Sunday is my favorite day of the week. I love the mood of slow days at home, ideally started with a delicious breakfast and a good conversation with my wife. Maybe followed by listening to music, reading a book or taking pictures together.
Something I also wouldn’t want to miss on a Sunday is a good coffee. We use a Bialetti Moka Express to make Café au lait or Latte Macchiato. It’s a stove-top coffee maker which passes hot water pressurized by steam through ground coffee. Moka is technically not an espresso, but it tastes just as good if it’s well made.
Rebecca is reading a copy of Hearth Magazine in these pictures. At the time I shot these we didn’t know yet that our work would be published in Volume 5, which will be printed this fall. If you don’t know Hearth I can only encourage you to have a look. They feature truly beautiful photography and we are very proud and humbled to be part of it.
We live in a little old farmhouse close to the sea on the very southern tip of Ireland. All the images for this blog post have been taken at or close to our home. So let me invite you for a handmade coffee, a glance through Hearth and a walk at the beach.
