Random Fridays: Prism

This faceted globe of glass looks unassuming, but put in the path of sunlight and it takes on a whole new life. It throws rainbow shapes around the room (as in the feature image), and if I spin the globe I have my own private disco as the colours go whirling around.

As you can imagine, it was difficult to focus on these rays of coloured light. I quite like the “smeared” results, though!



Let there be light(s)

It would be an exaggeration to describe lamps and lights along streets, houses and parks as my “muse“, but I do seem to take a lot of photos of them! I’m drawn to their shapes (which can be sinuous or angular), their symmetry in rows or clusters, and of course the way the light plays on them.
