Weekend Reflections: The House of Glass (I)

CIMG5418-001

Not easy to make out what’s what in this photo. You might be tempted to think I was looking through the glass case towards the windows, but the windows that you see here were actually on the wall behind me…

The photo is from the Glass Museum at Limmared, Sweden. More photos from my visit there today will be coming up soon. This one is for Weekend Reflections.

  1. Strained up a bit it would look great. It is a really good snap.

    2. I think Adrian means played around with Monica. Though don't ask me how. I don't do playing around with things.

    3. I meant straigtened sorry straightened up....it's my anor...dislecksia...dyslexia showing. Why do they have a word that is impossible to spell to describe folk that can't spill.
      It's a cracking shot and thank you Graham for interceding on my behalf. I need a re-seeder.

    4. Graham, it has already been played around with.
      I could probably play some more, though.

      Adrian, I don't think it's possible to get everything straight in this photo. For one thing one of the candles was leaning. I'd have had to break the glass cabinet to straighten that out...

      I might try a further tweak of the photo in a later post though.

    5. Monica, good enough is near enough but here you have the reflections and the candles tilting the same way so they are easy to straighten. It's a great shot and worth making better.

    1. I was thinking of you when snapping away in there, Sandra. :) A really difficult place to take photos in though, because of all the reflections.

  10. I like the effect here. It makes the scene almost three dimensional! Nicely captured.

  11. It almost looks like magic. You'd expect something like that to be in a scene of a Harry Potter movie.

    1. No mirrors involved, Jeannette. The windows are reflected in a glass case.
