Brenda's Photo Challenge

Okay, I think I got this photo challenge right this time. LOL Brenda is our hostess and Debrah picked the theme for the challenge this time. My good blogging buddy Donna is playing along and Nita is also in the challenge. Go visit all of them and see what goodies they have. So when I found out the theme was liquid I knew I was just going to have fun with this one. Nothing extraordinary about these photos, just my very favorite liquids to drink. Okay without any more fanfare, my number one favorite drink, the elixir of life(you think I'm kidding on that one don't you?) LOL COFFEE, COFFEE, COFFEE Every morning it's the first thing I go for. Love it freshly brewed and hot. Can't you just smell it now?

And then every afternoon I allow myself one Diet Coke and I like it with lots of ice. I don't usually use a fancy goblet like this but hey why not use your fancy goblets for everyday? Why wait for company when it's so much fun to drink out of pretty things. How can you not be a Diet Coke fan?

And then my favorite spirited bubbly drink. Pink Champagne!! I'll admit I love a good glass of red wine and that is usually what I order when we go out to eat but every once in awhile I just have to have a good glass of bubbly and Pink Champagne fills that spot. Mumm's Blanc De Noirs is one of my favorites. So there you have it, my three photos for the liquid challenge. Like I said I just decided to have fun with this one and went with it. By the way, I took about 25 different photos trying to get these photos because I was pouring the drinks and trying to take the photos at the same time. I did try my little tripod to take some photos but I wasn't getting the angles I wanted, so I took all of these with one hand which is not that easy to do because my hand was shaking trying to hold the camera with one hand and hit the button for the photo. Let's all have a glass of Pink Champagne and toast the weekend being here. Cheers!!! Fun challenge girls!

Great photos Joan. I love all those drinks, you can find me with a cup of coffee within reach most of the time.

I like pink champagne too, but I like it slightly sweet. I wonder if that's why Donna adds a sugar cube to her dry champagne. I must try that.

I have to admit, though, that I don't really like diet drinks, although I do enjoy a Coke - but fully leaded.

I noticed your coffee mug was from The Salty Dog Cafe in Hilton Head...I've never been there, but man...I used to enjoy (and sometimes still do) a Salty Dog drink. It's gin (or vodka) with grapefruit juice and a salt rim. Yeah well...the grapefruit juice makes the cocktail seem like a diet version. lolol

And pink champagne...nice! But I think I'll get back to my coffee. I've only had 2 cups this morning. I'm lagging behind. :)

Very nice!! I like your commentary also!! Hey, I know what you mean about the shaking hand trying to hold the camera and pour!! hahaha

No diet coke for me either. But my daughter would agree with your wholeheartedly, only she drinks too many and I'm on her all the time!!

Brenda said...

All favorite drinks of mine too. I'm especially fond of coffee (all day, every day). Wonderful and creative shots!

My favorite drink: WATER with shaved ice filling it to the rim so it's like super thick slush water. SO refreshing.
And I also like most Trader Joe juices. Mmmmmmmm.

Oh yes. And Martinelli's sparkling cider is the bomb.
