This is my collection's fifth mug and I'm enjoying drinking this hot chocolate from it as I create this post.

Photo of the Setup
The tabletop and background are separate pieces of the same model of vinyl floor tile. This photo of the setup may not adequately display that the lamp on the left is behind the subject and that the lamp on the right fitted with a gel is slightly forward of it.

Just crop it from the bottom and from the top , then no one can guess what it is. You can also crop from the RHS in addition to the crops from the top and the bottom and you get a very nice abstract. Those are my first thoughts when I look at the image, but of course it is a nice shot as it is Mike.

Thanks, Binnur (and for all your other comments as well)!

I actually thought of capturing the scene that way in the camera when I first made the photo because it really does make such an artistic image. However, then I realized that since this is a photo that is just one part of a series of many photos about hot chocolate, it's better that I make the photo both as realistic and instantly recognizable as possible.
