Coffee Art Like You’ve Never Seen Before

If you are looking for a barista who is going to work fast and churn out that coffee, then this guy isn’t for you. But if you’re looking for art? This is your guy.

South Korean barista Lee Gang-bin is the co-owner of Cafe C.THROUGH in Seoul, Korea. And his coffees are a sight to behold. He uses colored icing (which he calls “cream art”) to transform that regular cup a joe into something else.
As he told CNN, “Coffee is a fairytale to me. It helps me express exactly what I want and brings my dreams to life. People who specialize in latte art usually only use two colors: black and white. But I wanted to break that color limit.”
The only downfall to his creations is that his coffees take close to an hour to create and he only makes three a day! And they are made by reservation only. But you can request just about any picture including storybook characters, Van Gogh’s “The Starry Night” and Vogue Korea magazine covers.
Don’t worry that you won’t get anything, however, if you come to the Cafe C.THROUGH. He has other items on the menu as well for walk-in customers. As he says, “We are baristas making coffee, not just artists drawing pictures on coffee,” he says.

Did You Damage Your Eyes During the Eclipse?

The experts certainly made it very clear that people should not look directly into the sun during the recent solar eclipse. But if you did look at it without protective eyewear, you are probably worried that you may have damaged your eyes. But have you?

Google Trends showed a spike on Tuesday morning, after the eclipse, of people searching for “eye pain.”

How do you know if you actually damaged your eyes? Symptoms can begin just a few hours after exposure, or they can take a few days to develop.

Symptoms that you should consider include:

* Watery eyes that last for more than a minute

* Soreness and discomfort when moving your eye

* Sensitivity towards bright lights near you

* Blurriness or blind spots in the center of your vision

If you are still unsure whether or not you damaged your eyes, you can look at the Amster Grid eye test which is used by doctors to detect issues with vision. You can print the grid that they offer and place it 14-16 inches from your eyes.
