More than just Clouds in my Coffee

Hi all,
My post title is referring to song line "I had some dreams, They were clouds in my coffee". I just loved Carly Simon when I was a teen. Anyway, yesterday I was sewing at home and about to refill my coffee cup, having thrown some granules into my mug when I noticed a great swirly pattern in the bottom of the cup, so out came the camera..

Can you see my fingers and the top of the camera?

Having fun with spin blur in Photoshop

Does anyone else see a little alien?

Have a good weekend everybody,

You're So Vain
You walked into the party
Like you were walking on a yacht
Your hat strategically dipped below one eye
Your scarf, it was apricot
You had one eye on the mirror
And watched yourself gavotte
And all the girls dreamed that they'd be your partner
They'd be your partner, and
You're so vain
You probably think this song is about you
You're so vain,
I'll bet you think this song is about you
Don't you?
Don't you?
Oh, you had me several years ago
When I was still naive
Well, you said that we made such a pretty pair
And that you would never leave
But you gave away the things you loved
And one of them was me
I had some dreams, they were clouds in my coffee
Clouds in my coffee, and
You're so vain
You probably think this song is about you
You're so vain, you're so vain
I'll bet… Full lyrics on Google Play Music

Hi guys,
I've been out and about with my photo buddies again and the theme I was after was 'glass'.  We were in Sydney's CBD on a cloudy Sunday afternoon roaming the relatively quiet streets taking photos and had a coffee and compared stories afterwards. What more could you ask for? Apart from a few good reflections that is ;))

I've posted a couple of these on instagram where my handle is @valerielebedevas  
I keep finding the most amazing international photographers, travellers, cyclists and sewing people there. The only problem is that it can be a time swallower so it's been a while since I caught up on everybody's blogs. will try to remedy that!
Have a good weekend everyone.

The colour Red

Last weekend while roaming the inner city with a bunch of photo group friends for a colour challenge I drew 'red' out of the hat. I like these challenges because they make you look at the details, like red awnings, red chairs or the famous label on a coke bottle. Happily I got some reflections too.

Have a good weekend everyone,
