"Think Like a Coffee Table Book" Photos

I've heard from a few folks that the like the phrase "Think like a coffee table book." These are photos that capture little slices of life and memories in the park, rather than the usual grand images we like to take.

Just little detail shots that may not have been the biggest part of your trip, but are still important to the whole story. With that in mind, I'll kick it off with this one.

Aw, I love that mug! : Going along with that theme....

Here's something I captured which I think qualifies as "think like a coffee table book"

Cute cookie jar (I think), Halloween merchandise at the parks.

Ha ha, did you use the excuse that you were all off duty?
I agree with you - I really like that pic of Joe's too

Hey William! Awesome thread!

Cause it's our favorite time of the year to be at the lodge!
And my favorite time of the night to be alone in the lodge!
Always feels like home. . .

Glad you like it. I know we have a lot of threads by camera brand, but I tend to like threads by subject. Doesn't matter which camera brand you use.

Love the Christmas decorations in the lodge, too.
