  1. This would make a great feature portrait in a coffee shop! Nice theme on a partially tasted cup of coffee, it makes one want to have a drink! The glass of water is a nice contrast and the woodgrain give the whole picture a "flow".

    I thought it looks like partially tasted too. Well... the truth is... it actually came to me like this. It's a long black (double shots of espresso with little bit of hot water). there were more coffee form on the surface, but it will quickly gone as I took few photos. One on the side is apparently made by the drip from the machine when it was taking off. Some shop gives you with just a coffee and hot water in separate little jar. I will take a shot when I encounter that kind again.

    This may become long term project but for my personal coffee table book theme.

    Next shot will be a cake that go with this coffee.

  3. Gorgeous play of light on the glass, water, cup and coffee. Great on the dark table surface! Cheers Ben! Feels almost like having your cake and eating too :) applies to both this and previous photograph!
