The coffee clock idea materialized itself slowly, it started with me taking a photo of a cup pointing to the current time. I sent it to a friend as a way of saying I was 5 minutes early. That first photo wasn't really good. Some of the others that followed weren't either but I still kept them. Taking the same photo over and over again is an interesting exercise. It's a way to learn how light works in different times of the day, to pay attention to shadows and to ponder different compositions of elements.
