Good evening, Lioness!
Its 8:48pm as I being to write this—I hope all is well with you. I, like many of your submitters, am a long time admirer (via three separate blogs) and have decided to give in and submit to your graces after a thoughtful period, wondering it over in my mind.
This photo occurred this passed Monday, June 30, the last day of the month—and a very sticky morning. The thunderstorm that raged the night through was not enough to cool the atmosphere. The skies were still a mustard yellow from the distant clouds. It was just after 10am and I truly did not want to go to work to dawn my ‘customer service’ persona and assume my retail position.
I had somewhere less than thirty minutes to myself and I managed to stop just enough time to capture four images. The other three can be viewed [here] and, while I do believe they are beautiful, they lack an air of ease—what I mean to say is that they seem too deliberate. This submission, however, is sincere and messy and a little bit frantic to get one last sip of sour, instant coffee. I enjoy an genuine image and I hope that you do too.
I create my photo-sets by videotaping myself in various stances and poses on my mobile phone; from the video, I select and capture my favorite frames. This was the last scene before I stood and began my day.
Lioness, I do truly hope that your days are wonderful.
Thank you for your impassioned devotion dedicated to the Coffee Club and your many submitters. We do so appreciate all your efforts and presence.
