You really captured that blue green. Good background choice. Shimmeringly lovely.

Robin said...

Not quite Janet, but since I didn't do a Tuesday post I jumped the gun a bit :).

Wow. Beautiful colors and composition. A winner!

Jennifer said...

I love the contrast of this one - the smooth glass against the textured wall. Very yin/yang.

Love the shot!! (didn't quite figure out what was so fantastic, 'till Jennifer pointed out the contract between the stucco and the smooth glass (also the bright color against the stark white).

Love the photo!

(love the vase!!)

Beautiful. I love the simplicity of modern design!

It does start to disappear into the background, and one only sees the colors and the bits of refraction.

Terri said...

That's gorgeous. It really pops out of that background. Well done!

Beautiful, the treatment on the wall, compliments it well :)

The color and texture of the wall are perfect foils for this lovely vase. Good job.

Mojo said...

That's one of those mesmerizing shots that could keep me staring for a really long time if I'm not careful. I hope you use its powers for good!

I love this stuff. Reminds me of my hippie days. I've still got a working lava lamp.
