An Evening Ale

by Edgar Baird February. 01, 2010 5381 views

The first day of February started off a bit difficult~photographically speaking, that is. It was just one of those days where I couldn't find anything that fit my mood.

So I decided to have a nice ale and think things over. No sooner than I'd filled the glass I had my epiphany: todays picture is right here in my hand! Of course I immediately forgot about partaking of the fermentations and started setting up my shot.

Overall I'm happy with todays image. At first the fact that there was some lint on the glass killed me, but I let it go. I'm slowly learning that I'm not trying to capture a perfect world, I'm trying to capture the world as I see it, with all of it's wonderful lint and imperfections. If I keep that in mind~I'll always be surrounded by great images.

Wow, love this shot! I think the lint wouldn't bother you at all after partaking of the ale :)

I really like this! The light on the head is terrific and what you say about the lint is spot on. Also your taste in beer is top notch...nothing better than Belgian!
