WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE – MORNING.

Here at Cassa Creakingbones every morning  follows the same ritual; coffee followed by  cereals, toast, fruit and more coffee.

Fortunately there is one  departure from routine.

Sunday mornings.

First, peruse the two Sunday dailies.

THE SUNDAY TELEGRAPH. ITS ADVERTISING JINGLE USED TO BE,’ SUNDAY JUST ISN’T SUNDAY WITHOUT THE SUNDAY TELEGRAPH.’

WHEN IT WAS A BROADSHEET THE SMH WAS THE INTELLECTUAL’S CHOICE. THAT WAS BACK IN THE DREAMTIME BEFORE IT BECAME JUST ANOTHER NEWSPAPER.

Second, determine which  local or distant cafe will be our venue for breakfast.

Today we chose to go to Roses Cafe, a pleasant cafe overlooking our local central park.

She Who Must Be Obeyed chose Eggs Benedict whilst my selection was simple scrambled eggs with bacon, grilled tomatoes and toast.  In addition we added the almost compulsory coffee and orange juice.

In addition to their great blackboard menu, Roses Cafe is well known for the prepared delicacies which stand refrigerated at the counter where clients place their orders. Close proximity to the displays makes menu decisions somewhat difficult. Here’s why and just a note, these two images don’t show every available goodie or nibble.

PART TWO.

All of these refrigerated morsels are freshly prepared and cooked on a daily basis. I know a couple of locals who are progressively making their way along each shelf from left to right.  They reckon its the only way to go.

Today too, by way of a change, I used my iPhone-6s-Plus to make the images.   I found it amusing that using the phone to make the photographs created no interest at all from the cafe’s staff or customers.  On the other hand, if I presented with my DSLR you’d think I had two heads, the way people stare.  Lesson well learned.

Hoo roo till next week.

  1. You’re making me feel hungry, I’ve not had my breakfast yet!
    I’ve noticed the same thing taking photos with a phone vs using a camera, a sign of the times I feel.

  2. It’s a rapidly changing world, not sure if it’s for the better. Have a good fry up like Inspector Frost does on TV. That makes me hungry just thinking about it right now.
