Bile Beans

By chase
Most of my collection of old bottles. The red one and the yellow one were recent junk shop finds.
Lit by daylight camera left, halted by a piece of netting stuck to the window.

Raw files converted and merged in Lightroom, finished with a couple of texture layers in Photoshop.

I love the way the light plays on the wonky glass and yes a few of them are really wonky !!

Thanks for dropping by.
Mods and constructive critique welcome.

Fabulous, colourful old bottles, Jan and a superb composition.
I used to buy the green "poison" bottles, a a young Jedi, from Boots, for my potions.
A "tanner" a time!
I bet they cost a bit more now.

A tanner !! I wish, the red and yellow ones were 2 each. They say 'Boots Cash Chemist' on them, that's why I bought them. It did make my daughter laugh as I am always telling her "you smell like Boots cash chemist "... she never believed there was such a place, now she knows better Wink
The 'poison' bottles have ridges in them so folk could 'feel' them and know they were not to be taken...in the days before bedside lights or for the visually impaired I guess.

2 isn't bad if you take inflation into account and you're bang on the money re the ridges.
I seem to remember mentioning once that I like green, partly why I bought them. Smile
My mother threw all of them out when one exploded in her airing cupboard.Sad
