This rather large bottle of wine caught my eye… I can’t imagine why. It seemed very apt to photograph a wine shop in Bordeaux, given Bordeaux is the major wine industry capital of the world. Of course, I had to partake of a glass or two while I was there… it would be rude not to! Sadly my little carafe wasn’t as big as that bottle!
I was experimenting with taking photos from ground level, to get a different perspective. I like the way it gives attention to the cobbles, but the eye is still drawn to the structure of the building.
I took a few of these at the time, but this was the best – I just wish I hadn’t got the guy walking into the shot. I guess I could have Photoshopped him out, but in a way he gives a slightly warped sense of scale which I quite like!
