Cracking up

Celeste Mookherjee

Long Beach, United States

Artist's Description

While wandering through a local garden store’s outdoor displays, I came upon some glass gazing globes. Most were typical orbs of smooth glass, but one was irregularly cracked and appeared to be made in the style of stained glass with leading to hold the pieces together. Moving in close with a macro lens gave me a glassy abstract of irregular shapes with sunlight creating a bright spot. (Olympus E-510 & Zuiko 35mm macro, f/7.1, 1/400 sec, ISO 100, early afternoon sun, handheld)
