Brighton Marathon at Richardson Road

Ready, steady go…… our week kicked off on Sunday with the Brighton Marathon, Mile 16/17 runs both ways along New Church Road. Out came the sunshine, out came the supporters cheering in their hundreds, waving balloons, cheering on the runners pounding the tarmac. So all those raw throated supporters needed a little rest after their exertion, where else than the sunny terrace at Drury Coffee Bar, cold icy fresh fruit smoothies, triple shot large latte’s, bacon and brie Panini’s seemed to be the favourites.  Staff collapsed at 5pm  into the nearest pub 3 Graces on Portland Road for a well deserved glass or two.  Time for bed says Brian..

Latte Portraiture

From the folks over at Tumblr Storyboard, shot an interesting vignette about barista Mike Breach who began experimenting with small coffee and milk foam portraits in a hotel kitchen where he works. Breach draws quick, intricate portraits that are enjoyed by a single person for only a moments before being consumed. He says the drawings in and of themselves are “kind of a joke” but he’s more concerned about the brief connection he’s able to make with an individual and how it impacts their day.
