Through the Drinking Glass

Allow me to fill you in on the birth of this photograph.  I was studying for my Block 6 Pharmacology/Pathology/Immunology final (fun, right?).  At the same time, I was enjoying a nice cold glass of grape juice.  Drinking the grape juice was infinitely better than studying, so I sat there and finished it in one shot.   Placing the glass down on my desk and looking inside of it to waste yet more time, I noticed that, “Heck, this could be a cool photo.”  Translation:  anything, including photographing grape juice residue, is better than studying for this darn final.  Grabbed the trusty Canon G7 and had a small photo shoot with my glass.  Then I popped the picture into Photoshop for some contrast adjustment and bleaching effects…and there you go!  Amazing timewaster…I mean, piece of photographic art!

Oh, and for those of you who are wondering, yes, I did pass that final and successfully completed my first year of medical school.  Yay!

  1. The odd thing about the photo is how it captures what your mind is like when you are studying for finals. Sort of an endless confusion with the core of knowledge inside.

    • “Endless confusion with a core of knowledge.” I think you may have just summed up medical school in one short phrase! 🙂 Again, I love your interpretations of photos! Always a treat to read your comments!
