Second Cup

Sun and shadow on a white wall in Santa Barbara
Time for the usual mid-morning second cup forces me out and to a new coffee shop that has opened near here.

In its original form, the capture is nearly monochromatic already so the choice became to keep the little color there was in the shot or remove it altogether. Simplify is always my first go to and won the day here as well.

Much as it was in the first frame. Simple and clean. The late morning sun working the awning and surrounding foliage.

A quick flat white and I’m on my way.
