52frames – Week 18 – Dark

coffee time

Dark Roast
This week the 52frames challenge was “dark”. For anyone who knows me, coffee would be the natural subject, for this weeks challenge, I love coffee, but it wasn’t the first thing that came to mind, in fact, nothing came to mind. I wasn’t sure what I was going to photograph, I was stumped, but open to inspiration.

I was getting close to the deadline without any great inspiration, this was going to require some thought! It didn’t help that I was away from home, and had to do some creative thinking about what I would do when I did get home, and into my own space.

I had enjoyed setting up last week’s still-life with the dried flowers, so I started with the idea of building another still life, I have dark wood background and board, that would be perfect for the theme of Dark. I knew I was getting closer! I mentally went through my cupboards, what would be my subject, nothing came quickly to mind.

I knew from past experience, I was on the right track, and something, some idea would form, I just needed to give it a little time. Sometimes if I struggle too hard on these ideas I get nowhere, I have to leave it to percolate (pun intended). As we were driving back from Saskatchewan I sat quietly watching the scenery when the idea of using coffee as the subject came to mind. The dark roast beans Bill loves for his coffee, and a cup of espresso would be perfect. I could hardly wait to get home!

The other two images that I like, but did not get submitted to the challenge. Which one do you like?
