Tea is a cup of life…

For Texture Tuesday with Kim Klassen.   Featuring Kim’s “Urban” texture.

Tea is nought but this:
First you heat the water,
Then you make the tea.
Then you drink it properly.
That is all you need to know.

  1. Speaking as “the hand” in the image, no, there was no tripod. In fact, the whole thing was shot very unobtrusively. The tea didn’t even get cold! (And Sherry’s hands are much more photogenic, but she needed both for her camera! But thanks for the compliment.)

  2. No tripod, Denise. I never have one when I need one and always have one when I don’t ;-). I would have used the Lewis quote if there had been a book in the picture.

  3. Sherry – I love this! Oh, that I would have nails that looked that good. Did you use a tripod for this? Nice work! (Pass me the java, though) Oh, and a great C. S. Lewis quote: There is nothing like a good book and a big cup of tea.

  4. Hi Sherry…your photo is just so dreamy…love that curved text too… I have been so swamped with family matters here that i just have not had any time to participate in texture tuesdays….that has got to change!!

  5. This picture caught my eye immediately at Kim Klassen’s Cafe. I absolutely love the picture and the serene quality. It is totally my cup of tea 🙂

  6. You’re photos and techniques are great, Sherry, but what really sets you apart is the ability to match them with the perfect (usually uncommon) quote! Keep it up. Can’t wait to see what’s next!

Let's connect...I love to read your thoughts...thanks for visiting!
