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 🙂

    nice experimentation with glass. Different colors and background complement each other. I liked the red one :).

      Thank you Jui, it took me ages to move those glasses into this position and the ice was beginning to melt haha 🙂

      Thanks for your comments Lindy, I was lucky with the black background – totally unexpected and must’ve happened because I was so close to the top of the glass 🙂

      Hi and thank you for your comments 🙂 I wish I’d bought more of these glasses when I had the chance, they look beautiful in the light. Yes the red is interesting, not sure if it reminds me of an advert for an alcoholic drink or something else 🙂

      Hi Jacqueline, I loathe wasting water so drank all of them – was very full in the end haha 🙂
