When I started out doing this PAD I had an idea that the words and images would go
hand in hand. But of late I've found that to be easier said than done. While my
friends and family would testify that I'm rarely stuck for words and producing
words is literally how I earn my daily bread, I seem to have run out of steam
for stories to go along with my snapshots.
It's a bit like updating my status on Facebook - I don't feel my life is sufficiently
exciting to announce my activities to the world.
So all I can say about this shot is that it was taken while I was waiting for a
good friend to arrive at the Flower Market this morning. We enjoyed freshly
brewed coffee and chatted about our lives, making me think how lucky I
am to have good friends.

Great still-life and interesting reflection in the narrative. V

This is wonderful! I love how you can take some old jug and turn it into a super vase, it all looks homely, stylish and the mismatched china is great!

I'm late on commenting today and it's possible that someone else has already said this down below, but... when you look back at this PAD 10, 20 years from now it won't be the great events that you'll be grateful for the reminder of (those will probably have their own gallery anyway), it'll be the simple day to day ones of how everyday life is (was) back then (now). Great lighting and a nice arrangement.

Very nice shot, it conveys a relaxed mood so well. Well chosen and thoughtful words too. "V"

A picture is worth a thousand word. This excellent composition with super details speaks for itself. V

A wonderful way to start the day. And the month. You did such a beautiful job with this. I love those soft, desaturated tones.

I think the words you find to go with this lovely shot are wonderful! It is always worth to remind oneself of the good friends one has - and what a great idea to do this together in a lovely café. Uschi (V)

What a lovely time and place to spend with your friend & the latte looks very inviting!

Well, for someone who was short on words today, you certainly found some good ones for your narrative. I always enjoy your PaD. I don't expect it to be clever. (although it often is!) Seeing the scene and knowing that you had an opportunity to meet a friend and enjoy the company is satisfying enough. V

Cheers to good friends and this stunning image! Makes me want to just sit and enjoy the company and the treats!! BV

This looks so welcoming Mairead! I just love the homey feeling in your photo! V

I hope those sugar lumps were still intact as you left Mairead.
It's very often the little things in life that are soooooo important.
Cos without all those little things there'd be no big things...imo.
Big things like Pbase for instance ?:O)
