Each week, we publish a gallery of readers” pictures on a set theme. This week it is “coffee break”, and we begin with a picture by Helen Errington.

Broken mug with coffee beans

Si Cunneen: ” I even found a mug with coffee break on it, so just had to buy it so I could break it.”

Pete Edmunds

Pete Edmunds: “My father enjoying a steaming cup of coffee complete with a mini milk bottle. This was shot in a Cheshire cafe in March 2015. A poignant shot, since it”s the last photo I took of him. He passed away five months later.”

Clock made of coffee cups and rolls

Graham Denyer: “Its 11:05, and my coffee clock says it”s time for coffee break. Be careful not to eat or drink the digits, as you”ll lose track of the time.”

Camera and a coffee

Beowulf Mayfield: “I was hoping to make use of a sunny day by taking some pictures by the Thames and put a 1960s Halina 35x film camera in my bag along with my digital [single-lens reflex (SLR) camera]. It was just as well I did, because I forgot to replace the battery in my SLR after recharging. A useful lesson learned. I stopped for a cappuccino at a riverside cafe and enjoyed sitting out in the winter sun – even if it was freezing cold.”

Woman on coffee break

Tim Evans: “Image taken on a shoot at Southport, back in the day we shot with film ([Kodak] Tri-X).”

Dinosaur and a cup of coffee

Chris Whittier: “My son”s toy dinosaur, which I photograph on travels, prepares to enjoy an elegantly prepared cappuccino in Kampala, Uganda, during a meeting break.”

In a hospital tea room

Nicola Santelmo: “In an operative room, all the coffee breaks are precious. These are some moments of relaxation between a lung transplantation and the surgery.”

Man in a coffee shop

Laura Greenwood took this picture in a coffee shop in Barcelona.

Woman with mugs in Namibia

Billy Thursfield: “While on holiday in Namibia, my wife and I enjoyed a welcome coffee after an early start to climb Dune 45 for sunrise. A wonderful way to start an amazing day visiting Sossusvlei and the Namib desert.”

Coffee capsules

Cynthia Ong-Lamb: “My love for coffee took me to this shot of our coffee-capsules holder. It”s also a joy seeing the capsules sliding down each time a capsule is removed.”

Coffee cup
