roadworkers' coffee break

I was walking along a street in my neighbourhood when I spotted these coffee mugs. A little later I detected some workers behind the rhododendron bushes who were digging up someone's front garden, probably to lay some power cables. My theory is that they were given coffee by the house owner. The mugs are very colourful, and only in post production did I see that they advertise "Jacobs Krönung", a popular coffee brand. I deliberately left the paper bag and the workmen's gloves in the shot to give the scene some context.
