This week’s challenge calls for something close up, and I remembered taking this photo of a glass pistol during the tequila factory tour in Mexico. All the little imperfections in the cork and the light reflected in the barrel look pretty neat at this angle. Since today is apparently National Tequila Day, I thought it’d be worth posting. Talk about putting the shot in shot glass!
I should preface this by saying that I don’t drink; I’m a water, tea, and milk kind of guy, so I went around taking photos while everyone else was taking shots. This was taken at El Baston del Rey, a tequila factory that was part of a city tour in Puerto Vallarta. But since today is apparently National Tequila Day, I thought I’d post it.
Do not adjust your set; that really is a wave suspended in a kind of glass! One of the exhibits at the Exploratorium, the Confused Sea shows how the wind affects the motion of the ocean. You can change the speed and direction of air, thus creating some choppy water!
There’s a certain building in the Bay Area that has these reflective panels as its entrance decorations. If viewed from a certain angle, people can see images engraved in the glass. If viewed from another angle, it gives a bizarre but beautiful reflection of the sky. And no, this wasn’t photoshopped; it was just taken at the right spot and time.
If you’re somewhere in the North Bay and want something yummy and local, give Gracie’s a shot. Great sandwiches, salads, and of course, barbeque. If you happen to look up from your food, you might notice these re-purposed jars hanging overhead.
