rainbow bottle

These stripes are rainbow coloured, honestly - a long sleeved t-shirt of my daughter's and my favourite bottle, In black and white for Flash of Red February, the last day of February. We had rain today and there was a real rainbow over the church, but that wouldn't work in b&w.

Three good things:
1. One of my bits of mending has unpicked OK and the new interfacing has stiffened the floppy collar, so I'm hoping this will work;
2. Daughter's shirt is coming on well
3. Today went better than I hoped - it's the anniversary of my assault

Thank you for looking and all your lovely comments and favs, particularly for the spiral staircase getting to the PP, you're all brilliant. I try to look at your pictures and comment rather than thank you individually below.
Excellent idea!

Good set-up! I like the way the glass plays with the stripes. I'm also glad that it was a good day for you and that a rainbow came after teh rain. My heart sunk at the day's significance.

The bottle is an interesting shape I can see why it is one of your favourites. I think my favourite part of the image however is the part where the striped background shows through the bottle. I might be tempted to crop in and make a sort of abstract with just that part.

A creative image -- well done!

Great concept and image.

@gardencat I did dither about doing just that, and played with various crops, but I would have had to crop a much longer thinner shape, and those shapes really aren't working on here currently. The last time I did something like this, I set it up better with a much straighter background (paper blutacked to a wall, better lighting), but where I set those shots up has been moved around with my daughter coming home, and I haven't worked out how and where to do indoor shots this time around. That bottle works well against an obviously straight stripe showing the distortions.

I especially like where the stripes have a loop in them looking through the bottle

Glad the day went better than you thought.
Love the little rebellious strips behind the glass :-)

you wouldn't believe it but seeing rainbow in black and white is rather nice; it's like browsing through the pages of the old life magazines! i like the refracted image on the jar.
