#28daysofwriting Day 21: Weekly Photo Challenge – The Rule of Thirds

In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Rule of Thirds.”

small milk bottle with straw sticking straight up on a table. This is in focus, in the background there is a cafe counter with people standing at it. It is blurred.

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?
