The prosecco floats didn’t start out sideways. No, I had the strawberry, blackberry and lemon sorbet scoops contained in their tiny glasses—not beautiful, not perfect, but definitely enhanced and floated by the crisp sweetness of the prosecco. After only a few frames I lost my balance and knocked over the light-bouncing white board and going down with it— the styled prosecco floats.
The next shot is where the prosecco floats did start – upright.
The picture below was composed from what I was able to save from the spill. This was meant to be an easy entertaining idea for a 4th of July dessert, but from the spill to even the float itself, nothing worked out the way it was suppose to. For some reason I thought the blackberry sorbet would be a dark blue for a red, white and blue dessert, but its acutally purple—total concept fail, well with the exception of the taste.
Even in its mistakes the opening shot of this is post is one of my favorites. Maybe it resonates with me more since the picture seems to parallel my week with a personal issue that went from happy hopefulness to sadness. And finally ending with a beautiful mess.
