Hello everyone. Today’s photo blogging assignment was warmth. Yeah, right!!! We have been breaking record low temperatures here in Colorado from over 100 years ago. But… I could have done the obvious, shown you some quilts. However, the assignment parameters were to use the sun as a light source.
I love the way the sun comes in through the shutters in our library. I decided to warm up with some scotch whiskey. Well, I will later, after work… A nearby Scotland travel book and a large volume of “Thoughts” was a great pedestal, to get my glass positioned in the sunlight just how I envisioned. You can’t really move the sun, you know. I just love the way the glass of scotch is the shining focal point of this image. Everything else is a supporting player.
The lamp and the small orchid plant filled the corners of the shot, and I think it came out pretty nice. Let me know what you think. Or what you drink, if you’re so inclined. I’m actually more of a Gin connoisseur myself. The old bottle of scotch was a gift from a recently departed friend. I don’t think she was a scotch drinker either, because the bottle is super old.
Well, enough for now. I hope you can enjoy some warmth for yourself.
