Ming's Best Friends

These are two of the things I cannot live without -- a good cup of coffee and my iPhone. This photo was taken at La Colombe Cafe in Tribeca.

Okay, I admit it. I'm running out of new photos so this is an old photo from my archives.

So what can't you live without?

Me too, Ming! Say, your shot seems like the PERFECT American/NYC counterpart to Eric's classic Parisian shot of finished cups of coffee with the Euros on the table that he took by standing on the chair. . .you remember that one? This is an especially attractive shot and feels just like being there. I see you take cream, and that I can live without. Make mine black, please, like my iPhone.

Great shot Ming!

I can't live without my animals...my 6 dogs and 3 horses...okay i should say I can't live without my country life! =)

Coffee in the morning and tea the rest of the day ... British style, with milk, please, "ma freddo, non caldo, per favore". Then I guess I need a camera of some sort -:) I like the photo, by the way. Now, go make more photos!

My little technology gizmo that I cannot live without is a device that links my cell phone to my hearing aids, so I get the sound from my cell phone calls delivered right to the inside of both ears in stereo. The sound quality and volume is so good that I once listened to a lengthy conference call while sitting in the dental chair while the dentist was drilling away.

And of course I cannot live without my hearing aids, as without them I could not hear my wife speak. On second thought . . .

I can't live without many cups of tea all day long and...chocolate! Bad, I know, I know... Nice cup, Ming.

I agree with you...how can we live without a good cup of coffee?
Great shot.

Daryl said...

Ah.. in no specific order: my camera, my husband, my clothes, job, coffee ... friends ..

I'm eyeing the pretty cup. IPHONES aren't my thing. Apparently I can't live without my Mac and my camera or my Ipod Shuffle. Nice shot today.

this is a great photo. And we all need our bank of photos in archive so we can have a daily photo site. plus it is fun to do photo shoots and go back and see what is in the archive to choose from. Who can live without an iphone or blackberry or laptop. It is hard to believe what life was like without the technology of today. I am glad you liked the butterfly on my site. I have a really superb butterfly that will be up on Sunday. And, I will bet you have some butterflies in Central Park.

Great photo. Love the cup. No iPhone-just an older cell, but it keeps me connected. And of course, several cups of coffee in the morning.

The same as you Ming. Well I don't have an iPhone, but a normal portable but I need it (unfortunately) and also my coffee. It would be stronger than yours tho!

You and Lisa with those iPhones... Sheesh

valeria said...

I guess we're talking about "material things"...
so, I would say I couldn't live without many many things. My Leica, my laptop. Lip balm and hairdryer?

Gotta be strong black coffe. I can get round everything else( even the black eyeliner) so long as I have my coffee. Archives like this fine by me.

For running out of new photos, that I sorry you. For iPhone and a good cup of coffee, I so envy you...
Keep posting, there are millions things wait to be discovered in your NY city.

i absolutely could not live without my ibook. it's four years old and in desperate need of retirement, but i cant afford to buy a new one and i've come to love it for what it is.

Aaawww... :)
I am scared as how much I depend on my iPhone too: it is my alarm clock, my watch, camera, pedometer, newspaper, subway map, music, flash light, calculator, weather forecast, budget keeper, measure convertor, ... oh and it can be used as a phone too.
