We ran out of coffee beans on Friday morning. Normally the subscription from Drift Away Coffee would arrive just around this time but for some reason is a bit late. Neither Bhavna nor I can start our day without a good cup of joe. When I woke up Saturday morning the first thing on my mind was aquiring coffee. Buy the Cup in Rocky Hill is the only coffee shop in my area open before 7AM on a Saturday morning. Every cup of coffee is $1, no matter what size — 12 oz, 16 oz or 20oz. It’s a real bargain and I have a choice of Rwanda, Columbia, Mexican and a few flavoured coffees that I refuse to acknowldge. Flavoured coffee is just plain stupid.
I know the owner, Vitaliy, so every trip is a conversation. This morning we chatted for a few minutes about hacking wi-fi networks. The shop is a local hangout for the early morning residents who jog or work in the area.
I drove away from the shop enjoying the colour display from the trees lining Washington Street. I circled back around headed toward home admiring the trees in the well kept yards. I drove down to Rocky Hill section of the Canal State Park. I could see that the light was just coming over the top of the Trap Rock Quarry.
I pulled out my tripod and grabbed a few shots in Slow Shutter Cam on my iPhone 6 before my battery quit. I would have prefered to capture the scene on my Nikon but I recently lost both my SD cards. Shit happens.
I applied the Fuji Astia 100F v.2 preset from the RNI Films iOS app.
