Correct me if I am wrong, you were trying to convey something with your pictures and wanted the bloggers to interpret the photos..here's my take on it:
I think its a perfume bottle and inspite of being abandoned on a deserted beach, it has takers...were you trying to say "a talent blooms where it's planted?" or "if one's gifted, people recognise you even if you are in the dumps"..

Silly Adventures said...

first time on your blog. very nice pictures. will visit again.

Samudraa said...

ahhhh! lovely ones......like this more than any other pic uve posted here b4.Dwelling on sudarshan's interpretations...:)

Aradhita said...

ummm...still decoding...???!!!

(lovely color btw)

gulnaz said...

ooh this is so romantic and exciting! did you read the message? or are you the one who has tossed out the bottle?
and arent those clam? why they are clinging to it?
this bottle reminds me of that kevin costner movie, but it ended too sadly for me! :(

Brood Mode said...

abandoned when it has nothing more to offer...

should be some message..going by the clinging curiosity shown by the clams..! sharp and crisp pics, these.

gulnaz said...

....or like a piece of luck found, unexpected and just when needed most. :)

finnegan said...

/t/ wonders what the message in the bottle says.

If you look real close, you can read a few remnants of caution, one of which is:
"Do not use near fire or spray in the eyes of others...if ingested, you can forget about starting up any extended novels".

/T/ - Don't we all? Thanks for dropping by.

sneha - Sometimes, pictures alone convey what you want.

Sudarshan, Brood Mode - Nice interpretation!

Silly Adventures - Thanks for dropping by and commenting.

Samudraa, Aradhita, Ram - Thank you.

gulnaz - So many questions. What do you think the answers are? ;-)

gulnaz (2nd comment) - Interesting thought.

finnegan - LOL

Jithu said...

superb fotos man! amazing clarity! is it due to population explosion in the sea? ;-)

Akshay said...

these pictures are brilliant, I saw them on flickr too.
Anyways heres a question what the stuff on the bottle ?

Slice Of Life said...

uma

jawaher said...

lovely pictures ....is it the message of life ?.that we all want 2 live and be alive no matter what is the situation we live in ??

Ubermensch said...

Hey,augustus, hope you forgive me for this; Its a goddamn bottle with a message to get as many bottles and empty into the liver.
So i off;)

Billy said...

cool vibes

. : A : . said...

jithU - Thanks. I am not sure what it is due to. :-)

Akshay - They are some kind of clams though they did not seem to be alive at the time.

chennai pages - Will wait for your interpretation.

jawaher - Could be.

Ubermensch - Haha.

Billy - Thanks.

Lorena said...

an empty bottle perhaps forcing you to look inside yourself for all the answers.

beautiful photographs A!

.m. said...

Nice pic, even nicer 'corals'... lovelier sand........ sighhhhh.

btw there's a 'legend'/'story' which goes in some religions from my country, that one shouldnt open such bottles--cos they might be containing 'genies'. more about it later.

chaos said...

was wondering if those sea shells were planted by you (to deco the object) ... or they came up naturally... anyway, nice capture!

PS: i hv become fan of your shots :)

Shy said...

not to sound generic, but i must agree with the color comments. maybe i just like green....very nice photo.

gulnaz said...

Well, i could give you all the answers but only you would know if they are right....or wrong? and what if they are wrong, will i be punished? and what is the reward if i'm right. ;)

Anne said...

What gorgeous pictures! I really should get my digital camera all sorted and post some pics myself.

. : A : . said...

Lorena - Good perspective!

Wbix - Thanks. Do tell us more about this legend.

chaos - It was 100% natural. I shot what I saw. Thanks.

Shy - Thanks.

gulnaz - I probably would, but there might be others who also will. No punishment, no reward. :-)

Anne - Yes, I am going to wait for that!

gulnaz said...

hmmm, no reward....in that case the only answer you get is, this-
*smiles*

jenn see said...

that's a charming image, very treasure-island-y.
i love the random things you can find washed up on the beach.

jaded said...

wow as usual..
and you are right, sometimes words arent required..
and btw you have a great eye for picking up good stuff.i have said it before and i will repeat this:
honey, you have a gift!

venus said...

interesting pictures! What do these pictures give message? two opposites- nature confronts artifact. Human waste is not leaving any place left on earth, so sad for ecology and hence for us.

mustngsue said...

Cool photo...yes I agree with /t/ what message might be in the bottle?

Renee Wagemans said...

The message has been read, the carrier was of no use anymore..... until the clams wrote their story on the glass to be remembered in a picture

luz de la luna said...

Nice pic! I like the second to last the best.

Attaching romantic and inventive notions to everyday objects is called keeping the child alive in our hearts. All the time the child is alive so are we. Good you share it :-)

small squirrel said...

hmmmmmm.... lovely and provocative and I cannot for the life of me imagine a thing right now... but that green is a lovely color and I wonder where my wishes have gone... I forgot to place them in a bottle

Police???
Walked out this morning, don’t believe what I saw
Hundred billion bottles washed up on the shore
Seems I’m not alone at being alone
Hundred billion castaways, looking for a home

mermaid said...

This is one of my ways of sending messages to the forces of Nature. The other is attaching a message to a balloon, and releasing it to the sky.

Which reminds me...time for a message in a bottle...

. : A : . said...

gulnaz - I'll settle for that.

jenn see - So do I. Thanks.

jaded, luz de la luna, small squirrel - Thanks!

venus - Agree.

mustngsue - Thanks for dropping by and commenting.

Poems and Writings - Nice perspective.

gypsynan - Could be.

mermaid - :-)

iamnasra said...

It was a message for me...This reminds me the Author Nicholas Sparks with his story message in the bottle....

I love how the shells resided on the bottle...

. : A : . said...

iamnasra - Glad you could identify with it.

MissQt said...

When I started using the net like 5 or 6 years ago, I wanted to do such a thing. I wanted to take a bottle and put my email adress (safer! lol) and a message and just throw it away in the river and wait until someone writes. I doubt someone would've even found the bottle though! lol

Had not checked your blog in a while but it's always a pleasure to read you or look at your pictures! :)

. : A : . said...

MissQt - Welcome back! Good to see you again.
