Thematic Photographic 3 - Glass


Look in any window
Toronto, ON, May 2008 [Click to embiggen]

Glass is an amazing creation. Depending on how simple grains of sand are melted, tinted and shaped, it can be clear, translucent, reflective, pretty much whatever its creator wills it to be. As you can see from this oblique perspective of a building on Toronto's Yonge Street, I'm a big fan of patterns, too.

So this week's Thematic Photographic theme is...glass. Here's a quick reminder of how TP works:
  1. I post a new entry every Wednesday evening.
  2. Each entry has a unique theme.
  3. You post a similarly themed image over on your blog.
  4. You paste a link to your entry in a comment here. If you've already posted something that fits, simply post the link to the existing entry.
  5. Delirious photo sharing and happiness ensues.
I hope you have fun with this one. Glass can be such a diverse topic, and I'm jazzed just thinking of what you'll come up with. To see all TP entries to-date, click here.

Your turn: OK, over to you. I'll leave this week's theme in your capable hands. Can't wait to see your themed entries.

Hi Carmi,
I got an SMS via twitter saying this post was up, JUST after leaving work with all that inspiration! Oh well, this lead me to find inspiration closer to home!

Well if ever there existed a good reason to A) play with my camera and B) revisit my blog, this is it! If it stops raining, I'll have a go at it!

Love your photo. Mines up also, but it may be out of context a little. Apologies in advance...

Hi, Carmi! I was jazzed about the new week of Thematic Photographic and quickly took some shots this morning... but now I am inspired to tote my camera around with me today in search of possibly more images! Thank you! Enjoy the rest of your day!

glass has its challenges but I enjoyed searching photo files.
