Been a long time occasional reader, mostly just searching threads for information about this or that. Decided to post because I made some absinthe photos the other night, thought I'd come to other drinkers to get their opinion on how the series is going so far.

Nice photos Fox.

Would you mind terribly dropping by the newcomers area and start your own thread. Tell us a little about yourself so we can welcome you all proper like. :)

I mean no offense. There are bottles of extraordinary booze out there. I've tasted a few. Relax.

Very nice photos, indeed, Fox. :thumbup:

You got a problem with that?

making me thirsty!

The room it smelled heavy of drinkin',  

and the sad silent song, made the hour twice as long,

as I waited for that sun to go sinkin'.

You may want to try clicking them if it shows the "click for full image" banner at the top of the picture or right click, select copy image url, and paste it into the address bar.

Good to hear, been in a bit of a rut lately, not to happy with what I've been making. So glad to see I'm producing something good again... Last set of pictures I did were just awful. Haha.

Very nice!

We are our own worst critics, I bet they weren't nearly as bad as you thought.

Can't decide on this one, is it a good example of louche and worth touching up more or if it just looks strange.

I agree on the tough call, but I don't think it's even close to can worthy. :thumbup:

I dunno, it just doesn't look drinkable, I'm sure the issue is the container, but it looks kind of disgusting as is. Especially taking another look at it now that it's a few days behind me, if I were putting myself in the place of having no explanation as to what it is, all I can see is a jar of male *ahem* matter.

Maybe I can find a shotglass that looks a scale wineglass, to add a bit more context to it.

^That's exactly what came to mind for me too.

We have 4 of them...they are very delicate. I think they came with a fancy vodka or something.
