Mornings in Cork

This week’s Daily Post Photo Challenge is MORNING:

  • For this week’s photo challenge, publish a new post with an image that means morning to you.

Self’s idea of a perfect morning is waking up in Café Paradiso in Cork.

It means a good, hearty Irish breakfast with scones and croissants and butter and cream and jam and yogurt:

One of the great pleasures of staying in Café Paradiso is, in addition to the great FOOD, the selection of art books in the rooms.

And dear blog readers know about self’s fascination with windows, right? These are the windows in the Blue Room:

The Portrait Café, British National Portrait Gallery

Joan met self the day she arrived in London! We had lunch at St. Martin’s in the Crypt (Yes, really a crypt), then went to the British National Portrait Gallery.

This was the day before her camera became half-broke, so as you can see, no black slashes across the image.

Hallelujah! So one can really appreciate the view.

Stay tuned, dear blog readers. Stay tuned.

For her post on the Sylvain Landry Week 38 Photo Challenge, YELLOW, here’s a picture self took yesterday at a yarn store just above the Last Bookstore in downtown L.A.:
