52 Weeks Of Photo Challenges

A theme based photo blog

24. It’s a Mail/Male Thing

7 Comments

I wasn’t sure what I was going to use for this theme but then like manna from heaven the door bell rang this morning and there he stood, the mailman! The delivery that was being made was our twice a year delivery of Panama coffee.

My husband and I are admitted coffee snobs. We spent a few years both vacationing and living in Panama. Friends from Boquete own a small coffee farm there. When we get down to just a few bags a new order is just a Facebook message away. Trece and Paul roast it at that time just the way we like it, very light.  The lighter the roast the better the flavor and the higher the caffein content! If someone tells you they don’t like coffee because it tastes bitter  it’s because they are drinking dark roast, burnt coffee beans. Thanks again Trece… I will be enjoying my giant cup of Joe every morning for another several months! I’ll be in touch when the supply starts to run low… 😉

Hi, my name is Mindy Towns, I live in Lakewood Ranch, Florida. Along with several friends I have been participating in a weekly, theme based, photo blog since August 2012. Each year we receive a new list of 52 themes. We then post a photo each week that fits one of the themes along with a brief description about why we feel the photo fits the theme. Over the years I have learned a lot about my camera, new photography technics and also a lot about my fellow bloggers. I've peeked into their homes, met their families and traveled to exotic places through their photos. This year I am challenging myself further by trying to become even more creative in my posts. I found the cutest little Playmobil person complete with a camera and a little dog. She is going to be my little personal assistant over the coming months. I'm going to use many of the photo skills I have learned from participating in the photo challenge along with some new photoshop tools I have been practicing. I hope you will continue to follow my blog as I change things up a bit this year. Perhaps some of you will raid someones toy chest or toss something cute into your Target shopping cart and get a little silly with me. If you want to see examples of my grown up photography please visit one of my links listed on this blogs home page!

  1. I just love all the postage stamps. Are they all postmarked or just left alone?

    • I wasn’t sure Diane, I had to go look. Most are at least slightly hand stamped but a few are not. Are you a collector? Would you like me to keep them for you?

  2. That’ s a lot of stamps!

  3. One of these mornings, I want to share a cup of that coffee.

  4. Any postage due?? That’s good to know about the light roast. That must be why I like it so much better. Thanks for another nugget of information!

  5. My friends just did the Panama Joe coffee tour and loved it! 🙂
