Macro Mondays: Glass

This week’s theme for the Flickr Macro Mondays group is “Glass.” From this week’s instructions (via Moderator Hans Holt:)

As we did already during the last months, forced by Corona fear and lockdowns around the world, the theme for this week is again one for which you don’t need to leave your house. 

Glass it will be !

Glass is a wonderful material for the macro photographer. It is every time a surprising experiment to see how light (natural or artificial) reflects and refracts through the glass. You can start with plain or coloured glass, even broken glass will work well. The resulting picture can be full of wonderful shapes and colours, with you -the photographer- as the creative artist.

A few tips from me: 
a. Lighting is the keyword. Experiment. 
b. For a more artistic or even abstract result use glass with ridges or other markings on it.
c. For another result you can place something interesting behind (or in) the glass, as for instance, coloured liquid, decorative paper or fabric.

Mosaic Glass Vase

Moving into a new home means finding new treasures in which to decorate. This beautiful cyan blue and copper mosaic glass vase is one of those treasures that I found nearly six years ago when we moved to New Braunfels. I love these colors, they are so rich. The tiny pieces of glass that comprise the mosaic remind me of the earth and sea. I thought this small vase, which adorns my mantle piece in my living room, would be a perfect subject for this week’s Macro Mondays theme of Glass.
