Day 46 – Starbucks

I know I am in the minority, but I am not a big fan of Starbucks. I don’t drink coffee, I don’t like tea, and it tends to be expensive, so that would usually mean three strikes your out in my book, but…it is a good place to meet up with people, especially ones you are “catching up” with. And I do like Hot Chocolate AND their warmedΒ Chocolate Croissants are wonderful on a really cold day, which it was/is. So I braved the cold, enjoyed my Starbucks “treats”, and finally got “caught up” with a friend.

      I have just been using my 50mm/f1.4 so far and it does great DoF. I have a 70 -200 that I don’t love and want to trade but not sure for which yet. Also, have a wide angle I take when we travel. What camera/lens do you use?

        I have a Nikon D3200 and usually use a 50mm 1.8, I would love the 1.4 but affordability came into it. I have also the 18-105mm but rarely use it, my love affair is with prime lenses πŸ™‚
        I would like to upgrade to the D7100 or its replacement when it’s released, if money wasn’t an issue I would love the D750 full frame πŸ™‚

    Glad I’m not the only one, not a fan of hot beverages, oh really anything but water, and I don’t eat grains so makes it difficult when people want to go for coffee. Lovely photo, the colours in the background are beautiful, and I like the DOF.

      Are you Paleo? I am mostly Vegan but I do indulge in my 3 fishes and occasional dairy, but really trying not to. Everyone thinks it is hard, really isn’t but no grains would be a bigger challenge for me. What camera/lens do you use?

        Yupp I am, I think Vegan would be harder! I’ve never really eaten dairy and I really don’t miss grains to it’s a piece of cake for me. I find it interesting when people say that, I guess it’s just how we like to eat so it’s easy, everyone thinks we’re so deprived but I just feel better eating that way.
        I have the Nikon D3100 and Nikon 50mm F1,8 and Tameron 28-75 F2.8. What do you use?

        I have a Canon 60D, just using my 50mm, f1.4 so far which I love for DoF shots. I don’t prefer my 18-200 and hope to sell it, also have a wide angle 10-22 that I use when traveling. I used point and shot’s until a few years ago when a friend introduced me to her Canon Rebel and I fell in love with the beautiful photos it took. I now realize it is more the person than the camera and so I am the 365 journey πŸ™‚

      It is definitely big her in the US, I have had there double Chocolately Chip (I think Frappiciono?) always tell them to hold the coffee πŸ™‚ I heard they may be offering Coconut Milk as a substitute. Still pricey and not my “cup of tea” but it is good meeting place πŸ™‚ What camera/lens do you use?
