The View from Inside a Bottle

I inserted my Laowa macro probe lens into a bottle, a carafe, and a glass to make the images shown here from (literally) inside glassware.

Looking down the structure in the next one from deep inside the glass, I see a bubble that could well be our earth, imprisoned and looking out!
