I wonder why I'm so very struck (since I found the image here, I suppose I could say 'verre-y struck') by the above image. It's partly that it is so well rendered qua glass, I suppose; and it has something to do with the unusual shape and the superb marine-blue colour. But I think the clincher is the lighting: the blue shadow with sparks of white-blue lightfire in it. The way the fills this empty bottle with something that appears almost fluid. Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful.
