Scattered Light


When I look at this puddle photo in a certain way I see a head full of reflections.
When I look at myself in a certain way I see a head full of reflections.

More rainbows appeared this week too.

More prismatic scattering

My rose vase acted as a prism in a beam of light yesterday. And the day before light on a vase at the hairdressers was creating mini-rainbows in the bubbles in the water and rainbow fringes on the edges of the window seen through the vase.

Some good things from the last week:

Some amazing dreams, a fabulous lunch out yesterday, (English) muffins that Jim made (recipe and photo on flickr), a wonderful Burns night supper that turned into a celebration of Australia Day too and, despite glorying in all this food, I've also kept my new year's resolution to avoid sugary things, especially cakes (brought on by just too much of a good thing whilst staying at Jim's mother's for a week over Christmas :-).

I really like the first photograph and can spot a kangaroo on that bottle's label!

Anonymous - Cheers to you too! I was very happy to be celebrating them both together!

Glad you had such a good week, Caroline - sounds (and looks) like it was full of fun finds and good food. I see a 'blue sky head' on the right, beneath the tree reflection - the upside down tree reminds me of the anatomy drawings of arteries, so the that it looks like a strange sort of anatomical illustration - I like it!

Lovely photos, Caro.
I can see that thinking head in the puddle.

Tinker - I've been looking on the bright side! ;-)

Cream - thank you - sometimes I see it and sometimes I don't!

Hi Caroline, I used your balloon photo again in a new photo about Bristol and places I have never been. Thanks again
