Day 351—Everybody’s Got Something To Hide . . .

. . .’cept for me and my monkey. Well, the Beatles said it and I agree, I ain’t got nothin’ to hide and my monkey doesn’t either. But considering today’s challenge is “arms,” maybe I do have something to hide. My flabby arms are certainly something to hide and, since I don’t have a hunky guy around whose bulging biceps would make a good photograph, I decided that my morning coffee cup would have to step in for this challenge. I hoped to add interest to the photo by pouring some hot coffee and capturing a beautiful swirl of steam wafting from the cup. Easier said than done, so, that is yet another item I must add to the many photographic challenges I need to learn.

So, here is my monkey, without me, and a paltry bit of steam rising, not the elegant swirl I envisioned but couldn’t figure out how to capture.
