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.
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.

Perhaps you’d like to see what the carousel building looks like without distortion:
Hope your day is going well….
Your carousel pictures are some of my favorites. Especially the distorted views. Lovely colors and fun to look at.
I love the top photo juxtaposed with the fourth. Such a cool perspective.
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!
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.
Glass is such a wonderful subject and you have captured so many different textures! Love this series.
Interesting that you thought to include the vase with the distorted mirrors, because it kind of matches.
Yeah, all of the glass is distorts things in some way. It didn’t really hit me until I saw the photos on the same Flickr page.
