Coffee in the City .....




I have to admit - by the time I tinker around
with my coffee cup in an effort to
 capture the perfect - shallow-depth-of-field shot
my coffee has usually gone stone cold.

Wonderful wake-me-up shot (if only I'd seen this 4 hours ago;), there's a certain softness I love.

Dianne your shot looks perfect, I hope they at least heated up your coffee for you!

Cheers.

Ha ha. It takes some practice, I know that from a few sittings at my favorite cafe.

...it's a bit like that isn't it but a very decadent looking setting and lovely image. Hope you could still enjoy your coffee

Interesting and unusual cup handle. The coffee looks fine.

Hi, Dianne. Thanks for visiting St. Louis Daily Photo and for your kind comment.

I don't think I'd have the patience to carefully arrange a shot like this. It would smell too good not to tip the cup. You worked out the DOF perfectly, though.

It was worth it, Dianne.

This made me laugh Dianne, I drive whoever I'm having coffee with nuts looking for the right angle and composition. This is the perfect cafe au lait image.

So elegant! And agreed - life is definitely too short for bad coffee and bad books and bad chocolate..
