theme thursday - glass

Streetlamp with icicles, London

Seeing through a glass darkly?
I love taking photographs through glass, or of reflections in glass. Sometimes the glass fuzzes up the image or distorts it. Other times the image in the glass seems clearer and the colours brighter and more vivid.

Reflections are always great for photography -- glass provides lots of layering in an image, which makes it more interesting. I love that first photo from Stresa!

Good post, Betty! I know how much fun it is to play with reflections and to work with distorted surfaces like antique glass. I really like the shots you got in Gent and Stresa. Great work!
