Glass

My fascination for glass never ends...this week's prompt for IMT is, "glass". A material that is indeed a paradox. I have a lot to say about glass as you can see in a previous post called, "Living Glass". There is a glass blowing studio north of us called Tesuque Glass just outside of Santa Fe next to the Shidoni Foundry. If you are ever in the area, make it a point to stop by. They will even recruit you to help them blow glass, as the process of blowing glass is usually dependent on a community. Bring a picnic lunch with you as the property is beautiful with a little stream that runs through it with picnic benches alongside of it. A great day trip if you live in the northern New Mexico zone! And then, there is the Glass Graveyard here in Albuquerque...more on that in an up coming future post!

That is a pretty green. Love the way the light shines through it.

wow thats a great photograph. I love the effect when you look at a cross section of glass that way, I've often noticed it. You're photograph captures it perfectly.
