D283: Life Savers


  My plan today was to shoot some portraits but the client had to reschedule.   I was somewhat relieved because I was too tired to drive to the shoot location and the temperature today was in the 90's.  This had been a very long week.  I was laying across the bed eating gummy lifesavers thinking of another idea for my potd.   Ding!!!! light bulb came on.     I remember seeing this photo of 50 pieces of pez candy neatly align on a board like checkers.   What made this picture interesting was the photographer stood the candy  up on end.   The  photographer told me it took several hours to line up the candy in rows, no photoshop.   If you never had pez candy, they are no bigger than M&M's.  I wish I had a picture of the image, it was so worth the time and the lighting setup that she use was sweet! (no pun intended)  I didn't have 50 lifesavers but I had enough for a decent image.
