Photo Hunt: Glass

Photobucket




*sigh* I wanted to share these old glass milk bottles. My grandfather used to be a milk man, back in the day when they still delivered these bottles to your doorstep in the early morning. These are from the farm that he drove for.






But....... being the procrastinator that I am, I waited until the last minute to try taking some photos. I'm not real happy with how they turned out. This is the best of what I got but it's not the original.





I'm on my laptop right now and haven't taken the time to install my new Photoshop Elements on it. So I went to a site called picnik.com and found a "1960s" setting that I applied to it. I thought that was kind of fitting because of the age of the bottles. I like it better but still wish I would have maybe had something to fill them with so you can read the writing better and not see the writing on the opposite side show through.



Live and learn, I guess!

It is a wonderful picture, even better because of the meaning behind it.

we delivered milk to our school in those bottles, circa 1943, I was 8 years old. We milked the cows and bottled the milk
