Thematic Photographic 287 - Liquidity

Quenched
Toronto, ON
March 2014
I forgot how much fun it can be to shoot pictures in a supermarket. If you work fast, you can usually avoid stares from employees and fellow shoppers - and the dreaded PA call for security. I snagged this watery scene as we were just about loaded up at the checkout. One of the cashiers nearby saw what I was up to, but I think she was too weirded out to bust me.

I was tempted to ask her why bottled water often seems to come in blue-tinted bottles. Is it a purity-image thing? Does it take ordinary tap water and make it seem like it was captured from a cold mountain stream? Does it fool anyone?

But I quickly thought otherwise, because the PA button probably wasn't too far away, and decided a quiet exit was the advisable path.

Your turn: Thematic's theme for the week is "liquidity". If it's liquid, or it even suggests something liquid-like, shoot it, post it, and leave a comment here letting folks know where to find it. For more info, head here. As Thematic's been a little quiet lately, feel free to ask a friend to join in, or post a note and a link (here) on your blog, Facebook, or Twitter (Hashtag: #ThematicPhotographic.) Because this thing gets more fun when more folks participate.

I can't wait to see what y'all come up with for this one. It should be fun.

Carmi, here is some liquidity. But not as drinkable as yours.

What is it about supermarkets that they don't like people taking photos?
