Jack Daniels Single Barrel the only way to go over my photos.

Jack Daniels Single Barrel

F/6.3, 1/60, ISO 100, Light Box.

Jack Daniels Single Barrel is my favorite drink while I am going over my photos. So this inspired me to create this image. Although I have not been shooting with film for quite some time, this is the way I pictured it if I would.

 

Interesting Fact:  Just one out of every 100 barrels are set aside to mature in the highest reaches of barrelhouses, where dramatic temperature changes cause the color and taste to deepen further. Each barrel is hand-selected for its one-of-a-kind flavor, robust taste, and notes of toasted oak, vanilla, and caramel.  ( http://www.jackdaniels.com/whiskey/jack-daniels-single-barrel )

The hemisphere begins to warm significantly causing new plant growth to “spring forth,” giving the season its name.  ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spring_(season) )
