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.

Antique Green Bottle

Still Life Glass Reflections

This photograph features an old green glass wine bottle – Chateau Lafite Grand Vin – dated 1898. I removed it from the ground as a child, when old bottle collecting was a favorite hobby. Today, you might enjoy it on the wall of your kitchen or dining area. A variety of fine prints are available in my gallery, and framed prints may be customized to suit your taste.

Thanks for shopping!

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.
