A Cup of Coffee and a Book (24)

Trying to create another strand to my storytelling, I hope eventually to have a book held in the hands, but focussing will be tricky as I’m not holding the camera, but mounting it on a tripod and using timed shutter release, and I don’t have a lens with reliable manual focus, but I live in hope!

So, here’s a start

Linked to Isolation Photo Project at Jeff Sinon’s here


  1. Nice! But what are you pointing out?

  2. Oh, yes! That’s a nice idea 🙂 🙂 Creates a bit more interest. Good luck with the next step though!

  3. Are you pointing to where a scooter nearly ran you down or waiting for that blkoke to walk by and trip him over 😀 😀

  4. Endlessly inventive. Good luck with hands. Most of my recent beach photos feature feet, but that’s because I can’t see the screen in the midday sun! However, they do add a (vaguely) human touch. What next??

  5. Great attempt. I liked the composition here.

  6. One of your photos? I am sure I remember it. It worked well, and is a nice addition to this series.
    Best wishes, Pete.

  7. Nice one, Sue. Good luck with your project. 😃

  8. Leading lines: all roads lead to the road. You’ll probably have to work out your manual focus by measuring distance and experimenting with apertures to get the correct depth of field. It’ll be worth the effort, I’m sure.

    Oh gosh .. sounds like a challenge and a half you’ve set yourself Sue ! This one already looks tricky .. and a good one!

  10. A good idea, Sue. Nice to have something human in the shot. I can imagine you telling a story about the image.

  11. how fabulous . . . and your book looks lovely too.

    On your tricky challenge ahead does your camera have the option to be controlled by a phone? Mine does so you can manage focusing from afar, although having said that it could be tricky for the fingers
