Tea... in an Ice Cold World

Contrary to what you may think, this...

...is not real tea. It's photographer's tea... very easy to make too! All you need is steaming hot water, an empty tea infuser, and some loose tea. You pour the hot water in a cup, add the empty tea infuser, and sprinkle loose tea all around, for decor. Oh, and if you're going outside with your 'tea', make sure you put a saucer on top, so the steam doesn't escape and is there when you start shooting. You can just barely see the steam coming out of my 'tea'. That's my fault though, should've done this against a darker background.

So after I 'finished' my tea, I took a photo of my shoes. Just because, well... I wanted to. And another one...

Sorta.

I also took a photo of the living room curtain this morning. A bit random, I know, but I felt I needed to add it to the post.

By the way, I wasn't planning on Picnik editing my photos. I just ran them through a basic Photoshop edit, like I always do, but after I uploaded them onto Flickr, I noticed they were a bit dark and decided it would be best to Picnik edit them directly from Flickr. It was really convenient.
