Make a Splash Canada!

196/365 - This shot was inspired by an image I saw from in his project 365 that he just completed a few days ago - congrats Ed. I changed it up a bit and instead of doing a cookie/coffee shot I decided to use some limited edition Olympic Coke bottles that my kids gave me for Christmas. I am a big time Coke guy (Coca-Cola) so every once in a while my kids grab me something as more of a gag gift than anything else. Tomorrow at my son's school they actually get to run with the torch during the cross Canada relay as it makes its way to Vancouver for the start of the Olympics. The glass just happens to be a limited edition coke glass from the 1976 Olympics that were in Montreal that I got as a kid, I wonder where and when I got addicted to Coke (Coca-Cola) hmmmmm.

Strobist: Static Ikea light with daylight balanced CFL bulb above and at 7 o'clock, sun through window as rim. Technically that's qualifies to be posted as a strobist shot, doesn't it? I did alter the scene through artificial light just not a strobe :)
