Thematic Photographic - Cloudy

Every week Carmi at Written, Inc. poses a theme for photographic inspiration. This week's theme is CLOUDY.

Pastis is a distilled spirit flavored with herbs, primarily anise. It's a popular apertif in France. The French dilute the spirit with water. The name, "pastis" comes from a word in Langue d'oc, the early language of Provence, that means "hazy."

Here, a jigger of pastis - brand name Ricard - is poured into a glass of cold water - which immediately turns cloudy.

Thanks to my devoted production assistant, I was able to capture the moment.

À votre santé!

I love how you've interpreted the theme. Delightfully abstract and interactive! You've got me thinking, now...thanks!

As intriguing as building a Guinness (that's a compliment)!

Lovely. What I'd like to know is how did it taste and would you voluntarily ever make or drink another? Interesting sounding drink but not sure about the taste so I'll wait to hear.

Hi, Kate - I did put ice cubes in the drink and sip it, but actually, I'm really not fond of pastis! Will have to try it in Paris this July - maybe it tastes better there!

Creative take on this theme!
Abstract - and cool :)

Have a great day!

This is so beautiful. Looking at this series of photos is like a peaceful meditation.

Your series of photographs took the theme Cloudy a step forward. Nice job!
