each like a kettle-drum on its wheeled stand,
crossed and recrossed the aisles between the tables ... *

That cup and saucer is a bit overly read for me. Very intense contrast against the white pages of the book.ReplyDelete
I agree, the colors are very strong, to say the least. I left them the way they turned out because they reflect the bright sunlight which I enjoyed while sitting outside (I was waiting for company and brunch).
May I ask what kind of monitor you have? The red looks different on my Macbook, a truer red, such as I remember the cup to have, while on my color-calibrated Dell monitor, it has a less brilliant tone.
I should have said that "I thought they reflect the bright sunlight" - then again, it is what it is! ;-)ReplyDelete
Merisi, cardamon tea sounds delicious, I have only had cardamon coffee in Oman but would love to taste this tea.ReplyDelete
I've lately been drinking iced peach tea . . . yummm
Gorgeous reds! I'd give anything to join you there in the Vienna sunshine, over a coffee and maybe a slice of Guglhupf! (How come Viennese treats not only look utterly divine but have such cool names too?!)ReplyDelete
