193/365 – Coffee and Cream

I am constantly fascinated with how liquids behave, especially drops into liquids. I don’t think it is something that I will ever get used to or grow sick of seeing.

I am not a huge coffee drinker despite the fact that I own a coffee maker (left to me by my sister-in-law). However when my dad was in town he bought some coffee and creamer, and so I decided today I needed to drink so. Plus it was just a good day for it. I recently saw a picture on Flickr of a drop of cream into coffee and so I wanted to give it a try. I know it isn’t the most interesting or spectacular image, but I am pretty happy with the results. I may upload a couple of others, at different “‘stages” of the drop.

I used a SB-600 on camera, bounced off a wall, but unfortunately cannot remember what I had it set at. Any feedback would be appreciated, I am always looking to improve!

9/52 – Calm

Well, I have decided to try to keep up the 52 week project after all. But, I am not going to be upset with myself if I don’t get a shot for a week. And, I am going to allow myself to let them count for my 365 as well if need be.

It snowed all night and we have a couple of inches on the ground. I thought it fitting that I would have a nice warm cup of tea, and I liked how my hands looked around the mug, so I thought that it would be a good self-portrait for the week.
