COFFEE & CREAM STIRRED NOT SHAKEN by 


THIS SHOT CAME FROM A PHOTO OF MY CHARCOAL GRILL WITH ROARING FLAMES SHOOTING HIGH. I THOUGHT THE COLORS AND SHAPE REMINDED ME OF WHAT A CUP OF “COFFEE & CREAM STIRRED NOT SHAKEN”, WOULD LOOK LIKE. BUT, NOT QUITE MIXED TOTALLY. I HAD TO QUIT DRINKING COFFEE WAY BACK IN THE LATE 1970’S. FOR SOME REASON, WHENEVER I DRINK COFFEE WITH MILK AND SUGAR, I GET THE DAMN HICKUPS. I WAS RECENTLY REMINDED OF THIS FACT BACK IN 2009, WHEN I HAD TO HAVE SURGERY. WELL, SINCE I WASN’T ASKED TO FILL OUT MENU OF CHOICES, I WAS SENT COFFEE WITH MY FIRST THREE MEALS. SO, I DRANK THEM. HOWEVER, AFTER EACH CUP I WOULD GET THE HICKUPS FOR ABOUT 4 HOURS. AFTER THE THIRD CUP, I TOLD THE CAFITERIA PERSONELL TO NOT SEND ME ANYMORE COFFEE. TEA, OR WHAT EVER ELSE THEY HAD, BUT NO COFFEE. THAT WAS THE LAST TIME I DRANK ANY AND WILL BE THE LAST TIME I EVER DRINK ANY, COFFEE. I SHOT THIS FLAME IN MY BARBEQUE GRILL WHILE THE FLAMES WERE JUST STARTING TO DIE DOWN SOME. I USED MY CANON EOS KISS REBEL 300D AND MY CANON 75-300 AF TELEPHOTO F:5.6:1 LENS. IF I REMEMBER RIGHT, THE LENS WAS SET ON 200MM. I DIDN’T WANT TO GET SO CLOSE THAT I DAMAGED MY LENS OR CAMERA FROM THE HEAT, BUT I WANTED TO BE CLOSE ENOUGH TO GET THEN ENTIRE IMAGE THAT I WAS LOOKING FOR AT THAT TIME. I PLAYED WITH THE LENS, ZOOMING IT IN AND OUT, UNTIL I GOT WHAT I FELT WAS THE RIGHT FRAMING.

    I’m like you and I used to get hiccups for hours too but now, as soon as I get hiccups, all I need to do is have a spoon of ice cream and they are gone, instantly. It works for others that I have told too. Try it and you may be able to enjoy coffee again. Cheers, Graham.

  • THANKS GRAHAM, I USED TO USE ONE TEASPOON OF SUGAR AND THEY WENT AWAY. BUT, THE LAST THREE TIMES I GOT THEM, I WAS IN THE HOSPITAL AND SINCE I’M DIABETIC, THEY WOULDN’T GIVE ME A SPOON OF SUGAR, NOT EVEN A PACKET. NOW, I’M AN ICE WATER JUNKIE, IF IT’S NOT ICE COLD, I DON’T DRINK IT. I WASN’T A BIG COFFEE FAN ANYWAYS. THANKS, BOB ;)
