I saw the sun streaming through the glass block window in my bathroom and loved the shadows that were forming on the narrow piece of wall at right angles to the window. I had to stand in the tub to get this shot. While I saw a bit of color outside the glass, and shadows of light and dark on the wall, the camera actually saw more in the way of colors in those shadows. I’ve added some tuning and saturation to exaggerate the effect. In the larger view, you can see the paint brush stokes on the wall, which is actually white.
In the top block you can see the blue of the sky, the middle reflects the green grass, and the tiny bit of red in the bottom block shows the red leaves of a bush just outside the window. I love how the three colors were reflected in the different glass blocks. Taken in my home in Dunnellon, Florida.
