Double Shot Latte  by grizzlysghost

Double Shot Latte

Ok, a barista I am NOT!

Somehow I managed to carve a hart into the top of my latte that bears a striking resemblance to half a walnut which has been nibbled and discarded by a uniquely discerning panhandler. I've seen two baboons chasing a meerkat around a sailboat in the foam of some of the "upscale" coffees I've received in the past; art which I have now catalogued with the rest of the "magic things I will never understand."

But in the end; a diptych's been created. The rest hardly matters. And as a bonus, I now get to enjoy my half-walnut-in-the-cream latte and thank my stars I don't make coffee for a living!
GORGEOUS brown tones. The pic on the left makes me feel like I can smell it! great dof

Great diptych! I was thinking the "heart" looked like angel wings.

Great due! I love the chocolate brown tones through both images as well.
April 7th, 2013  
I meant to say duo!

I love this! Love the details and warm tones of the coffee beans! And that heart is better than what I could whip up!

I love the tones here Aaron, and that cup in on my list :))))

Great diptych shot. Love that coffee cup.

Mmmmm coffee ..... but even better is the hilarious description. I actually think you are selling yourself short on your coffee foam carving skills when you've very obviously managed to carve a very fine set of lungs into the foam.

Awesome theme shot, love the tones and the half a walnut

Killer tones and DoF on the left one. So, how has the 24-105mm been ? I have a 28-135mm and been very satisfied with it.

Fantastic response to the weekly theme. Nicely lit

You've woken me up! I can smell the coffee. Lovely dof on the beans.
April 7th, 2013  
Your caption made me lol. :D I think I need to go and ask my favourite upscale coffee shop's barista for a latte with "two baboons chasing a meerkat around a sailboat". :D This gets a fav for oh so many reasons.
April 7th, 2013  
Can smell it from here and it's damn gooooood!
April 7th, 2013  
Well done, and I bet it tasted fabulous
April 7th, 2013

@janim The 24-105 has been a delicious lens, well worth the purchase! I haven't tried the 28-135 vintage. :)
@corymbia Haha, lungs is even better! :)

Perfect diptych. Wonderful coffee beans, but love the cup/mug ! : )
April 7th, 2013  
Great diptych
April 7th, 2013  
Great idea for a diptych and love your title. The browns and creams are very atmospheric. Love your foam carving, although it reminded me of Mickey Mouse's ears! ;)
April 7th, 2013  
DEFINITELY didn't realize it was a camera lens until much later. I think I was so overwhelmed by the sense of smell from the beans ;)
April 7th, 2013  
This is very appealing. Love the colors.
April 7th, 2013  
Makes a great diptych.
April 7th, 2013

Excellent walnut. :-)
I like your colors and light the best on the left side. Nice diptych!

Yum! My sister bought me one of those mugs recently.
April 10th, 2013  
@Scrivna Very nice! What gets me is how real it is! I have that actual lens and the mug is almost identical!
