The Milkman Was Feeling Blue Today

So let my get this straight, you emptied them while sitting in the old milk carrier. Harvey would be so proud. :) Great capture, Wally. Sorry I missed it first time, it was a month before I joined. And another big HBD to our dear friend, Darren. #400353

For our Yahoo Group's bottle theme. This is a resubmission with slight reworking of an image submitted the first month I joined BetterPhoto. It was exactly two years ago and it did manage to earn a finalist. It remains one of my personal favorites. These are Harvey's Bristol Creme sherry bottles (emptying them was part of the fun) in an old milk carrier.

Shot in bright indoors sun against white foamboard.
