Sometime last week there was a photo challenge for incorporating glass into your images.  I obviously missed the boat (this is why I will never be successful at Twitter) but went scrolling through some older images looking for things taken through or with glass.  And approximately two years ago today, we went to Scotland, and we spent time at the Kelvingrove gallery.  And I saw some of my favorite pieces of glass art work ever there.  Here are my amateurish photographs of two of my favorite bits.

These glasses reminded me of the ones my mother collected, and I took the picture for her. They are gorgeous, and amazing examples of hand-etched glass work.  Also, they were taken of glass, through glass, so I felt it met the challenge.

Angular

My life has been well over the edge of busy lately, and chances to get out with my camera are limited.  Earlier this year we visited a Tin Mine in Cornwall.  It is an exercise in angularity.

This was my first capture of the day, and it was also my favourite.  Yes, the lines of the mine, the angles of the old wood.

Indoors, and the belts that carry the rocks everywere, go up and down at all angles.

The contrasts between things have always fascinated us.   Particularly for myself, when I think of my life and the choices I’ve made, how they’ve affected me, and how I’ve learned from them.  I saw the opportunity for taking this picture as a way to highlight this.
