Cool glass

Reflections II

I haven’t done a thing to this photo–these are old windows in a building across from the carousel at Glen Echo Park. Those bright colors are the building that houses the carousel (it’s closed in the winter). That’s me at the bottom, kind of distorted. I actually have slim hands, but they look huge in this photo. When I was a kid I loved funhouse mirrors.

Vase light

This vase was my mother’s. I love it, but have to be very careful when washing it, as the glass is so thin. It’s survived a lot of moves, though. Here’s what the entire vase looks like:

I love those wavy patterns. 

Another shot taken at Glen Echo Park:


Perhaps you’d like to see what the carousel building looks like without distortion:

Hope your day is going well….

    Lovely carousel photos. That vase is very special, I’ve never seen one with this type of wave.

    I’m really taken with the distortion effect in the top photograph. Thanks for sharing our talent with all of us!

    “Your” talent.

  6. Thanks for all the nice comments, everyone. I really needed them today. Feeling kind of off-kilter for some reason. I’m sure I’ll be fine tomorrow.

    Interesting that you thought to include the vase with the distorted mirrors, because it kind of matches.
