A Photo a Week: Under Glass

I’m pretty sure Nancy really wanted a picture of something shot through glass, and I suppose I could have gone down the hall and shot a picture of my dolls in their glass cabinet. Of, for that matter, the glass cabinet in this room. Some of them are more accurately … through glass. Sunglasses. And a little amber bottle.

    1. Thanks. That’s the best view of the harbor I ever saw. I didn’t want to shoot through the window, but there was no choice. No balcony. Glad I did it.

      The amber bottle came with a tiny daffodil in it from my son. I have kept the bottle. In case I have another tiny daffodil πŸ˜‰


    1. Thanks! It was interesting trying to figure out which pictures suited the challenge … and which didn’t. I wasn’t sure if “through” glass was the same as “under” glass, but I wanted something other than a store window. It was fun πŸ˜€


    1. The plates are 18th century antique Rose Famille porcelain from China … but Limoges copied the designs. Actually, a LOT of companies copied these designs.

      The table has a glass top, a shelf underneath where I keep some of my old Chinese plates and some not-nearly-so-old (about 50 years) Wedgewood. Also some relatively new Italian glass. It’s nice to get some use out of the table. Beneath that, it also has drawers where I keep things like the tick puller for the dogs and collars and spare remote controls. Coffee tables are usually just a waste of space. This one at least displays stuff and hold other useful small items.

        1. I’ve lived in old houses like that where the only closet might have held a broom and a dustpan, but that was it. I redesigned a hallway and turned it into a closet … also used what I think was a nursery and made that a closet. I grew up in a really old house and my mother turned any area that wasn’t a full size room into a closet. She spent her life building closets.

          1. I did the same thing with the nursery too! It was connected to the main bedroom and became a walk in closet. My mother moved in and we gave her those two rooms. I just built a makeshift area in another room. We still don’t have ceiling lights in some of the rooms.


              1. They were small. I was told the entire room was just beds from side to side. They had 13 children in this house, all the younger ones and the nanny slept in the nursery.


  1. I leave everything up to individual interpretation. Love your selection. It looks like you are hiding from the sunglass reflection in the first one. πŸ™‚ Thanks for joining the challenge!
