In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Rule of Thirds.”
I love taking photos; my phone is always in my hand to snap life as it goes on around me. I am always on the lookout for interesting angles and subjects that document my life. I am particularly keen on taking photos that make a comment on society.
I took this photo because the milk bottle took me back to my childhood when we were given a third of a pint of milk every day at school before going out to the playground for playtime. Being the “Milk Monitor” was a sought after responsibility and the wax paper straws often ended up flat and soggy!
I think that the old traditional milk bottles are a lovely shape; there is something very wholesome about them. They are also eco-friendly; once the contents have been drunk, they are collected up, washed and recycled. No plastic dumped in land-fill sites. Maybe we should bring them back?
