Photography Soup (August 22, 2008)

With all the Photokina noise, the Photography Soup is more of a weekly than a daily show. But fear not, once Photokina is over, this will be posted on a regular basis!

Flickr Group Member Showcase: Fazia_
The second brave Flickr member to submit photos to this blog's photo pool was Fazia_. With lots of great outdoors pictures, it was not an easy choice to pick our favorite! Ultimately the lighting and the mood of the low tide at Raritan Bay won us over and is our favorite picture from this flickr member's submissions.

For more on this segment, be sure to check the introduction and the group's flickr pool. All are invited to join and submit pictures, and each person will eventually be featured in this segment, in chronological picture-submission-order.
