The Tuesday Inspiration: Unwanted?

by Helen Hooker August. 23, 2011 4167 views

I spotted this Coke can left on the pavement when I popped into Chichester this afternoon and it struck me as a good subject for today??s theme. With its strong single colour it also occurred to me that it would be an ideal candidate for the selective colour treatment.

Thanks to Liz [photoblog.com] for setting today??s theme. Last Tuesday??s theme was ??beating??. The other interpretations of this week??s theme can be found here [photoblog.com].

The ??Tuesday Inspiration? began in 2009 when Stefan [photoblog.com] and I started setting each other a photographic challenge on a? Tuesday. Very soon afterwards, we decided to open this up to other PB members, followed by the idea that we should not reveal what the subject is, so that other members could compare how different members view a single theme. The Tuesday Inspiration is not a contest or a challenge, but a group of people all agreeing to post their interpretation of a single theme on Tuesdays. Each week, one of the contributors sets the theme. There are now over 40 members contributing to the TI. We have only two ??rules?: don??t include the subject in the TI title or tags and please comply with standard PB guidelines on courtesy, etc. If you would like to take part, please send me a message via this blog.

fantastic capture and excellent selective colouring (I'm a professed Coke lover so I'm a bit biased) :-))

Awesome shot for the TI Helen! And warm Coke? That's just wrong.

Cool! Love the little flash of light on the can! Is Coke in the UK still served warm, right off the shelf? That's one thing I remember from when I lived there....after having cold Coke all my life it was hard to get used to that!

Excellent image on both counts. I am no longer drinking soda, but Coke is my favorite. Plus it helps to clean the extra acid off battery cables. :)

Well, to me it is "unwanted", I do not like the taste of Coke ... unless there is beer with it. ;)) (A beer glass two fingers high fill with cola and add the rest jupiler) that we call "a mazoutje".

So, for the theme ... pom-pom-pom ... no idea, sorry.

For the image, what can I say, you are good, so damn good!
