The 3Cs…Coffee and Carrot Cake

“Just the other day, I was in my neighborhood Starbucks, waiting for the post office to open. I was enjoying a chocolatey cafe mocha when it occurred to me that to drink a mocha is to gulp down the entire history of the New World. From the Spanish exportation of Aztec cacao, and the Dutch invention of the chemical process for making cocoa, on down to the capitalist empire of Hershey, PA, and the lifestyle marketing of Seattle’s Starbucks, the modern mocha is a bittersweet concoction of imperialism, genocide, invention, and consumerism served with whipped cream on top.”

Ghent Street Scenes

I’d rather be taking photos of people going about their business, laughing, loving and living, than taking landscape photos. I’m much better at it.

I enjoyed snapping these pics of people on the streets of Ghent one icy winter evening in January. In spite of the cold, there was so much movement, which I tried to capture, fleeting moments of people just being themselves.
