Weekend reflections.....


Some of the older buildings along Milligan Street above... and below I can almost hear him say 'don't look now, but she's there again' haha!.....
 “Pick a coffee shop that suits you and keep going back.
Your barista will remember what you drink”
I read that somewhere and it's so true.. Cafe 34 is mine, where on a Friday, not only do they know my coffee preference but what I have for breakfast..extra hot skinny flat white, poached eggs on multi grain toast...so good, so healthy :) Where's your coffee spot? Hope you have a great weekend, there's something 'arty' happening around my place, I'll show you when it's fini :) Take care...Click here to view all participants of Weekend Reflections

  1. Terrific reflections for the day, Grace!! Looks like my kind of place! I think that's probably exactly what that guy is saying -- people around here look at me the same way!!

  2. Great reflections! The middle photo reminds me of some of the looks that I've gotten from people over the years.

    You are always welcome at Weekend Reflections. :-)

  3. Ooh, nice ones, I find these kinds of reflections so hard to capture - you caught some great dynamics and the urban rhythms of Perth life! Hoping the weekend is a good one for you down yonder:)

  4. And a wee bit of a self-portrait too! Great shots, Grace.
    I don't drink coffee but my local pub starts pouring my favourite pint as soon as I hit the door and the chef starts the pizza going - I never have to order! What a creature of habit.

  5. Nice to go to places where they know your name...or at least your face... and how you like your coffee.

    Hope you have a super weekend. And I'm looking forward to seeing what's 'arty' around your place.

  6. Nice to see you reflected! :-) Shame on me, I don't have a coffee spot. Perhaps because I don't drink any coffee? :-)

  7. Very clever shots Grace and nice to see your reflection. Our favourite is the Bean & Leaf in Largs but since we bought of fancy smancy Swiss machine, Clive's become a wonderful in house Barista.

  8. Walls of glass lend themselves to the greatest reflections. This is one of them. Sounds like the PERFECT coffee shot. It is amazing they always know what they need to know. genie

  9. I have yet to sus out a new coffee shop close to my new digs, Grace. Although the French patisserie up yonder is shaping up true to form. I am up for a tour when you are next over this way. Give me a shout when you know your dates.

  10. Lovely shots, Grace.

    I'd like to thank you for your kind words at my blog.

  11. I"m not a Starbucks girl. I prefer the small locally owned and all I ever order is "Medium, medium roast."

  12. All I can say is I am glad that I don't have to wash those windows. Great reflections. Enjoy your weekend, Grace.

  13. Hey, there you are! Captured! I frequent a number of different coffee shops, many of which are Starbucks, and some of which are either smaller chains or independent coffee shops. I like the environment of a coffee shop to enjoy a cup, maybe read the newspaper, and check my mail and whether anyone has looked at my blog.

  14. a long time ago Don and I had a cafe where he enjoyed going and yes I do believe the staff finally did know what we were going to order :) Like the shot with the "you" reflection :)

  15. Enjoy your coffee dear Grace but don't forget to take pictures of the exhibition! :)
    I'm curious about what is going on there!
    Great pictures with clean and beautiful reflections. I see it's a charming street with modern buildings.
    hugs

  16. Nice shots ! My coffee shop is in my own kitchen. In France, they sell these Nespresso brand coffee machines (thanks to the George Clooney ads?) that make great coffee. I see they're now available in the States, but for a change, they cost a whole lot more there than they do here (despite the exchange rate advantage). Anyway, the downside is that I don't get to watch the world go by from my kitchen.

  17. Super city reflections. Your coffee and breakfast sounds enjoyable.

  18. Such nice reflections and a coffee to it makes it perfect.

  19. Whoa! That's just a little bit TOO healthy for this bakery fanatic ... but I guess that will show up in our relative sizes ...

  20. Nice series, Grace!
    Have a good weekend.

  21. I especially like the bottom shot. Very cool!

  22. Good captures of the reflections, Grace!

    «Louis» thanks you for your visit to San Francisco Bay Daily Photo.

  23. There's a lot to take in here... it'll take me all weekend! hahahaha

  24. Lots of reflections in these shots. I'm the only one at the local Starbucks who goes in and orders a slice of banana bread and NO coffee. They know me that way. I've never acquired a taste for coffee. Strange, I know.

  25. And now I know what a "barista" is, merci beaucoup, Grace ;-)
    Sadly I don´t like coffee much, though, I´m the tea-type.

  26. Love the brighter central panels of reflection in the top photo. Would look good cropped out and on their own. Your Perth looks a very bright and modern clean-lined place. The bits you have shown since I started looking anyway. My Scottish Perth is more gritty and varied and time-worn, though still nice in many ways.

  27. That 2nd last photo... If I did that and in the building were two women, I'd probably get arrested and sent to the Dirty Old Man Wing of the local prison, but the men didn't seem to mind the attention you gave them (unless you are keeping the "interior of my cell" shots for a later post :)

    (By the way, I actually have no knowledge of above-mentioned Dirty Old Man Wing, I just made that up. Honest)
