Sugar cubes on our table in Baillies Cafe, Burnham-On-Sea, Somerset; 7 Mar 2012. 

Taken during the interval between making our order and the arrival of the delicious fodder.  The Full English Breakfast included Bubble And Squeak which, for those not already familiar with it,  is a wonderful, fried concoction of  potato, cabbage, onions and other veg left over from earlier meals, named after the noise it makes while being cooked in the frying pan – glorious stuff!

This is white sugar, but I’ve darkened it down and toned it, and I think that the reflective edge of the metal sugar bowl, top right, adds something to the shot.

About Adrian Lewis
Photographer working in monochrome, colour and combinations of the two - with a great liking for all sorts of images, including Minimalism, landscapes, abstracts, soft colour, people, movement, nature - I like to be adventurous in my photography, trying new ideas and working in many genres. And I'm fond of Full English Breakfasts and Duvel golden ale, though not necessarily together.

    Instantly recognisable to a sweet tooth like mine, although white sugar has its place, in tea or sprinkled on strawberries for instance, for a dedicated coffee lover it has to be brown sugar all the way. 😀

    Ha, ha, luckily I am not the only one to fiddle with camera whilst waiting for food to appear. You managed to do well with the ‘given’
