Frivolous Friday! Free Portraits, Spiders & a Really Fun Lunch!

It’s Frivolous Friday!

Thought I would share some of the fun I squeezed in this week (in between all my portrait sessions and retouching work.)

Yep, this happened #1:

I had an absolute blast at my Free Halloween Portrait Session again this year!

My 10th year of giving back to the community!!!!

Yep, this happened #2:

Had an up close encounter with a tarantula!

A friend called to tell me a Tarantula was walking across her backyard and would I want to photograph it.

OF COURSE!  I grabbed my camera and my LONG ZOOM lens (so I didn’t have to get too close…because EEK!) And headed to her house!

These spiders sure are beautiful in a spooky kind of way.

Did you know Tarantulas are harmless to humans (except for a painful bite) and their mild venom is weaker than a typical bee’s….?

Insects are their main prey, but they also target bigger game,  including frogs,  toads, and mice.

A tarantula doesn’t use a web to ensnare prey, though it may spin a trip wire to signal an alert when something approaches its burrow.

These spiders grab with their appendages, inject paralyzing venom, and dispatch their unfortunate victims with their fangs.

They also secrete digestive enzymes to liquefy their victims’ bodies so that they can suck them up through their straw-like mouth openings.

After a large meal, the tarantula may not need to eat for a month.

I hope that didn’t just gross you out so much you won’t eat for a month….oopsies….

Yep, this happened #3:

Tried a brand new restaurant and I’d HIGHLY recommend it!

The back story is that I read that the old Split Pea Windmill Restaurant next to the Carlsbad Flower Fields

had been revamped into an amazing Food Hall and couldn’t resist going to check it out.

And WOW it is amazing!  So beautiful and hip inside with every kind of food you can imagine….

From Lobster Rolls to Tacos, Poke Bowls to Thai and everything in between.

I went with the yellow curry bowl and it was soooooo good.

(And so plentiful I took a lot home and enjoyed another entire meal of it – so double yay!)

The hall is arranged with lots of different kind of seating including an outdoor patio – so it would be amazing to meet a whole bunch of friends and spend an afternoon or an evening.

They have a few table games (skee ball!!!) And everywhere you look is some really fun art – the tables had funny

quotes on them so we had to walk around reading them all….ha! (Clearly doesn’t take much to amuse me!)

Here’s a link to the Windmill Food Court’s website if you want more info

And guess what else is cool – it’s going to be a wedding venue!  How fun would that be?

Here’s what it will look like -and when you book that venue make sure the next phone call is to your Favorite Wedding Photographer
