I was having a hard time deciding in between the black and white and the color version. This is two separate frames but taken close together .
I like the ripples in the coffee in the color but I like the shades and tones in the black and white. The Chemex and Kettle were part of my Christmas gift from my daughter :) I am sure I will do a few more with coffee as a theme this year but this was more or less the first image out of my mind and onto the SD Card/Harddrive . The light is very very did I mention very flat today so rather than accept it I turned the flash on . Just a basic flash camera back right and set the power to 1/2 power (I tried a lower power and lower shutter speed but did not like what the coffee was doing) and I had a white card pointing back at the chemex for a bit of fill.
