    Wow, she must be hungry. I've been watching her for 20 minutes now, and she just keeps on eating. What is it about that plate btw.? Is it some kind of magic? It never seems to become empty

    Bob at some point Cynthia is going to make you take down her insatiable appetite loop but how did you link it?

    This is what happens when I wake up too early. It is a quick and dirty animated gif created with Photoshop CS4. I should have smoothed it out with tween frames, but decided the jerkiness probably was just fine (ok, I got lazy).

    Love the looks of satisfaction on her face. Is that girl a Yank or Brit, Bob? If a Yank, she certainly has the left hand use of the fork down pat.

    Actually, I often do the left hand bit, also. It's just more natural and efficient.

    She is a Yank,
    And she does the left handed fork thing as do I.
    I am known as an efficient eater.

    Thanks folks, it just couldn't be avoided.
    Also, Cynthia notes that she is color coordinated from her sweater to her pants to her purse to the pistachio macaroon and the plate it sits on.

    So, what did you use to put together the gif file? At first I simply thought it was part of a video loop from the 5DII.

    Too funny. I shudder to think what Sandy would do (to me) if I posted something similar...

    Good work!

    I took a series of images using continuous mode.
    Selected a number of them,
    loaded them into a stack of layers, aligned them since I was hand holding,
    cropped to size, opened the animations palette, created the frames, unveiling the appropriate layer for each frame. then saved as gif.

    Thanks, Don
    What I shouldn't divulge was that we all had a macaroon, but then Cynthia ordered a second.

    Thanks Bob a lot of work when you have video at your fingertips but I guess more fun in photoshop.
