Day 35—Gung Hay Fat Choy +1

I thought tomorrow was Chinese New Year and I discovered it was yesterday. Since I had not taken any photos today, I found some stale fortune cookies, cracked a couple open and took a few snaps. I tried the bounce flash in the darkened dining room; then I tried no flash and turning on the dining room light. I didn’t reduce the intensity of the flash so the flash photos were a bit overexposed and the one I took without the flash and just the room lighting was a bit underexposed. I liked that version a little better and increased the exposure slightly in Aperture. The fortune wasn’t particularly good but I flipped it over and learned the Chinese word for “delicious” and I might just play the lucky numbers in the lotto tomorrow.
