  1. Great idea – well executed. I would have put them horizontally side by side myself but vertical works.

    • Thanks for the feedback Adrian, I was contemplating putting them horizontal but decided to go with initial instinct! We live and learn πŸ™‚ Thanks again.

      Tomato, tomahto…what I LOVE about this piece is that it glows like dark amber and the sun rising; a perfect warming way to start the day;o)

  5. I like this even though I can think of several hundred things that are much better to start off the morning with than a jolt of caffeine. Things like a nice hot shower, a good newspaper (of which San Diego doesn’t have one anymore), strawberry pancakes, banana pancakes, blueberry pancakes, plain old pancakes………….lol

    I like this, it’s like still art photography. There’s a phrase for this type of photography right? Ya know it Rivers?

      Oh yeah, espresso in cups that small is a daily occurrence in Sicilia! Ask for anything bigger and its the look of horns! πŸ™‚
