With cream and sugar? One lump or two? Or maybe just straight up...with the shavings on the side?
Yesterday was a day of "supposed-to's".
I was supposed to work on just one project all day...
I was supposed to not get harassed by a million little things...
I was supposed to not drink too many Gin and Tonics the night before...
But when I woke up at 6:30am (I actually woke up at 5:30, thought better of the enterprise and went back to sleep) after an assorted arrangement of nightmares and fitful sleeping that was supposed to not happen, the light was just so nice in my little apartment. North light. Perfect light. It looked like this:
And I've been meaning to take breakfast photos in this light. Or at least photos of my morning coffee. This was SUPPOSED TO be a photo of my morning coffee. But I hadn't made it yet. And I didn't feel like making it yet. So, I grabbed the next handiest thing — a head of garlic — slapped it onto the radiator by the window and took a few shots.
Caravaggio-esque, don't you think? I mean...for a garlic.
If you DO happen to have a head of garlic, I have some suggestions for what to do with it over at Colavita. I made a whole book about it. Check it out, and forget about the layer cake.
