Taken at Xpresso, a new coffee shop in Ottawa that serves only fair trade and organic products. The red is actually from the large banquet seating across from the table.

    Oh this is luscious! That’s a gorgeous red, & I love the simplicity of your comp….. it really makes the shot! You should take this to them & let them know it’s for sale!!

  • That’s a good idea … actually while I was sitting there I noticed that they have local artwork where a portion of the proceeds goes towards a charity. I may work up the courage one of these days!! I want to go back because they also had a nice Buddha statue but there was someone sitting at that table so ….

    Lovely colours and composition, Caroline….and lovely new avatar! Getting braver….. not me, not yet!! LOL

  • Thanks Wendi …. well as for the avatar … you will notice that it is somewhat high key so it does hide some … ahem … things!!! I was just playing around with the new camera and I have a travel tripod that I bought months ago and never really used so was just playing around.

    Hey Caroline – you know that Im a fan of your coffee capture – love it – great idea about inquiring to put this image in the cafe – GO GIRL !!! – have wanted to do this myself with some of my coffee shot – have some cards out there but am working my way up to larger works – let me know how it goes !! Love the new gorgeous avatar :)

  • No word of a lie … I thought of you when I walked into this cafe. We are so lacking in the coffee here (especially fair trade) that I almost did a little dance of joy when I saw this new place!! Glad you like it … and yes one day I may work up the courage!!
