2014 01-10 Morning Jo by Watertown, South Dakota, photographer Scott Shephard

This photo is entirely serendipitous. As I was filling my coffee cup from the airpot I keep next to my computer, I noticed the intricate pattern of bubbles that each jet of coffee was creating. I quickly grabbed my camera and took a few photos. A perfectionist would have spend more time in an attempt to get a more artistic pattern of bubbles. But I had things to do and I needed my coffee fix.

  1. Scott,
    Thank you for sharing your photos everyday. I look forward to them each morning and I especially like the coffee photo from this morning!
    You have such a great talent!
    Have a great weekend!

    • Thank you, Grace. It’s interesting how something simple and easily overlooked ends up being interesting if we have the right light and framing. And keep up the good work on your blog. You have some amazing things there.

  2. Everything cheri & Grace said…I just loved it because it was so simple, yet artistic and creative. Next time dribble or swirl cream or milk….

    • Coffee is also something I “see” everyday but never looked at it in such a beautiful way. I love my coffee and now will add the visual as to the reasons why!

    • Thanks CRE. I think that cream would probably break up the bubbles. But it’s certainly worth the effort. I’ll let you know if I get something good out of it – other than another cup of great java. 🙂
