Now it's no secret that I am a dedicated Ground customer. I've frequented their Waterstone's and Wellington Place coffee shops on many occasions and had the odd little feature on my blog here and there.
But their current competition is too good an opportunity to miss...
Ground are challenging aspiring and established photographers to capture the perfect Ground Espression; a photo that sums up the atmosphere and ethos of Ground. The selected photographs will be turned into a coffee table book available to purchase with all proceeds being donated to the Ground Honduras Project. On top of this, one winner will be selected for a trip of a lifetime to New York!
This is my Ground Espression, taken first thing in the morning with a steaming bucket of cappuccino as my only companion. I am often in town from 8am although I don't start work until 9.30am. This quiet period before the rush hour means I can collect my thoughts and prepare for the day ahead. I always take the same seat at the back of the store, my undisturbed vantage point from which to watch the world
I am by no means an accomplished photographer and when it came to editing images for this post I struggled to choose so I thought why not just make a coffee-loving chronicle of my various visits to Ground over the past few years.
So without further ado, have a look at the rest of caffeine-fuelled captures and let me know what you think!
