Sideways

I set up this selection of bottles (from The Good Earth) and then wondered what the heck I was thinking. A lot of crazy angles, foreshortening and reflections. Yikes! But it was a good challenge and left me wanting to do more. I think my favourite bit is the clear bottle. And thanks for the comments from yesterday. I hadn't heard of a concertina before and it was cool to hear from those of you that had fond memories of them.
