327/366 Pouring the perfect pint

It's been one of those evenings where I had nothing to photograph, so I sat at my desk and started photographing anything that caught my eye. The cats fluffy ear got a close inspection, I looked at the coloured glitter I bought in January for the 200th time, I photographed my empty glass with the dregs of the beer clinging to the sides...I wondered if I could photograph pouring beer into the glass

 

Holding the camera in one hand and pouring beer into a glass with the other (whilst shooting) is pretty tricky but I liked the look of the photos. Out came the tripod, so now I only had to worry about pouring the beer...took 10 shots and hated everyone of them - too clinical. So, today's shot is one of those taken handheld...I missed the focus slightly, but I don't mind that, it tells the story of me pouring beer.

 

Oh, for those of you who are interested, this is Spitfire Kentish Ale from the Shepherd Neame Brewery...very moorish ;-)
