This little girl came in while I was eating lunch today......the lunch wasn't all that great.....but it was a lot like Mrs Rupert's "Home Cooking"......

The Cowgirl was just fine and easily agreed for a few shots......Not studio grade, but at ISO 12,800, I'm not complaining!

You'd better hope Mrs Rupert isn't scoping your posts.

That's a very nice portrait at such a high ISO.

Nice candid Rupert - lunch well it's a fine shot if not a fine meal.

Cute Girl in a Hat = what I miss about Texas.

A can of Soup may not the only can of something Mrs. Rupert opens up on you if she reads this.

You know I am always kidding......but not about the meal! Mrs Rupert hates to cook, so I do a lot of it at home. Honest Injun, I have seen Mrs Rupert serve me a meal like this more than once.....and not being a particular eater, I never complain, I just eat it. Complaining to Mrs Rupert is like complaining to's just plain not healthy!

The Cowgirl.....not the best IQ but for a quick snap at ISO 12,800 it still amazes me....not as much for the shot itself, but to think that only a short time ago this was unheard of. What lies ahead? Makes you wonder, doesn't it? I won't be around in 20-30 years, but how amazing that is going to be! Even in my best imaginations, I am sure to fall short of the realities ahead.

Best Regards!

At ISO 6400.....she has teeth!
