perhaps a cup of tea? by graemestevens

perhaps a cup of tea?

Mmmm, bone china and a gas mask! Not items that one expects to find together.

you will need a straw.. nice pinky pointing!
May 30th, 2017  
I'm not even going to ask where that mask came from...
May 30th, 2017  
I love tea, but I'm not sure I'd take one from your alternate persona... Love the homely feel to this, well apart from the gas mask of course!
May 30th, 2017  
Love the slightly Steampunk look, just a few more gears and hi-tech and you're there!
May 30th, 2017  
Should I laugh or run? Take pity perhaps? The poor thing is trying so hard to look genteel.... such a good idea, so well executed. Quite possibly a fav!
May 30th, 2017  
Still...it's a life of sorts! Interesting collection you have put together.
May 30th, 2017  
English breakfast, Earl Grey or Green?

@gigiflower Do you know, I couldn't possibly comment...one doesn't drink tea...
@kiwinanna It is - and thank you :)
@yrhenwr I laughed, I see no reason why you shouldn't do the same...and thank you, as always, for your generosity
@mikegifford Thank you very much - there was enough steam inside that mask thanks
@dibzgreasley Thank you kindly - and I wouldn't trust my tea either.
@nicolecampbell Best you don't...there's a risk I may tell you...
@kali66 A straw would be best, I'm making a hell of a mess of myself here.
@salza Not to mention the rubber gloves...
May 30th, 2017  
Where are the doc martins? That is what disturbs me the most..
May 30th, 2017  
You're weird. I like weird! Not sure I'd like that "tea", though...
Another darkly wonderful image--love it!
May 30th, 2017  
@aikiuser I'm definitely not well...
@newbank I wondered who would pick up on that...spooky isn't it. No big coat either...
May 30th, 2017  
"Perhaps a cup of tea?" - who else could invest those five words with such menace!
May 30th, 2017  
Chintz??
May 30th, 2017  
I do like your pinkie finger raised "just so" Goes with the bone china but not so much with the gas mask
May 30th, 2017  
why not, and with that pinky.
May 30th, 2017  
@yaorenliu I do like to try and be upper class...I always fail miserably but at least I give it a shot
@joannakate One does ones best ;)
@30pics4jackiesdiamond I stole it out from under an unsuspecting pensioner just for this shot...and that's not far from the truth...
@vignouse I'm fairly certain that my Grandmother would have a fair crack of that whip, not that I have any desire to speak ill of a 97 year old Scotswoman...but if you think I'm menacing...
May 30th, 2017  
Ha .... this looks remarkably like a Prey Mantis....
May 30th, 2017  
@julzmaioro LOL, stop that right now thank you.
May 30th, 2017  
I would never have imagined you'd have tea cups like that :)
May 30th, 2017  
A straw may be necessary I feel.....
May 30th, 2017  
Fairy cakes as well ??
May 30th, 2017  
With a little honey to sweeten. I'm in. Superbly well done mate. Your lighting is excellent. Love the pinkie finger - very posh 😊
May 30th, 2017  
Just perfect!
May 30th, 2017  
Kas
What can I add - nothing. It's all been said. Genius! Chintz and the sinister. Perfect combo. Is that a skull I see on the book? Love.

Lee
Cool shot, and composition.
May 30th, 2017  
Love the lighting and the processing here, not sure what you've done but the way the fabric is reflecting the light and highlighting the folds and wrinkles is wonderful. Hardly even noticed the tea cup or the lac of usual foot ware, I was so busy admiring the light.
May 30th, 2017  
Have you got a straw?
May 30th, 2017  
Looks like you are fine again,... Missed the Doc Martins too, but love all those details, especially this little sun beam.
May 30th, 2017  
Crazy good!
May 30th, 2017  
@ukandie1 Thank you kindly :)
@mona65 Thank you very much - I didn't think the Docs would suit this shot...shows what I know!
@shepherdmanswife Who said I was taking it orally?
@gardencat Most of the light is courtesy of the dinning room window and a lot of editing...as for the shoes, what was a I thinking???
@gamelee Thank you very much :)
@wag864 Thank you very much - that's a seal skull (long story, nothing illegal or gruesome)
@shylaine3304 Thank you so much :)
@paul10 Thank you kindly - ones tries to be particular when in company ;)
@hermann You never know your luck...if I can catch some fairies to bake then fairy cakes we shall have!
@cutekitty Possibly...I don't have to take my tea orally though...
@northy 5 at last count, along with matching plates and saucers...they were my grandmothers so I take no responsibility for the choice...
May 30th, 2017  
@graemestevens didn't think you'd stoop so low.....
May 30th, 2017  
The rubber gloves are what makes me feel for you most of all. They just aren't good for anything. It takes a lot for me to turn down a cup of tea, but i'm thinking there are times when perhaps it is wisest. You take me back to a time in girl guides when a few of us visited the old lady in the house on the hill and she made cocoa. it was poured through a jug covered in cobwebs.
May 30th, 2017  
Good grief, no end to your imagination and ability to create exceptional images!
May 30th, 2017  
OMG, whatever you're on I want some. This is downright hilarious, love the pinkie.
May 31st, 2017  
I love the pinkie too. It was time to see that mask again :)
May 31st, 2017  
Surreal. The flowers, the book. Very well put together. And of course, best viewed on black!
May 31st, 2017  
Made me laugh!
May 31st, 2017  
@habit Thank you kindly :)
@888rachel It's been away for far too long!
@golftragic It's good shit...
@lynnz Thank you very much :)
@helenhall "take me back to a time in girl guides"...well, I never thought I'd see that phrase on here... ;)
@shepherdmanswife The view from down here is very entertaining....
May 31st, 2017  
@redy4et excellent :))
May 31st, 2017  
Certainly caught my attention!
May 31st, 2017  
@fbailey Sorry about that ;)
May 31st, 2017  
Superb!
May 31st, 2017  
@alophoto Thank you kindly :)
May 31st, 2017  
a flower actually thrives near you? must have a very strong constitution!
May 31st, 2017  
I like the creases in your jeans
June 1st, 2017  
@annied They match the creases in my legs...
@summerfield It came as a surprise to me as well.
June 1st, 2017  
You are so highbrow!
June 1st, 2017  
@joysabin I know, such a posh git ;)
June 1st, 2017  
A classic, Mr. S
