I wanted to get a really good, "There's nothing to eat in this house," shot, but this is what I got. I know I'm going to get hit for the white label on the right side of the image, but I like the slight motion blur effect on her hand.

This was taken, obviously, from inside my ever-so-dirty fridge. My model was an incredibly good sport about everything. I had to empty out a shelf or two, then place a 60w light bulb in there, with its fixture (not an easy fit), then place my camera in there too. The remote shutter attachment and desktop tripod came in handy :)

Slight levels adjustment, darkened a bit to try and soften that label, USM, and crop/resize for uploading.

at least this is a different view, from inside a fridge, of a subject that has cropped up many times in much less creative ways in this challenge. Self time, I assume?

Great shot! I like the way her eyes are turned, almost furtively.

Nice point of view in this photo. The bottle of water is very much over exposed which takes away from an otherwise very good photo.

Go for the water or else you become part of the 65 percent of fat asses in america and 31percent of them are the super size meal a deal diet and have gone obese. Give your kid the water she will thank you 20 years from now. Besides it might save you a dentist bill later too.
