288 - "Say Pepsi, Please"

From 365 Project
This is a close up of an embossed Pepsi-Cola logo on a mid-1950's vintage bottle. My father used to pick up old bottles whenever he found them. When I was young we would walk along the side of the road and collect discarded soda bottles and return them for the deposit. His shop had a lot of old bottles in it and this is one of several he gave me a number of years ago. I filled it with fresh Pepsi from a can for the photo. Canon Rebel XTi, 1/6 sec @ f/11.0, ISO 100, 50mm macro lens. Back light from the micro LED Litepanel.

That one is really cool. We are Pepsi drinkers...much to the chagrin of our good friends who work for Coke.

Janet, my wife was appalled that I sacrificed a perfectly good Pepsi to make this photo. She said I was just taking things too far in the pursuit of "my art". At least it wasn't the last Pepsi in the house.
