I had to look up the meaning of the terms and to see how it is different from Reflection before I had any idea about how to respond to this challenge. Then I remember my son’s lesson in refraction – a spoon in a glass of water would appear bent because of light refraction. Perhaps, I could try the glass thing, but first I needed a nice glass item. This candle holder seating idle inside my cabinet appeared good for the test. It is thick, it is crystal, it is well-made. It only needed a little polishing. 🙂
Two summers ago, I used this same glass to see how it would appear when the sun was shining on it. When it caught the sun at the right angle, I saw a ray of rainbow emanate from the glass. I tried to direct that light into a little flowering plant I then had. However, I was not able to have a good capture of the image.
With that previous experiment in mind, I brought the glass outdoors where I thought I could take advantage of the light. The sun, however, did not cooperate. It hid behind the clouds before I could even begin my work.
Since I was having a sort of a me-time anyway, the children were out with their grandparents and I had done the things I needed to do, I took pictures anyway. I thought I would capture autumn through the glass as though it was an extension of the camera lens.
When I had enough of that exercise, I put fallen leaves and flowers inside the container and took photos of them. It looked like they were swimming in water.
I found the results quite interesting that I took some more photos. Not all turned out well though. I had fun finding out how the grooves and cut of the glass affected the images. It was interesting to see the interplay between the images that were reflected on the glass and those that are inside the glass. Thank you for coming by. I hope you enjoyed my experiment as I did. Happy weekend. 🙂 Oh-oh. Pardon me for being unable to visit or respond to your comments. I will see you, dear friends, by and by. Promise. 🙂
