Glass is interesting to photograph from the skyscraper to cottage windows, diamonds, rubies and emeralds, to my groovy new bamboo sunglasses, and crystal glasses. All out of crystal I used coloured drinking glasses instead, filled them with water and ice, and used my emergency torch to light them up.
Like a Thimblerig I moved the glasses around for a good shot, finally resorting to placing them in a row.

This is my favourite shot, a moody close-up of the purple glass which now comes with an unexpected black background – who knew?
This final close-up shot produced another moody photo with black background – it reminds me of a commercial though probably not for iced water 😉
Taking photos of glass was fun and I’ve become adept at holding torches between my head and neck 🙂
