Mexican Coke

While walking along Adams Ave., just past Park Blvd, moving towards the overlook, in University Heights, I passed by an empty glass bottle of Coca-Cola. Oh, hell, why not take a photo? So I turned around, knelt down low, pointed Leica Q2, and shot the Featured Image. Vitals, aperture manually set: f/4, ISO 100, 1/1250 sec, 28mm; 9:48 a.m. PDT, Aug. 27, 2021. If only I had paid more attention, to either get the utility pole out of prominence or make it appear to sprout out the spout.

The 355-ml empty is what San Degians call Mexican Coke, because it’s bottled south of the border. The bubbly cola is uniquely popular, for its authenticity and flavor—cane sugar being the sweetener rather than the high-fructose corn syrup used in the States.
