Reston, Virginia - Wine and Food Festival

It's harvest time and wine festivals are in full swing the world over!  Virginia you say?!  Yes, Virginia is for "wine" lovers!  There were over 20 Virginia wineries represented at this 2 day festival in Reston, VA..  We bought a ticket, grabbed our souvenir wine glasses and began to taste!

I had decided to bring my camera and concentrate on creating narrow depth of field images.  So I used fstops  in the 3.2 to 5.8 range.  That meant I would have lots of blur in front and behind what I chose to focus on.  A great look for close ups!  If you are using a small point and shoot camera you can use your macro or "flower" setting.
Aren't these wine glass huggies cute?!  Find yours at Shop Linda's Line.

There was food to taste also:  Balsamic vinegars, cheeses and tortilla soup!  Surprise! Surprise!   Mary Amons of the Real Housewives of D.C. was there to cook tortilla soup and tell her fans about a website she is promoting: Cancer Schmancer Movement  Lots of information on this website about how to shop wisely and avoid cancer causing products.  Check it out!

Mary Amons and my friend, Brenda, a big fan of the show.  The soup was fabulous!  Mary can cook!
