Weekly challenge #317."I'll drink to that"
Posted By: charliezap, 03-03-2015, 01:07 PM

What an honor and privilege to be once again hosting the Weekly Challenge".I'll raise my glass or cup and "I'll drink to that" which ironically is the theme to the new challenge.

Let's have some fun with this challenge.I'm looking for any photo that has anything to do with ANY kind of a beverage be it spirits-coffee-tea-milk-soda etc.Be creative-artsy-weird or whatever comes to your mind that conveys the theme.I'll include some examples here and I will add a few more as the challenge progresses to stimulate your brain with eclectic examples.

The contest will run until midnight Wednesday Boston time March 11th 2015.

I think that I have all the bases covered.--I am looking forward to seeing what you can "WOW" me with.---charliezap

Every week, a new theme is picked and judged by the winner of the previous week.

Everyone is eligible to send in their best interpretation of the given theme, as long as the photo is taken with a Pentax/Samsung camera. Themes can be subject-oriented or technique-oriented.

1. Post ONE photo (max 1024x1024).
2. The photo must portray an interpretation of the theme.
3. Post your single picture in this thread and explain what motivated you to take the picture and/or how you feel it represents the weekly theme (especially if it's not obvious).
4. The challenge is interactive. Any response is welcome.
5. The judge will pick the WINNERS and choose one of them to be the judge for the next week.
6. This challenge runs for 7 days plus an additional day for the judge to choose the winners.
7. Any Pentax (or Samsung DSLR) camera can be used.
8. Pictures can be from any time frame, not just within the week of the current theme.
9. In case the winner of a challenge is unable to become the judge for the next challenge, they will PM the #2 winner for that person to be the judge.

Last summer when Crested Butte became "Whatever, USA", basically a big Bud Light commercial. The musician is someone famous but now I forget who that was. That party made me feel pretty old!

Edit to add: it was Lil Jon, who is apparently pretty popular with people half my age.

Still Tasty after All These Years

The whiskey still at Star Hill, KY, where they make Maker's Mark Bourbon. Bourbon is clear (see the stream of liquid behind the trademark) before it goes into the charred oak barrels, where it gets its color.
