Is that Starbuck's coffee beans? I can smell it from here. I'll bet it smells good around your place. Great photo Anahelena. Wonderful idea and very well executed. Good luck with it.

Thank you so much Thomas. For the comment and taking the time to stop by.

The original was a bit bland so I had to pop-up the colors in PS. It was taken with morning light by a south-east facing window.

Thanks again! #1268052
