Lovely! Shot in a funky little outdoor bistro with a blue sky? or indoors in a boring place with a blue ceiling? I hope the former!

@CElliottUK: The former: outdoor Bistro called La Boulange; warm weather, blue skies, dog at our feet (Black Tibetan Terrier, not photogenic I'm afraid.) I was surprised to see reflections when I downloaded from the camera. Serendipity !

Superb coffee bubbles floating freely distributing joy and strength Dulcie. How good is the good morning coffee friend. I have a cup in her hand now and its aroma is pleased to your excellent image! Best regards, Adela!

Haha Lol on your dog not being photogenic! My dog is a 9-year old mutt, who I love dearly, but she's not quite the right material for "Playmutt" monthly!!!!
