2010 is International Coffee Year in our house. Granted, we love coffee, we drink a lot of it and we have a little Gaggia-shaped shrine in the kitchen where we worshop at the altar of coffee.
It all started at the beginning of the year when I realised my phone took rather good-quality photos, I snapped whatever was at hand which usually turned out to be coffee as I tend to drink it wherever I go. Well, it was either that or the ladies room and, believe me, I'd prefer not to see many of them again, especially one in a little hut in Italy, but less about that……
My long-suffering friend Andrew tended to be on the receiving end of many of the photos, along with a short text where I would basically show off, boasting about the latest coffee-drinking venue…. Chamonix….. Geneva…. Lausanne… .Bruges….. Derby Station…… Some of the photos were rather nice so I decided to take coffee photos all year, then put them together in a montage at the end of it and celebrate with, well, a cup of coffee. Of course I had to set rules, all photos to be taken with the phone, only good coffee allowed, you know the kind of thing.
Above is the work in progress, a montage using all the photos on my hard drive and the original, taken last week in Macon, France, where the coffee scored 4 out of 10. Below are other coffee shots, I intent to take hundreds of coffee photos for the final montage….
