Glass Fringe

Hello everyone.  I’ve had a busy beginning to this Thanksgiving week.  I am a few days behind on the Photo 101 challenges.  I’m going to catch up now.

For Tuesday’s assignment, we were to photograph glass.  Our house is filled with glass.  To be specific, we both collect glassware, and our home has 47 windows.

I just finished sewing 80 more strip sets for my scrappy quilts, and turned off the main studio lights, thinking I’d head to bed.

However, I noticed the awesome fringe on this lamp, just outside my studio in the hallway.  It’s late in the evening, so not much light in the upstairs hallway, except for one of the bulbs in this lamp.  I love the effect that a lone light can play on the mood in the area.

I had to play with my camera.  My favorite things about this photo…

1-the mood the light gives.

2-playing with the juxtaposition of in-focus strands against the out-of-focus ones in the background.

3-the way the layers just lure you into the center of the lamp.

I hope you enjoy this photo too.  Have a great night on this Thanksgiving Eve!

Create something special!

Kewpies

Hello everyone.  Today, for my Photo101 posting, I’d like to share this “Swarm” of Kewpie Dolls.

My Sister-In-Laws doll collection is very large.  You can’t help but wonder what they might be thinking, Right?

Enjoy this small sampling of some of her favorites.

Her first doll was made by the Cameo company, and she received Kewpie (We call her “Number 1”) for her birthday as a small girl.  “Number 1” is on the right with the necklace.  If you want to read more about Cameo Dolls click here.

Have a creative day!
