The Creativity Project: Behind Glass

DSC_0071

Have you ever noticed that glass barriers signify the presence of something special?
There is something sort of magical about it.
I have learned to notice in recent years that the two-sided nature of glass
often helps you see two sides of a story at the same time.
I loved the reflection of downtown on the front of this tea service.
A certain invitation to come in rest a moment from the hustle and bustle.
It surprised me when I got it out of my camera and onto the screen, I have to admit.

Behind this glass are some treasures from my own  family.

My friend Kirti went downtown Minneapolis with me not long ago to search for treasures.

We found this place with lots of delights behind glass.

We also saw some intriguing sights behind the glass of the skyway.

Then, my Photo 52 group went on a photo walk downtown St. Paul.
Twin Cities require equal time after all!

This window definitely caught our attention.

Photo 52, Week 26:  Photographer's Choice

Again with the special goodies behind glass--
and a slightly nervous guest.
Sorry Dude, I tried to stay as far back as I could and zoom.

Tracy! This post was AWESOME! I mean, seriously awesome. I was calling all my co workers to come over and see what you had captured. Everyone would like a macaroon now. Please send some right over! : )

Thank you so much for joining us. I don't think all the links are up yet, but when they are, this will be the FIRST post I post on the Creativity Projects facebook wall.

You just completely rocked the theme out. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you!

By the way, which cupcake did you get? They all looked delightful. I loved the picture of the patron in the bake shop that looked nervous. That was too funny! He might have been on a secret mission. You never know.

Oh my word! You captured some amazing shots! So much beauty and yumminess; now I want to go window shopping and shoot a few pics while I'm doing it! You totally nailed the theme!

Tracy, I do so love how you gulp in all the beauty around you - the big details, the small details, the people (Hi, Nervous Guest, I'm waving at You!). ANd, of course, you KNOW I love thru-the-window and window reflection shots. Your photo walk looks wonderful. And yummy :-).

Oh what fun it was to go on your looking thru the glass adventure with you. Those sweet shops were so tempting...how many of those lovelies did you go home with? Beautiful captures!!

Melissa B. said...

I'm trying to get back on the blogging train, and I'm happy to see that you haven't yet left the station. Why is it that I almost always get hungry when I visit your place? Keep up the good work...I'll be back!
