Drifting Away by alltelleringet Drifting Away by alltelleringet
I shot this in a lake this summer with a under-water-case. I became quite dark in the end but I liked the contrast between the warm inside and cold outside of the bottle. I would love to hear your thoughts about it. Improvements or changes.

What comes to your mind when you see it?!

i immediately saw the bottle floating and thought of notes in bottles sent out to sea. not knowing who would get them. with this it's like a little world floating along, not know who will find it. the lighting and droplets make me think of a storm that has just passed though. like inside is safe and sound even if the res is unknown.

That is incredible.. 

You ask, what comes to mind when I see it, I think of being far away from home, losing ones sense of comfort. Inside the bottle, inside ones hometown, a feeling of safety and everyone knows everyone. Outside of the bottle, the deep, dark, unknown, I feel that that would be the "uncharted" rest of the world, outside of that safe bubble per say, what could possibly be dangerous and scary. In the end, as much as we all want to go out and discover, there's always a part of us that misses home. 
Just a thought. 

It definitely makes you think, I appreciate that.

I like the way it seems as if we are observers from a similar bottle  - the water droplet and the scratches on the glass thru which we observe; which adds pathos and the sense of being trapped and awash ourselves. On the negative side, the land within the bottle doesn't work for me as it seems too rigid inside a bobbing bottle which destroys some of the dynamics, and the lighting inside the bottle doesn't match the light source (hard to do I know). Perhaps if you had made the land inside the bottle an island bobbing on water contents, and made it more mysterious, dark silhouette?  Still, overall great imagination and creativity.

So interesting. Love the job of the details in the environment and water/ocean.
I think in the possibility that this was an image of the city through the glass but now I watch carefully, is more like a city "trap" (or maybe safe) in the bottle.

We might be living in a " bottle" which is being observed by other creatures.
