Great reflection, love the cup too!

awarewriter said...

Very good eye for composition. I love the wood cup and saucer.

Woody said...

What a cool cup! The table is polished to a mirror finish yielding a great reflection.

This is a great shot. I love the way the wood grain runs through the reflection. Nice capture! Kathy

VioletSky said...

Coffeedoff: that cup was so cool! I wondered at first why the waiter was bringing two creamers, then realized they were the cups

VioletSky said...

Jum: thanks. the grain showed up very well, much better than I imagined it would.

VioletSky said...

Woody: very interestingly shaped cup, for sure. it is a brand new restaurant, so nothing is marred, yet!

VioletSky said...

Kathy: thanks, that wood grain was a bonus, I was concentrating on the shape of the cup

Rebecca said...

Interesting. But the big question is can you actually drink from it without spilling it on yourself!

The Green Stone Woman said...

It would be a strange experience to drink from that cup. It would be hard to keep your lip straight. I think I would contort my whole face.

VioletSky said...

Rebecca: it is actually just as easy to drink out of as a perfectly formed circled cup.

VioletSky said...

Nora: it was a little strange - you keep wanting to turn the cup to drink from the far end opposite the handle, but no dribbling or making faces happened.

Funny and cool, I love it!

Serendipity said...

The reflection is perfect - and that cup is funky!

James said...

Great reflection and I like the cup. I think there are more less obvious reflections too.

VioletSky said...

Cielequimper: the coffee cups amused us greatly, at the time, too! thanks.

VioletSky said...

Serendipity: thanks. I'm attracted to funky.

VioletSky said...

James: thank you. you are right - and I cropped out a chandelier to concentrate on the cup

Ebie said...

It is a great capture! The table is spot clean and I could see the grain of the wood.

Bravo!

Crafty Green Poet said...

that's a very cool photo, nice cup and saucer too

VioletSky said...

Ebie: thanks. (shiny new table and neat eaters!)

VioletSky said...

Juliet: thanks. that cup and saucer was quite the artistic piece

quilly said...

Interesting cup. I'd probably spill my coffee trying to figure out "level". You were right about the elegance though -- very classy reflection.

VioletSky said...

Quilly: it is actually level, just stretched out on one side, like having a wide spout!

Oh..very clever.....@:}
