Day 151 – 04/05/11 – Dopplerock

The daily shoot assignment for today is to focus on an edge.  Since the little ones are away at swim lessons tonight I figured I’d hit the daily shoot and knock today’s image out before they got home.

I originally planned on making an image of a coin’s edge, but then decided that would be too obvious.  Then it dawned on me that a beer bottle cap has an interesting edge, so I set out to use that as my subject.  Of course, to do so I had to open a beer (the sacrifices we make for our craft!), and I chose a Great Lakes Brewing Company Dopplerock, which I just discovered this weekend.

The bottle and box are so visually interesting on this brew that I quickly gave up on shooting just the bottle cap though.  I much prefer the image I made over the one I originally envisioned.  Besides, the edge of the cap is still in there, so I suppose the image technically still qualifies for the daily assignment…

    Yeah me too. Really nice! It’d be cool to have the shot even without the bottle cap. Bottles have edges, right? Right?!

      Thanks Duo! You know, to be honest, I’m not sure if the bottle does have an edge… I guess more research is in order, it’s really the only way to be sure! 😉

    Great job and a fantastic idea. Very creative. Does the beer taste good? The picture on the bottle looks interesting….good one..

    • Jim Reed says:

      Thanks Schleefy! The beer is great actually. I heard about it just recently, and had some over the weekend at a local restaurant. It turns out its seasonal and almost gone for the year though. Luckily I managed to buy the last couple of four packs at the store 🙂
