I really had trouble...

...with the Daily Shoot assignment today. "Use strong converging lines in a photograph today." I tried several things, including some suggestions from friends, and didn't come up with anything I really liked. I ended up with only one shot that I thought I could even share. 
I used my diffuser panel as the white surface, and bounced my external flash off the ceiling. ISO 400; ss 1/200; f/6.3. The vignetting occurred as a result of the lens, or conditions, or something. I did not add in it post-processing.

We had a young family over to dinner this evening. It was a delightful evening, and we just talked and talked and talked! The kids all had a wonderful time together (they have a 3 year old and an almost 2 year old), and some of our boys even provided some musical entertainment! The lasagna came our perfect, and everyone enjoyed the evening. Now it's time for some wind down...and tomorrow I'm going to finish that scarf I was working on yesterday. 'Can't wait!

You know, you don't always have to follow the daily shoot. Sounds like you had a lot of other things you could have shot, like the dinner, yum. Maybe the entertainment, maybe you guest would have allowed you to take a picture of one of the toddlers. Those are always great shots.
However, I admire your dedication, with all of that going on you still managed to take a picture for TDS. Not your best shot but the lighting is good.

i struggled with this assignment too. I actually have been feeling stressed about the project lately and i am worried i'll come to the point of giving up. So i'll probably break my rules sometimes, like not follow DS on certain days, but you know still make sure to shoot something good and post :)
