Milk tins always make for great shots. Well done.

Last time I used this was 20 years ago in Germany, to get some fresh milk straight from the udder of neighbor's cows. Good times. Warm milk. Real milk.

Timeless. Or rather, probably antique now.

Beautiful rural image Brattcat, I can just imagine those milk cans filled with warm white milk!
btw Aimee and I agree that it would be very lovely to have you join us in our coastal walk. You'd love the kangaroo one also I bet!

Yours was the second milk picture I saw today. The first was the winner of the Indianapolis 500 pouring milk over himself after he won the race. I like the calming effect of your photo better.

I missed your photo yesterday due to work, but the delicate lighting was magical. And I have never seen nor heard of flour or sugar bins.

I think you could make ANYTHING look like a work of art. Today is no exception!

As a kid, I was in a farm, and we used such tins to bring milk back home.. Fabulous shot!

This is a still-life painting if I ever saw one. Delightful

I love old-fashioned milk cans.

I am thinking that I need to put this place on my list for summer trips.

Those milk cans are more than functional, they're sculptures. Lovely.

Only in a plastic jug, for better or worse, but the light and composition are gorgeous.

I have been enjoying your series from the Billings Farm. Those milk cans look fairly modern.

Lovely light and the relaxing mood!

The lighting, the mood, the contrasts = a great photo, brattcat! Did you lap up some of the milk?

Very nice shot! I love how ordinary things can become art.
