lens-artists photo challenge #66; filling the frame

Patti, want us to fill the frame …. and I have also filled the glasses.

I never drink alcohol at home on my own … but I drink when I travel on my own … and I enjoy a drink at my friends’ company both at home and away.

My relationship to wine changed after my chemo treatment … it doesn’t taste the same anymore, but a glass of a nice wine with great food … still thrills me.

“There comes a time in every woman’s life
when the only thing that helps is a glass of champagne.”
Bette Davis

“99% of all problems can be solved by money —
and for the other 1% there’s alcohol.”

and wants us to be happy.”

I don’t drink beer, but my friend did in Amsterdam – April 2017

“I wonder if there is a margarita
somewhere out there thinking about me too.”

Not much can beat a great Frozen Margarita when it comes to cocktails!!!!!  This I enjoyed in Hong Kong – March 2019

but too much champagne is just right.”
F. Scott Fitzgerald

  1. This is wonderful, Viveka. I love how you arranged your post around a glass of wine/beer and used that to frame the shot. Your post is certainly very original! My favorite is your shot of the harbor in Sweden. Lovely. It’s great too that you were in such good company with other bloggers!

    • Patti, at the start I didn’t know what direction I was going with your topic. Have so many images with filled frames … Thank you so much for your kind words and support. It was a fun topic you gave us. I like the harbour image too, but I had hoped it would have come out a bit more focused on the masts. So glad you like it. Yes, I love to meet up with my blogging world .. when I have the chance. Sue was over visiting Annn Christine and me for a week. We had a good time.

  2. I’m feeling rather jealous now. You’ve filled the glasses very nicely. 🙂 🙂 And I’m just remembering to say thanks for the postcard. A lovely report on your visit to Porto. Still hot here and we have company. Sending hugs! And ‘cheers!’

    • Hi there, Girlfriend … Yes, one filled glass of wine or champange is perfect for me … cocktial I could go fro 2 filled ones. *smile Glad you got the card …. it was far too hot for me, so I will visit in the beginning of May next time. Can’t handle the heat anymore and neither can my feet. Enjoy your 24/7 and Cheers.

    • Anne, thank you so much for your visit and taking the time to comment. *smile. I wanted to go outside the box a little with my images. So glad you like it. Cheers to you.

  3. Viveka – what a fun and interesting response to the challenge, I loved it! Who knew that a simple glass of whatever could become such a great post! The photos are wonderful and the quotes are perfect. Good for you for grabbing life with gusto after meeting your health challenge head on!
