New blue

I wish I could say that this shot is part of some larger exploration - of color or texture or whatever - that I have been diligently working on. It was, in truth, a happy accident.

I was on the back porch with my camera, nothing in particular in mind. I bumped against a broken glass ornament that was hanging near a bird feeder - please don’t ask me why it was there, I haven’t a clue. I flinched in reaction to the minor collision and noticed the ornament for the first time. Apparently it’s been hanging on the back porch for quite some time and it hadn’t registered. A lesson there…

So I took a few shots. I just happened to have the macro lens on the camera (that’s the one designed for close-up work), so I got lucky. Several times over, come to think of it!
