I've heard how hot it is over your way, via the news and I bet the look of these bottles makes you really thirsty.
They make me want to drink them and it is quite cold today, though sunny!

It's been a long time since I saw soft drinks in bottles like that. It brings back memories.

Those make a beautiful shot. I love how something ordinary can be so photogenic.

LOVE seeing these bottles!
Where I grew up in (very) rural Iowa - that is all we had - bottles of soda!
I wonder if bottles are still sold anywhere around here??? Or must one go to India?

Those look like some old bottles. I remember drinking those back in the day. Happy WW:)

Would Slice or Dew taste the same as it does in the States? I think perhaps the Slice might taste a wee bit more orange than that here, rather like the old Orange Crush once tasted. And Mountain Dew? It'd taste as gawdawful there as here, I suspect!
Great photos...I love those bottles.

Dropping by to be nosy... hey I am being honest... over here in the US - well, my husband owns a business and I would say that 85% of our customers are from India and I see you 'talk' alot about India... funny part is that I - in a weird way - know what those bottles of drink taste like etc we do have a store here 'Best India' and that is where I go for Milo, 2 Minute Noodles, Baked Beans hahaha...

Okay, I am really enthralled with this shot...it looks like the soda bottles from my childhood...very retro.
