Self Reflection

My wife has a blue gazing ball nestled in a small garden. I decided to use it for some self-reflection.

ISO 100

This image has a really great cool under-watery vibe to it. Glad to see you having fun with that 100mm. Someday I'll have one too ... :)

Dear Wayne:

What is the thought and history behind the glazing balls in Victorian gardens? Whay made you wife go with blue?

Would a blue filter hve given you the color, if not the distortion?

Questions, questions tonight.

Belle, Thank you very much!

Jack, I have no idea of the history of gazing balls, but I just may go learn. The reason she has blue is because that's what I bought her. She has a red one, but my son and his buds were playing baseball and destroyed it.

The distortion comes from the surface of the ball. A blue filter on a silver ball would have given a similar effect.
