Theme Thursday - Bottle

Playing with the camera taking macro shots of some of my antique bottle collection.



Here come the videos! First is my favorite "bottle" song - "Message in a Bottle" by The Police. I picked this particular video because of the great animation by Neil Irwin and Keith Franklin to illustrate the lyrics.

And then there's Jim Croce's "Time in a Bottle". I especially love this video, which incorporates home movie footage of Jim with his wife and son. Yeah, I'm a sentimental sap! Enjoy!

  14. I can't listen to the Croce song. Not because there's anything wrong with it, but because it makes me too damn emotional. Not as bad as Send in the Clowns, but close! :)

    What beautiful bottles you have!
