Perspective Practice

One thing I do love about four-day weeks is the excitement that follows when you reach Friday. Today’s photography practice photo was taken on Sunday. Below I’ll discuss the information about the photo.
Before I share the photo, I just want to remind all my wonderful readers that you can always comment and add in your two cents on whatever I write about on Monday, Wednesdays and Fridays. I’ve been more active on WordPress compared to Twitter but I always enjoy following people back on social media.

I took this photo last winter and I have used this photo countless times as a header photo for my blogs.

Backstory

This photo was taken on Sunday morning, not long after I poured the last of my fresh coffee into my pink 16 ounce mug. The mug was a holiday gift from my Mother and sister, who gave me the mug along with a tea bag set. They knew that I had been transitioning away from drinking coffee and this photo was a last hurrah before sipping the last of my coffee.

I was introduced to coffee in 2012 and slowly became addicted to being a frequent flyer at Starbucks and other coffee shops. It wasn’t until 2018, did I notice that my physical and mental body wasn’t reacting well to coffee. After finally using up the last of my freshly grounded coffee, I am now starting to remove coffee from my options of caffeine.

It was last fall that I realized that it wasn’t caffeine that was throwing off my bodily functions but that it was just coffee and the added sweeteners. Hence the transition to teas and honey. Which, I can easily handle. A few days ago, I posted about how I love tea when its foggy or raining. That hasn’t changed.

I’ve taken photos before of tea or coffee in my mugs here at home. The last one I did, is pictured above and is a wonderful black and white photo. This one, is a little lighter in content and has a slight perspective change.

Note the perspective difference between the photo up top and the one below. Since I was working with a taller cup, I had to adjust where my camera was.

I also considered turning the handles inward towards each other, but decided against it.

Thanks for checking out this week’s photography practice post. I hope you enjoy this last weekend of January as we get ready for the Chinese New Year!

Cheers,
