There’s more than just Starbucks in Seattle

February 8, 2013

The greatest white chocolate mocha I’ve ever tasted came in a cheap 12oz cup from a random tiny coffee window in the thick of downtown Seattle. It was around 7 at night, and I didn’t notice the window until I walked right by it. I don’t know what prompted me to wheel back around and head for the window, but I’m glad I did. It BLEW me away.

The next time I was in Starbucks, I ordered my favourite drink by habit. “Hi, I’ll have a tall white chocolate mocha please.” When I took a sip, cup in hand, I almost choked. The mysterious little cafe’s WCM made this one taste like an ultra sweet, tasteless imitation of what a white chocolate mocha is supposed to be.

I need to find this café again.

Tall White Chocolate Mocha…and a photo.

Life isn’t complete without a daily dose of Starbucks. Drinking a White Chocolate Mocha right now as I’m posting this….mmmmm.

Okay so I found a picture of a girl on this website. Now to see what I can change (for practice! I’m not saying there’s anything wrong with this individual’s face or photo :))

First off, the lighting in this photo is decent, which makes it more straightforward to edit right from the start. The main points in this photo I’d like to fix would be her hair (lots of strays, unevenly shaped), the area around her eyes (eyelashes, the lines underneath), and her teeth (whitening).

Check back later to see the result!
