A Cup of Coffee and a Book (34)

Not great light today, so I thought I would show a couple of books on an abandoned theme. The image in the open book is from ‘Beauty in Decay’ published by Carpet Bombing Culture

Linked to Isolation Photo Project at Jeff Sinon’s here


  1. I really like this one a lot, as the books feature the sort of photos you love, and take so well yourself.
    Best wishes, Pete.

  2. I like the ambience in this photo. And it just seems so very you to be having a coffee and looking through a book about Beauty in Decay.

  3. Hope this isn’t a metaphor for how you’re feeling 😦 ?

  4. This one really works. I think, mainly, because it is the picture of what you see. Makes it very personal.

  5. I like this one especially well. The tighter frame more crowded with subject pieces gives an appealing composition, and I find the crumpled, tumbled containers a nice addition to the cup motif. Nice!

  6. I am even more certain that you are camped in the British Library, London. What a collection of books you keep presenting 🙂

  7. I love the colors of the little objects on the right. What are they?

  8. I was worrying a bit about your library fine, too, Sue! 🙂 🙂 Really like this one. The subdued colours and the little pop of red…

  9. I agree with Lignum. Very you. Both books look interesting.


  10. Again such imagination, and variety that is a simple theme. As for our library books we have had the return date on all we have at home automatically forwarded to June 1st, surely we’ll be over it by then….

  11. ooh yes Sue, a superb one 🙂 and very clever addition of your abandoned pods

  12. These go very well together, Sue. Looks like a bad day in need of much caffeine, given the pile next to your cup! I hope your coffee supplies are coping

    • Sue

      Well, it was done for effect! I don’t drink that much! But the supples are coping, as I’m not having the visitors these days!!

  13. Sue, I am utterly amazed at how much you’ve been able to convey with those cups of coffee and books. The light throughout your pictures is gorgeous, you always have a good book by your hand and the atmosphere each time is so particular.
    You did a fabulous job on that Isolation project creativity!
