Too much Tea?


Alice never actually drinks any of it, so she does not feel its effects. I wouldn't want to give mine up, though.

I love your use of mirrors in this picture :)

You can never have too much tea...or coffee...as long as the steam is shardless...! Clever, this :)

Pieces of broken mirror reflecting something gold? You amaze me!

The Hatter open mouth was just right for your creation (or is it the other way round? Time for a frown here...)

A little bird told me green tea is one of the best remedies for life ;-)

Love the tea cup slightly reflected in the shards of the first picture... make me want to pore (pour) over it in detail...

Very clever . . . and as with any magic, I can't see the "tricks" you employ.

I was at Jane Austen's House today, browsing through a very thorough book about tea in the 18th/19th century. I couldn't do without my tea, either. Apparently, neither could Jane. She would buy the family's tea at the Twining warehouse in London.

BTW, I didn't think you were snippy about the weather trope. For me, its relevance was this: when you have been deprived of sun for months, the first properly sunny day is an emotional event. I just don't think you can have that same level of appreciation if you have day after day of beautiful weather. Having said that, I would move to California in a minute . . . and I thought that the character was a fool to choose otherwise.

One more thing: I particularly like the word "perfunctory," which you used in a comment. A wonderfully descriptive, but woefully underused, word.

Bee - In fact, I am using minimal photoshop with this latest series - I have a couple of shots coming up in The Looking Glass series using mirrors which I am very excited about.

About the weather, I've heard transplants complain about the lack of seasons, and also heard people who have been in the state for two weeks complain about the superficiality of Californians compared to New Yorkers. I must be more statriotic than I know, because I tend to have a strong negative reaction to this sort of remark.

That looks exactly like my daily intake. But then I am English. Though not stratriotic at all.

Superb Mad Hatter image.

Born in Oakland...3rd generation from Pill Hill....Seasons are available in California ... you just have to travel a bit to find what you want. But the magic of the internet brings Alice to Rhode Island in less than a minute.

More wonderfulness.You are as prolific as you is terrific, no internet connection at The Castle for two days and you have 300 posts.I'm off to look up staytriotic in something that looks like a dictionary.I'm guessing it means a 'pride'in your state? In which case I am countyiotic, GO TIPPERARY!

ArtSparker said...

TFE- Oh, I don't think you'll find it in a dictionary. Crankiness forced me to commit a neologism.

Totalfeckineejit said...

Now I'm looking up neologism. I'm guessing: Neo - New. logism-logic?

This man is the label from Charisma Records, always associated (for me) to the music of my favorite band Genesis. I connected with Alice in Wonderland the cover of "Selling Englabd by the Pound". I know it´s wrong, he, he.
