Another take on the theme from me


K cups


Tiny but,,,,,tasty


Good idea and very tasty once you find the right brand.

Hi everyone...and a happy new year to all. I have been away and for part of the time since returning have been trying to rebuild my computer connections after a rather serious malfunction.

Anyway, enough of that...had to get used to this new site as well, and it took a while to find you all, so to celebrate I went out and found this little guy in the garden. Not the greatest effort but it gets me back in this thread which I really enjoy.


Great to have you back and a lovely tiny bug! :-D

I didn't know what to do, so did some silly things in Photoshop. All shots were taken this week of course!

Here I used my old Powershot in Macro mode for the needle and my old 40D with 50/1.8 for the nik-naks.

Those are really cool shots Levina. Especially like the biblical reference in the second shot.

Thanks, OldCrow. The biblical reference is purely coincidental though. ;-)a

Nice work Levina.

By the way, K-cups are similar to the Nespresso capsules that you use in a capsule (cup) machine. It's ground coffee in individual servings. When we were in Amsterdam in April, we shopped at de Bijenkorf. On one of the upper floors they had a huge section just for Nespresso capsules with people taking numbers and waiting to meet with a Nespresso "sales consultant." It was a bit over the top for me.

Maybe they had a big promotion thing going on at the time? Those capsules aren't exactly popular here...

Fun shots Levina! You did a great job. I didn't know there were camels in Amsterdam ;-)a

Tim you beat me to the Keurig explanation...

Thanks, Jo. And oh yes, there are at least two camels in Amsterdam and they're kept in one of my closets. Nik-naks from a trip to Egypte. :lol:

Richard!!! I assumed you were too busy building boats to play, but I'm so glad to see you back! A happy 2015 to you too, my friend.
And that's a great macro that fits the theme perfectly.


Thank you Levina...I've been missing our communications!

And Old Crow...thank you. (I can't figure out how to make the multi-quote thing work...I'm totally thicko when it comes to this technology!!!!...Could someone please explain?):oops:

Click the posts you want to MulteQuote. Then click Reply or Post to Thread and in the text editor (on the left, where all the smileys are) you will see the word "Quote". Click it and the Quote window will open and there you will find your multiple quotes. You can insert them in any order you like, or all together. If you move the box a bit, it will stay open until you click it shut. If you don't move the box it will close after using something in it. Hope this helps?

Fantastic shot Levina...it must have taken hours to train those camels. (I once had a book called "The Profit"...a spoof on Kahlil Gibran's popular piece...which explained that...quote..."It is easier for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle if it is first lightly greased". Which rather amused me at the time!:-D)

Oh yeah, it took me minutes to train them!  :p :lol:

The quote is funny. It reminds me of the Spike Milligan spoof of the Old Testament that I read many years ago. :mrgreen:

It isn't easy to hold up my end of things with all these creative interpretations around. Finally I got an idea.
