I like Starbucks a lot. Some other places, like Tully's, do a better job but Starbucks are most everywhere. Nice shot.

I bypass Starbucks every day for a Sausage McMuffin and a cheap cup of McDonald's coffee; actually the coffee taste like out motor oil but i drink a cup or two every day, must be my addiction

Anthony Morgan Lambert from Bielefeld,old West wales boy., Germany

They do boiled eggs at Starbucks ??!!
Over here in Germany only the Teenagers go for coffee in Starbucks.We have so many good "Grown up" coffee houses that drinking over priced weak,milky coffee is only trendy with the kids...
Although I have to admit that Starbucks is the only place I can get good Carrot cake in Germany.

A most unattractive subject (crumpled napkin, dirty cup, half-eaten egg), yet composed and lit into an attractive image.

A nice Life's instant...Love this......

Helen from Melbourne, Australia

Another interesting 'about daily life' image. Quite a powerful image for people judging by the comments above. My first reaction was shock at seeing the hard boiled egg and no plate and acceptance of the coffee and serviette! Can't help asking questions. Great image Dulcie. I am now off to have breakfast. Hmm, I wonder what I will have....?

2 Feb 2012 7:38pm

@Helen: Ok, in the interest of 'full disclosure,' I confess that I brought in my OWN egg, hence, no plate, just a serviette. The healthy and delicious egg really goes quite well with a caramel macchiato.... ;-))

I like the strong contrast and shadows - terrific shot of everyday life. Breakfast is the most important meal of the day!

haha! ronnie's comment! Founder of Starbucks went to my college, and we serve Peet's coffee... so... But they are everywhere! I like the composition. It's 1:11 here, I'm going to need coffee of some sort tomorrow morning ;).

Curly from South Shields, United Kingdom

I'm glad we don't have a Starbucks within miles of here, don't think I'd fancy boiled egg and coffee together. However, if they offer free wi-fi...........

Yikes, stop teasing me. The egg, too, perfectly YOU and yet the cup is not the large comfy one. You are so much missed and that is YOUR perfect detail.
