Round and round in circles (theme)

by Helen Hooker March. 28, 2012 7812 views

I had plans to photograph a soup spoon to cover both elements of today??s circles and symmetry theme. However, I??d overlooked the fact that spoons are very reflective objects and when I tried my chosen composition I just ended up with lots of ugly reflections. With limited time before I started teaching again I hurriedly cast around the house for an alternative subject and hit upon this Stella Artois bottle, something I??ve used on several previous occasions. Thanks to the highlights created by the sunshine it??s not a completely symmetrical image (that and the fact that I found an off-centre composition worked better) but I have at least fulfilled the circular element of the theme!

Very cool shot! I did some shots with an empty water bottle a few weeks ago, too. I love the green in yours!

This photo is magnificent, it goes to my favorites for its color, its light and the fact that it seems unreal...
Did you answer the roguish Tomie's question ? :))

I have never seen a bottle of Stella look more beautiful, except perhaps ice cold and full of beer after a long hard day in the garden!
