2013 CM Blog Circle: April ~ Shooting Through Glass

I’m participating in a blog circle with other Clickin Moms for 2013. April’s challenge is called “shooting through glass” and I wanted to do something other than looking out my kitchen window. The first image was inspired by a P52 photo I shared earlier in April. I was standing outside admiring the deep blue sky and green trees and noticed how much more vivid they appeared when looking through my sunglasses. I thought, “I wonder if I could shoot through my glasses to show the effect?” Voila! I had to manually focus to nail this. The second image was tricky to capture. I had to set up my camera at the base of my mom’s side table which has a glass top. The cat likes to sit there and I thought it would be interesting to see the bottom of him. He, however, did not want to be photographed! No matter how many times I put him back on the table, he made a rapid getaway. So you get a foot, lol.
