When WordPress came up with this week’s photo challenge, “Habit,” at first I could not think of a habit I have that I could illustrate. Then I looked around my office and started to notice several empty Coke cans and the flattened green glass Coke bottle I bought at an art fair that sits on my desk. (please see more photos and text below)
How much more obvious could it be? I have always been drawn to Coca-Cola, not just as a drink, but as a cultural phenomenon. Right down to the shape of the classic green bottle, for me, its the most recognizable U.S. product. No matter where I am, when I have a Coke in my hands, I feel I am home.
The top two photos were taken at the Mecca that is everything Coke, World of Coca Cola in downtown Atlanta, a
museum that that traces the history of the world’s most well known soft drink. It is a great place to take photos. At World of Coca-Cola, you will see things like a bottling machine exhibit and a collection of neon Coke signs. Oh, and at the end of your visit, at least when I was there, you could get a freshly-bottled Coke.
Below, is a photo of my flattened Coke bottle. The bottom photo was taken in Montross, Va., in front of an old Coca Cola bottling plant.
Thanks for dropping by today. Rob
