CLICK is a monthly food photography event. It is a theme-based contest. You do not need a blog to participate. Each month, entries will be invited based on a culinary ingredient or concept. More about it HERE.


Specialty coffees are very popular these days, attracting millions of consumers, every single one of whom is standing in line ahead of me whenever I go to the coffee place at the airport to grab a quick cup on my way to catch a plane. These consumers are always ordering mutant beverages with names like “mocha-almond-honey-vinaigrette lattespressacino,” beverages that must be made one at a time via a lengthy and complex process involving approximately one coffee bean, three quarts of dairy products and what appears to be a small nuclear reactor.

Meanwhile, back in the line, there is growing impatience among those of us who just want a plain old cup of coffee so that our brains will start working and we can remember what our full names are and why we are catching an airplane. We want to strike the lattespressacino people with our carry-on baggage and scream “GET OUT OF OUR WAY, YOU TREND GEEKS, AND LET US HAVE OUR COFFEE!” But of course we couldn’t do anything that active until we’ve had our coffee.

It is inhumane, in my opinion, to force people who have a genuine medical need for coffee to wait in line behind people who apparently view it as some kind of recreational activity. I bet this kind of thing does not happen to heroin addicts. I bet that when serious heroin addicts go to purchase their heroin, they do not tolerate waiting in line while some dilettante in front of them orders a hazelnut smack-a-cino with cinnamon sprinkles. ~ Dave Barry

CLICK Coffee/Tea, or items related to these beverages. Highlight them in any setting, and send it to us before July 30, 2008.

    Hahaha..picture of dog peed in coffee mug :) )))

  2. Asha says:

    Cool theme! Enjoy!
    I never ever take a great photo anyway, so I will enjoy looking at them from now on! :D

    Well..AJ, the old man,losing his bladder control these days and peed on the carpet this morning. Bummer! That doesn’t qualify, did you say? ;p

  3. Dee says:

    Great theme bee…

  4. Cham says:

    Wow, flavorful theme :) I can smell coffee already.

  5. Lucy says:

    Fabulous, bee and jai. I’ve just the thing in mind, too!

  6. nags says:

    this is a lovely theme, though liquids are harder for me to capture. i was just thinking, now that u have more and more participants from all over, wouldn’t it help amateurs like me if you also had a category for non-professionals who bend and stretch and still cannot come up with a pic that’s half as good as those professional photographers out there?

    Maybe a category that says ‘best amateur shot! :D

    99% of click participants are amateurs – i.e. they don’t do photography for a living.

  7. manggy says:

    Ooh boy! This is challenging! I’m rubbish at beverages, haha! I hope I can participate :)

  8. Mansi says:

    I totally agree with Nags! that’s a great idea for ppl like us:) liquids are indeed hard to shoot, especially coffee and tea, as I never imagine them to be “highly presentable”:)

  9. sra says:

    Ah! I’ll look out for a picture of civet coffee ;)

  10. coffee says:

    I cannot not participate in this one. :D

  15. Rachna says:

    ewwww dog peeing in your mug…ewwwww…..


  16. TBC says:

    Are there still folks who do not comprehend the rules despite the fact that they’re so very clearly stated here month after month?
    “A portrait of the dog who peed in your coffee mug does not qualify.”- :D :-)

    you underestimate how “creative” people can get.

  17. enjay says:

    Tea and coffee…yess!! [ You go, Dave Barry. My pet peeve- drinks called 'chai tea', 'chai frappuccino', 'chai' anything. Chai is a freestanding word, you morons!]

  18. Jude says:

    I had actually been working on a recipe involving coffee. And a fish. It’ll be good stuff :)

  19. Ah photographing coffee – I just don’t think it can get any better. Except I am afraid that I will drink all the coffee and have an empty mug which I fear will not qualify.

  20. Andrea says:

    Oooo, a tasty challenge! I hope to have my new camera in time for this one!

  21. sunita says:

    I don’t drink any of them…but let’s see what I can come up with :-)

  22. janet says:

    Yikes, I am the person in the coffee shop in front of you ordering that frou-frou drink that has so much other stuff in there it’s amazing it’s still called coffee ;) I just discovered your website and I am really excited about participating and putting my camera to the test.
