New challenge and a little bit later than I would have liked but I got there in the end.

I chose the theme "Bottles" as, well it has been done before but quite a while back now. It doesn't have to be only about the bottle as its contents can be important too.


1. The challenge is just for fun
3. Only b&w or sepia-toned images allowed.
4. Only one upload per member, uploaded in this thread.
5. If you win, you host the next week’s challenge - see note below.


Hosting involves starting a new challenge thread (with or without an example image - your choice) - and coming back at the end of the week to choose a winner.

You could drink as much as you like so the challenge is to keep the camera pointed straight at the subject. Smile

My local Vinmonopolet - the only source of legal alcohol sales in Norway. Supermarkets are allowed to sell beer only and then only under 4.75% proof. Anything over that has to be bought in the state-run outlets. 340 outlets with a range of over 30 000 products, although only a handful of the very largest stores stock the full range.

Time is now up.

I will be back with a verdict as soon as I can but I am just delayed at a Hospital as my elder son had complained of stomach pains. He is fine and probably just a little constipation but was a little distressed so we had him checked over.

Keeping things bottled to speak.
Glad he's fine and nothing a Tandoori won't resolve.

... or something out of one of the bottles above.

Back home from the hospital now and he's totally fine. We are not totally sure of why he experienced pain in his stomach but being autistic and having a phobia of hospitals and doctors his pain was soon caused by several number of things designed to get out of going. Heart rate through the roof when he got there caused by anxiety but he did rather well considering he is scared of medical places. He was soon telling the doctors and nursed that he loved them. Appendicitis ruled out so nothing to worry about now.

Hey I seem to remember that one of the doctors couldn't locate anything in his BNF. I assume he'd already taken the Appendix out.

Anyway I am just going to have to get to the point (This time) as I am knackered with only around three hours sleep before getting up for work. So this week I have decided to award the winner to Mark for his nice DOF offering of honest little bottles.

So well done to Mark and many thanks everyone for taking part this week. Smile
