Welcome to Photo of the Day. The POTD thread was started by iGary in May, 2006 and converted to a monthly thread in November 2007 by Arn. POTD is one of the most popular picture groups on MacRumors, often exceeding 500 posts and 20,000 views per month.

Photo of the Day is intended to be a showcase for your best pictures. There is no limit to your gear, just your imagination. P&S and film cameras are welcome along with DSLRs. There are no themes like the Weekly Contest, and no winners (or losers) either.

Policies

*One Photo per Day
- Don't post more than one photo each day.

October is here already? Guess we have to cross that bridge when we come to it.

It's National Black Dog Day! Yes, this is a (recently made up) thing. There is a stigma against adopting black dogs and they are often overlooked in favor of other color dogs. 😢

I've honestly never had a thought about what colour a dog is, in fact we adopted a black one 18 months ago.
It does seem they might be a little more naughty than others though ;)



Cheers :)

Emergence #4 Starbucks on Medlock (only people from Manchester will get this). This was one of the first coffee shops to re-open and was, in effect, operating as a hole in the wall and accepting mobile orders only. The weather was beautiful and I'd just discovered Starbucks iced brews (a reminder that Americans get ice - far nicer than iced tea and coffee I've had from British chains).

Just FYI - Appears to be another instance British/American word dual meaning. (When I lived in the UK, still remember the look on British neighbor's face when I stated I had a peanut butter and jelly sandwich then learned that "jelly" is the British word for American "jello" :) ) I also acquired a taste for coke with lemon and no ice, and room temp beer.

Starbucks Iced Brews appears to be a combination of two drinks - Iced Coffee and Cold Brew. I suspect you had iced coffee. Iced coffee is like it sounds...regular coffee served over ice. Cold brew is totally different as no hot water is used in the actual brewing of the coffee. Rather room temperature water in a container with long brewing, typically overnight. Both are good, however, I have far more frappuccinos than iced coffee and cold brew doesn't lose much when bottled so great first thing in the morning when camping.
