52 breakfasts: #09

with one comment

This week’s entry for 52 Breakfasts was simply a disaster. And there’s no hiding from the cold, hard truth especially when your mom looks at the photo and says:”That’s ugly!” But, today’s the last day of the week and there’s no second chance to it, so here goes: Roti Bakar + Kopi (Charcoal toasted bread with coconut jam and butter + Malaysian local coffee)

I feel the photo lacks a focal point. It doesn’t give enough details nor attention to the subject. What do you think?


Below are 2 collages that I almost wanted to use for this entry but thought they were lousy attempts to trying to save the day. Might as well just face the ugly truth, move on and make sure I give more thought to my next entry. Just to share:

(Playing with mirroring effect and different focus points)

For Malaysian foodies, here’s a review on the kopitiam by a local food blogger: Coffee, Toast, Egg & Nasi Lemak @ Chong Kok Kopitiam

  1. I think the problem was the fact that bread and kaya are not very exciting subjects! Maybe a direct shot from the top, playing on the geometry shape of the bread, and the plate and the coffee cup?
