sigma 17-70 DC f2.8-4.5 and see how it performed on my new camera. considering the lighting and slow shutter speeds I was happy with what I got.

Not sure how I feel about the intrusion of the black box on the right but it is inline with or perpendicular to the other lines and I feel that it works. What would you have done?
The array of candy caught my eye, don't know how well I captured the singular among the chaotic mass, but it makes me hungry no matter what...
I like to capture the details of life, the texture as it were, it is how I remember things.
