Random Photo Day









Refracted light, cast shadows, contrasting patterns and color = a random photo day!

  1. Hope you get to do some sitting in the swing above the azalias, Steph...the spent flower droppings on the deck from the trees remind me of the raking I will will soon have to do when all the trees here start to shed theirs.

  2. Random photos are always best. What is that green thing? How I love that colour!

  3. Good question Soul. It's a Vaseline glass vase that belonged to my grandmother. I looked up the definition so I could explain what it is and I learned something I didn't know.

    Vaseline glass is a yellow green glass that is made by adding 2% Uranium Dioxide to the glass mixture when making the piece. So glass looks like Vaseline, but only true Vaseline glass will glow bright green under a ultraviolet light (blacklight).

    So now I need to get a blacklight and test whether or not my vase is actually Vaseline or one of the look alikes. All I know is that my grandmother had it all of my life.

  4. Shadow, light and perspective is what it's all about. Wonderful photos and very cool about the vase.

  6. These are all great. Very artfully done. The aloe looks like a monster with big teeth.

  8. I love your new banner, so springy! Your grandson has a beautiful head of hair! I hope your town is recovering from the tornado it had earlier this year. You have inspired me to get out there and take some random pictures! I have been feeling very creative the past few days! I hope it lasts. I didn't realize how much I have missed blogging! I also got a new computer, learning how to download pictures and all sorts of things! My old computer was just so slow! That was part of the reason for my lack of posts! I mean it was slllloooowww!
    Have a wonderful rest of the day!

I'm glad you stopped by and I look forward to your comments. As Dr. Fraser Crane would say, "Hello, I'm listening."
