Friday Shoot-Out: Smells

This week's shoot-out topic is smells suggested by Nanu.  I think it is a great idea to use one sense to evoke the other.  Above is a fresh, delicious smell.  I took this shot because I liked the way John had cut the watermelon--very geometric or something.
Who doesn't love the smell of flowers and that earthy smell of pungent soil!

I love the salty smell of the sea.  There is just something about the ocean air that is energizing and healing.
John fills the apartment with coffee smells for me.  He doesn't drink it but makes it for me every morning.  Above is pre-creamer/splenda; below is post creamer-splenda.
Hope you enjoyed!!


  1. water melon, my son's favorite fruit. I don't buy it often because it is expensive here. I think he can smell it when I buy it.

    But coffee, you can smell it far far away.

  2. I don't drink coffee, but I love the smell of freshly brewed coffee which I did for my hubby every morning.

  3. like my coffee black and have it every day also. love it. love your watermelon shot and love the smell and taste of it also.

  4. The smell and taste of watermelon is part of my childhood. After helping to pick them we kids needs lots to revive us, they are heavy!! Lovely photos!

  5. Watermelon and Fresh brewed coffee... two of my favorite things and two smells that bring me to my knees.
    I love the before and after with the coffee. No matter what you do with coffee it's the elixir of life.

  6. I laughed out loud with the pre-creamer, post creamer shot! And post spoon as well although that may not change the taste and smell any.
