Day 52 - Cathedral in Glass

Tonight I had no idea what to take a picture of (aka, the usual state of affairs). As I was wandering around the house, my eye was caught by a crystal I bought in Barcelona laser-etched with an image of La Sagrada Familia. I thought it would be fun to take a picture of the light shining through it, which involved finding the flashlight, figuring out how to prop it up at just the right angle (thanks towel!), setting up the tripod, and sequestering the overly fascinated cats. This didn't turn out as well as I'd hoped (and I realize in retrospect that I should have had some sort of covering to mask the mottled floor), but I didn't feel like setting everything up again. I have a laser-etched rose from San Francisco that I might try this with at a later date.

  1. So cool! I really like this one! Good job! I've had so many pictures that I realize after the fact that the background or whatever is odd or not quite right. C'est la vie. You lit the crystal well and caught the light reflecting all around it, which isn't easy.
