Bottles

Well this is another Theme Thursday topic which fits right in with my habit of snapping pictures of the Lost, Abandoned and Rubbish.

So here are three of my favourites:

green


Ipswich, Suffolk


and brown


South London



and festive


South London, by the Thames, on January 1st



What I like about these is the way each of them suggests so many stories...

what stories do they suggest to you?

Le'see...a picnic, a bar brawl, and the remnants of a Fasching parade! But that's just my interpretation...you give on to ponder here, you do :)

Alan Burnett said...

I agree about how they suggest tales of joy and sadness. Each could be a Theme Thursday prompt in itself.

Baino said...

I thought you'd actually 'staged' these shots.Did you find the bottle's just like that? Even next to a pair of shoes? Hey they're all alcoholic, how can there be tales of sadness or is it just me?

Brian Miller said...

whimsical series.... no one captures rubbish like lettuce!!

the brown snap cracks me up!!

Poetikat said...

The brown one reminds me of the poem I wrote for the TT theme "shoe".
These are great, Lettuce!

Betsy said...

They aren't staged? Wow...

I like the first one the best!

Deb said...

I like your photos...very artistic..

tut-tut said...

those shoes; very eerie. Great shots, Lettuce.

Jasmine said...

I like the idea of having enough champage to walk down alleys on the way home from a new year party and still have enough for the journey. Luxury! Would be difficult not to get ubles up your nose though :)

I suppose the vanishing of the imbiber with the liquid makes it appear that the imbiber has somehow melted into the environment (although I am reaching the end of Avilion, so melting in may be more on my mind) .

Titanium said...

Everyone's got a story to tell...

It's hard to say with these, where they've been and with whom.

Mine is here.

Stephanie said...

I'm wondering what that Bulmers Pear stuff is?

lettuce said...

thanks peeps.

nope, not staged at all. amazing, innit? I couldn't quite believe the beer/shoes thing. One shoe abandoned is surprisingly common - pairs not so much!

Stephanie, the Bulmers stuff is like cider, but made with pears not apples.

Roy said...

About that second shot... Budweiser is actually sold in London? Ewwwwwwww! I thought you Brits had better taste than that! Especially when Bass is on tap everywhere you turn. I'm so disillusioned.

I'm really impressed that you found these shots just like this. Good eye!

Tom said...

you forgot the bottle of liquor lying inside the trees at the local park. I know what that suggests.

JeffScape said...

You wanna know what they suggest?

They suggest that you've been drinking alcohol in public!

;)

Ronda Laveen said...

I think this suggests an entirely new Budwiser logo. Loved the brilliance of the green one too.

e said...

Looks like a bit of spam...

Is that Bulmer's Pear an alcoholic beverage?

The snap with the abandoned shoes is the most interesting to me...Perhaps someone left them in a hurry, along with the beer?

As to the champagne, it suggests optimism for a new year...I'd say more but mine is fading fast...

The flower cards are stunning...

Shammickite said...

My guess is that there's no cash refund on returning glass bottles.

lettuce said...

roy it certainly is. thats not to say that all of us drink it....
... i'm resisting the temptation to be rude about Bass tho.... being a real ale drinker by preference
:-)

Jeff how very dare you.

E, yes it is
and Shammikite, no there isn't!

Harnett-Hargrove said...

The first drinker had a nice sense for a color story. The second, was so in a hurry, he forgot to finish his bud and grab his shoes. The third... seems as though each friend thought THE OTHER was going to take the bottle! -J

Jill said...

My favorite is the first....I should like to try a bottle!

herhimnbryn said...

1. 'Trainspotting'.
2. 'Last of the Summer wine'.
3. 'Love Actually'.

Great images Lettuce Lady.

Hmmm...Perhaps a rash of alien abductions in your vicinity?
Great pics!
