Thematic Photographic Transparent


It took me a while to determine what I should photograph to hit this category but being the smart and creative person I am of course I came up with this idea. Oh shoot, can feel my nose growing. It was Jeff's idea. So the credit does go to him. This is a piece of leaded glass I picked up a few years ago at the big summer craft show in Picton. It hangs in my bay window that looks out into my backyard and woods. Even though it contains some "translucent" and "opaque" glass it also has sections of transparent glass and you can see the trees in the woods through them.

Whoever came up with the concept, the execution is wonderful. Love it in monochrome too!

I like how it shapes the trees behind. Transparent indeed, and oh so rich.

I could look at something like this every day and see something new. You've captured it so exquisitely!

I'll admit the latest theme isn't quite as bright. It's "drab", and I suspect it'll be a bit more of a challenge to make it sing. But I know you'll find a way!
