Let the sunshine in

Scenes from a cafe 1
As I type from my "igloo" :D, I think I am getting a wee bit tired of this, what weathermen are calling, "Arctic wave" that socked us in the last few days. These images from a tony, cozy cafe on one late winter afternoon, are my antidote to the chill outside.

My favorite pick-me-up: freshly brewed coffee with a touch of roast, a touch sweet and topped with dollops of whipped cream. Java-heaven!!!!!:)

Love the angle of the shots and that shadow in the 2nd one is AWESOME!!!!

Beautiful shots...terrific lighting. Goes to show you artistic photos aren't dependent on magnificent subjects! You're inspiring me...

a girl after my own heart....my favorite coffee shop (a little hut in KS called Baristas)..put whipped cream with a little chocolate covered coffee bean on top. If that doesn't get your heart pitter-pattering, I don't know what will.

Great shots that shout winter!

Hi Moi, it has been a while since I last visited and I have spent a while looking at the older posts of your travels and reaaly enjoying them.
Being from Africa I like the fact that we have a lot of sunshine and that Old Man Winter is a lot kinder to us.
Those scenes of the snow are beautiful, but a splash of colour would make it look more cheery.
That bride must have been freezing - what couples do for wedding photos :)

I love photograpy myself, and you are an inspiration! Your pictures came out so nice! It warmed me up just looking at them!

Jen said...

Ah, yes. Old man winter - it does take some getting used to. But the pristine white is something I don't get tired of myself. :)

And I, like you, also take solace in a good cup of coffee on a cold day!
