59|365 Skullee (3/4/11)

In January I was gifted with this very special cup that is a momento of my trip to the American Library Association Midwinter Convention in San Diego.  When the drink I ordered at the restaurant arrived in this cup, the group I was with seemed to think this skull cup was overflowing with irony for me.  Perhaps so, but I think it’s just so darn cute, maybe it’s that big smile or that it appears to be blushing.  What do you think?

Here’s my skullee (skull coffee cup) with the dreaded coffee pot behind it.  I’m practicing photographing a near object in focus while a far object is not and this shot required getting a balance (without a flash) of the light in the foreground and dark in the background.
