Mittens and A Mug by lyndemc

Mittens and A Mug

I've seen a number of pictures of mittened hands holding a steaming mug that I liked so when it started snowing lightly here this afternoon I thought it the perfect time to attempt a similar shot. Problem was, the afternoon football game was about to start and I didn't want to miss the playoff action. Subsequently I didn't spend as much time on the details as I normal would have. Shame on me for putting sports over photography this one time!

January 16 — In hindsight, perhaps the football game kept me from me messing this photo up. I thought it needed more attention but you liked it the way it is. The generous favs have made it a TT winner! Thank you so much for that.
Wonderful shot. The white mug against the dark jacket and mittens really stands out. The snow flacks falling add a sense of cold to the shot.
Wonderful detail in the shot.

I don't know how else you were going to photograph this, but I love how it turned out with the bright colored mittens and scarf and snow flakes, fits the title perfectly! FAV!

It's perfect!! I can seem a little steam coming from your mug and the dark mittens and coat make the right background for the white mug to be center stage. The snow falling makes me think of ice skating, haven't done that in years.
