FOHBC 2014 Lexington National | Spotted on Tables
13 August 2014
As you can probably imagine, I get quite a bit of bottle show pictures from various folks who are trying their best to capture their show. Some hope for a place in Bottles and Extras or a special post on Peachridge Glass or the FOHBC site. Many times, I have to politely sidestep the photography as quite honestly, the work is mediocre, the lighting bad or the subject matter poor. At the end of the day, all of these pictures seem to look the same, just like every exit Elizabeth and I zoomed past as we drove the 16 hours from Peach Ridge to Lexington. We probably passed 1,700 or so McDonald signs.
What I offer here, are some simply wonderful photographs from our FOHBC photographer, Scott Selenak from Los Angeles, California. I typically turn Scott loose and let him capture the flavor of a show. He is not a bottle collector but a lover of art and an expert on impression. Not the most expensive bottles, but just good pictures. Pay close attention as to how Scott does his photography. We can all learn something here, including myself.
I am not going to caption these pictures as I think they are pretty self-explanatory.
