I'll Take Mine Black - Project Black #2


How could I not do a coffee post when the current color theme is black??? It felt kinda strange putting a steaming cup of coffee into my light tent. Oh the things we do to get the shot. And the steam didn't even show up. So you'll have to use your imagination and know that this mug was piping hot! Pour yourself a cup and enjoy.

Please visit Anna's site to see her Project Black posts as well as the links to all the other participants. There's some good stuff out there!

If I drank coffee....this week, I would want it black too! I'M FIRST!

And in a Starbuck's mug too. Was going to say "cool" shot but guess I should say "hot" shot since it was steaming. I miss Starbucks. When I lived in Arizona with my niece, we did grocery shopping every Friday and I always treated each of us to a Starbuck's Mocha Frappachino. It was my grand extravagance and a thing of delight and yummocity.

anna was only first by a second... she snuck in while I was being wordy.

Anna said...

Awesome! I really could use a cup like that right about now... Although I would prefer it iced it's kinda hot here right now...

Dillo said...

Starbucks? Soylent Green is made out of p.... Wait, where did that come from? Great shot!

Karen of Sillymonkeez said...

Black coffee!! What a great idea!

Karly said...

Mmmmm.... :)

Carletta said...

Great shot! I'll have one with cream.

Black coffee! For years I drank my coffee straight up, from the pot, then I started having stomach problems. I had to learn to like my coffee with a "softener" to neutralize the acids.

Melli said...

AH! I was expecting to find THIS at Mar's place... not Robert's place! Did you buy that mug JUST for this shot? Tell the truuuuuth.... ;) It's wonderful!

Oh, now that is my weakness, but with milk!! :0)

June said...

I drink mine black too. This photo reminded me I haven't had my morning cup or two or three yet. Off I go...

Britt said...

I love this! It looks even better than a real Starbucks add!

Jeanne Damoff said...

Mmmm. Coffee! I just finished my morning bucket o' latte.

Congratulations on one year with Lily! So many adventures yet to come. I wouldn't trade parenthood for anything.

JC said...

First... happy one year with your Lily and many, many more!

Terrific shot... love the absoluteness of the b&w and the coffee, of course. It was also a hoot reading your comments here... everyone is kinda lively... maybe it's the coffee ;-)

juliana said...

your photos are always original and of high quality... love this, and the camera reflection!

Christy said...

Great shot -- I have that mug, too! It was the one mug I brought with me to Philly and I drank tea out of it every day.

kjpweb said...

My kind of Coffee! Black, hot and strong! Love the POV and the take on Project Black!
Cheers, Klaus

I stopped drinking my coffee black years ago, but that photo is enough to get me to start again.

ilanadavita said...

My favorite first thing in the morning.

Jenty said...

LOL, love the shot, even without the steam

Dianne said...

the steam might not be there BUT the ring of coffee bubbles or coffee goodness really stands out

this shot is worthy of a billboard. actually better than most billboards.

Rebecca said...

VERY nice!

Willow said...

I didn't even think of taking a coffee photo because I take mine (in the British terminology) white.

Great photo!

Bunny Trails said...

Excellent shot . . . even missing the steam. I'm not a coffee drinker, but I love the aroma, which I can almost smell. They should use your photo for an ad. My sister works there . . . although she's not in marketing, so she likely wouldn't be of much help. :D

Robin said...

Nicely done :). I DO have an upcoming "black" photo featuring my MUG, but not my coffee--half and half leaves it caramel colored, not black.

I can almost see that steam, Robert :).

photowannabe said...

Black is the only way to go except when I spring for a grande latte. Ummm makes me want one now.

Mishelle Lane Photography said...

This is my favorite out of all that I've seen to date!

Cris said...

Yes for coffee drinkers! Great capture.

Dorothy said...

This might be my favorite of your Project Black shots!
