Thematic Photographic 217 - Drink up

Some kind of thirst
Shanghai, China
May 2012



















Say what you want about fruity flavored and colored drinks, but I think they look pretty neat.

I wasn't feeling the need to consume any of these, as we were scheduled to fly the next day and I didn't really want to spend a dozen and a half hours suspended above the planet with an alcohol-fed headache. Besides, I'm not much of a drinker to begin with (seriously, ask my wife.) Still, this artfully displayed sea of glasses seemed worthy of some lens love, especially given the challenge of shooting handheld in low light. I just couldn't resist.

For the next week, I hope you'll do the same. Our new Thematic theme, drink up, celebrates any form of consumable liquid. Given the fact that this is how we survive, I'm guessing you'll be able to come up with more than a few ways to photographically skin this proverbial cat.

Your turn: Take a picture of something drinkable - or remotely related to the concept - post it to your blog or website, then leave a comment here letting everyone know where to find it. Visit other participants, repeat the process as often as you wish, and invite a friend to join in. And, most important of all, enjoy the spirit of photographic sharing, as that's why we do the Thematic thing every week in the first place. What's Thematic? Click here and all will be explained.

Cheers!!! Although I never drink PRIOR to a flight, for risk of denied boarding (and I am also NOT a big drinker - regardless of what us Aussies are made out to be), but I will take a drink or two whilst inflight... Nothing more, other than a lot of water to remain hydrated!

Mines up as well at AussiePomm - Drink Up...!!!!

Have a great day!!

I'm loving the soothing color of the glass. They made me think of a picture I took last week, one I didn't like much, but your blue glassy arrangement took away the dislike ;-)

It makes me blue to think that these days I'm only allowed to indulge in soft drinks. Thanks Carmi for inspiring me with your glorious shot to remember some days gone by.

I can't wait to see what people come up with! http://spottychop.blogspot.com/2012/10/thematic-photographic-217-drink-up.html

I've always like the color of blue. Elvis Presely's last album "Moody Bue" was pressed in Blue plastic (in limited run) and I'm fortunate to have one!

I've delved into my store of France/Spain photos again- 'drink up' from a walker's perspective. http://kiwinomad06.blogspot.co.nz/2012/10/drink-up-tp217.html

What a stunning blue!
Here are my rather lacklustre suggestions for a drink.

Max Sartin said...

Great shade of blue, love the picture. Mine don't have any color, but here they are.

Took me some time to find some pictures for this one! But here are a few:

I've been a slacker all week, but I finally bellied up to the bar.

All we are saying, is give booze a chance!
