Glass Menagerie


I call the animals that live in my nook, my Glass Menageri. the candle and the lamp light changes the bear completely. the photo below  was made in Photo-shop from the above photo.  Just Playin I'm Sayin


Q: What do you get if you cross a grizzly bear and a harp?
A: A bear faced lyre!



Above 2 bears, and below Bambi the deer, were sitting on the glass table in bright sunlight and when I added a high density lamp, and played with the F-stop, it made them glitter and turn the background black.




The strange subject matter of my camera, as in the Salt shakers yesterday, are all from my Macro Manual practice sessions.  LOOK out, more strange practice shots are on the way.

I like your glass menagerie, those bears are really cute. That candle does add a lot of color and sparkle. The bear next to the candle looks like he is baring his teeth.

Play away, we love strange!

I can't find any salt shakers! It is Shutterfly, the morning glories, Jake and Baby, and November colored flowers. Those are the last four posts. Did you pre-schedule salt shakers for yesterday and they didn't post? Or did I really miss something? It's probably me! I always love seeing your nook things in the pretty light. Then I know summer really is over!

I love glass. I remember buying it as a child in Italy (Murano). I don't buy as much now because I'm happy with my collection.
