37 degrees this morning in Chaumont, NY, according to my thermometer. Up at 5:45am, photographed my coffe at 6:00, guitar in hand at 6:10, good solid practice for two hours.
Well, it's day ten since I began this blog. I also opened a Facebook account about the same time. Between here and there I intend to upload at least a photo a day. One of the joys I experience every morning is the visual delight of pouring my first cup of coffee. Day in and day out I find it visually appealing. Just the color of it and fluidity as it flows into the cup. The morphous shapes of the light on the surface, moving around as the cup fills. The way the sunlight sometimes highlights the steam, the bubbles that sometimes float on the surface. What a wonderful way to begin the day! Today is not the first time I've photographed coffee, but it's the first time since the start of this blog. I present the entire photo as well as a detail cropped from the full frame. The bubbles are particularly interesting with their reflections. (A macro lens would be the best way to shoot them.)
Now I am off to replace a livingroom carpet in one of my Clay St. apartments. I have a nice young couple who will be taking the place Monday. My celebrtity brother Al will cut it in for me. He's pretty darn good with carpeting.
