Coffee with L every Tuesday and Thursday before class; getting up an extra hour early suddenly becomes no chore at all.
/// Kayak's Café: latte & chocolate-covered espresso beans
It wasn't snowing inside the café. The flurries are actually halations: spots of light produced when my camera captured the sunlight streaming in from the opposite window. The famous Dutch painter Vermeer (most known for Girl with a Pearl Earring), who used a camera obscura to paint more accurately, actually incorporated halations into his paintings along the rim of a glass or the edge of a chair; objects do not have perfect outlines, but are fuzzy with spots of light. This tiny detail made his paintings seem more cheerful and bright.
|Johannes Vermeer, Officer and Girl, c. 1655-1660.|
