Through the Looking Glass

I don’t (yet!) have a proper photographic lensball like Jez (any perceived hint of covetousness is purely imaginary, honest…!), but when Nancy Merrill posted her Photo A Week Challenge on the topic of ‘glass’ I decided to be creative and experiment with the nearest equivalent I do have to hand at home right now – basically a plain glass paperweight with air bubbles trapped artistically inside the sphere.

Sadly I think there’s far too much going on within this particular ball of glass for it to work as brilliantly I’d hoped, but at least I had fun trying – this is the nearest I got to having the flower even the slightest bit in focus, and I actually kind of like the overall blurry effect… 🙂
