Imperfection

In my considered opinion, its absolutely true – imperfections are perfectly beautiful. Unique characteristics provide interest and greater beauty than that which is otherwise commonplace. Relative to this vintage glass macro photography, it’s the air bubbles, variations in thickness of glass, color and discolorations, pitted surface, etc., which make it especially appealing.

Imperfect Beauty

It is the degree of unique variations in the face of a lovely woman which serve to define beauty, in my opinion, not cookie-cutter uniformity. This same interpretation can be applied across a spectrum of subject matter, including vintage glass bottles. Here, characteristics that are one of a kind – air bubbles, asymmetrical color, scratches, chips and stains, etc. – provide for an imperfect beauty with far greater appeal.

Bottom of A Bottle

This close-up photograph features the bottom of an old bottle with many air bubble imperfections, and embossed lettering Cantrell & Cochrane. I think that it once contained mineral water, ginger ale, seltzer water or medicated aerated water.
