Taken for 'The Sunday Challenge': "Smell"

This is the local coffee roasting plant, sadly they weren't roasting when I took the image, but when they do the smell is wonderful and drifts for a very long way around the area.

Two years ago to the day before this photo was taken the first cases of covid in our town were recorded in staff at the plant who were visiting from Italy.

WOW. what memories. Great image. There was a coffee house I used to walk past in my early working days and it was a wonderful aroma. Sadly, for me,I prefer the smell to the taste. I don't mind the taste but,after the smell, it disappoints. And after all this time, my daughter had a trip to London last weekend to an exhibition and took COVID back to her house. Im grateful for the vaccinations she has had.

Love the smell of coffee but can't drink a lot of it for some reason. :( There is a roasting plant just our of town and when you drive by when they are roasting, it is very tempting to stop in and buy some.

I know that smell very well, I lived a year near such a roasting plant. It all comes back with your story. It appears we all have a smell memory somewhere. --- Vertaald door DeepL. --- Ik ken die geur heel goed, ik heb een jaar in de buurt van zo'n plant gewoond. Blijkbaar hebben we allemaal wel ergens een geurgeheugen.

les odeurs restent dans la mémoire. quand j'étais enfant dans notre ville il y avait un torréfacteur et je me souviens très bien de l'odeur qui envahissait l'atmosphère. merci de me l'avoir rappelé.
