I love coffee as much as the next guy, but I had some out of date coffee lying around and decided this was the best way to use it. I had seen these coffee splash photos doing the rounds on Flickr for a long time and wanted to try it.
…And there was a horrendous downpour of torrential rain. Typical! A friend who enjoys shooting as much as I do visits and we can rarely leave shelter. I had made a list, too, and most of it involved being outdoors. Oh well, I guess this means he has to come back. Muhaha.
As you can imagine with Rick visiting (if you follow him at all), there was food, there was coffee, and there were photos with flash (and my lightbulb moment of realising I have to get away from ISO 100 when shooting with flash). Oh, and a wolf thrown in for good measure.
I clocked this amazing journal on The Paperie whilst I was casually browsing stationery (does anyone else casually browse stationery?). Last year I got bit by the travel bug after getting on my first flight in 5 years (which followed with a trip to New York, then Florida and onto Belfast, all in the space of 4 weeks!). This year it looks to be a busy one with work, though I plan on getting away at some point, even if it is to a European city for a long weekend. Owning my camera has definitely surged an interest in travel for me; not the relaxed, beach holidays that you typically go on to recharge your batteries, but the rich-in-culture adventures that make me and my 5D explode with excitement. I’m going to fill this journal with notes and postcards and everything else.
