This is a glass bottle dated 1924 that was found in the Sonora Desert in Arizona. I was in Fernandina Beach, FL and a shopkeeper had it in a display. She told me that she had found it where they were doing an excavation and that they figured it had been buried for 80+ years.

So what you see is the patina on the outside of the bottle....the primary color of the bottle was the green...it was such an amazing piece I asked her if I could take it outside in the sun to get some pictures of it (she really must have thought I was over the edge)...

I wish I could have set this up properly - tripod and a cool backdrop...or been able to put a pen light inside shining out...now that would have been really neat!!!

I got several other shots of this that I will post so you can see the many different colors and patterns on the bottle...I wish I had taken a picture of the whole bottle...thought of that later...sigh

Ok... I just realized that almost 6 years ago this was among my selections in the "Pick your fav image from the person above you" side challenge. This week I had the realization that "picking a favorite" should have included a comment about why. So I've been back over the last 1600+ posts to make amends for my omission. Here's my belated comment:

I really enjoy looking at (and creating) photo abstracts. This one particularly caught my eye. The color palette and deep saturation combines so well with the diagonal movement! I'm not usually a fan of thick borders, but here they add an enhancing dimenson. Nicely done!

Finally, it holds up well to time. This exercise of mine (returning to view an image after several years) confirms my appreciation of your photo.
