Coffee Wagon

ISO200 20mm f/5.6 1/200sec

Ahhhh, carnival time by the beach! You know summer is just about here as the ferris wheels and other rides erect overlooking the city/beach. Its quite incredible, a town (Holland MI) about a half hour from me is plastered with all sorts of festivities. No matter where you go in the city there are Elephant Ear booths, kids running around with Cotton Candy (my fav!) with the parents to follow running after their sugar induced preteens that are off to the next ride or attraction. 

I was accompanied again by my buddy Kelly, who just recently picked up photography as a hobby as well. We prowled the streets and shore, getting attacked by birds (true story!! They were vicious), grabbing each interesting scene until he ran out of film and I ran out of battery life (tip: check your batteries before you go out haha). Before that happened however I managed to run through my 8 gig card capturing some wonderful scenes, like this Coffee Wagon and its owner.

There were a TON of snack vendors outside this carnival, yet this dudes shop was the coolest of them all. Unfortunately I had no cash on me in order to get a tea or anything to help fund his caffeine induced wagon. However I did get this pic, which I was plenty excited about grabbing, giving me a nice burst of energy to carry on the many miles we walked through the rest of the nights shooting.

  1. Maybe because of tiredness, but this picture had me fooled for a few seconds. Very cool.

  2. love his bored expression

  3. while I’m here I must ask what’s an elephant ear booth, wikipedia suggested it was something like a doughnut but not. I’m foreign and confused.

  4. The picture seems almost fairy-tale-ish! Maybe that’s because of the soft lighting. Beautiful shot nonetheless!

  5. I love Holland! Especially the Holland State Park. I dedicated a chapter to it in my travel guide “West Michigan” which was published in German language.

    • Oh look at you, travel guide author and all 😀 I love Holland as well, my cousins lived out there when we were kids, so I got to spend a lot of time around the tulip infested area haha.

  6. I don’t drink coffee, but that’s the coolest coffee wagon ever!! 🙂

    • Im with ya Cindy, Im not a coffee drinker… Tea on the other hand! And yes definitely the coolest Coffee Wagon i’ve ever seen, however it does win by default being the only Coffee Wagon Ive ever seen haha

    Great composition, angle, scene and colour!! I like very much the subject, the density of elements, and his expression is fabulous!!! Well seen!!!

  8. Love it, the image of the wagon is so powerful and exciting, while the body language and expression on the guy is the complete opposite.

  9. Great processing… something about the colors that is very nice 🙂

    great and very interesting post, Nick! 😉

  11. Very cool photo, Nick. It looks like the barista needs some customers or a cup of coffee himself. 😉

  12. Great colors and great observation Shez – that is exactly what it looks like. I assume you didn’t pose him which just makes the spontaneity of the whole situation perfect!

  13. This reminds me of The Imaginarium of Dr. Parnassus. What an absolutely awesome-looking stall. =D
