There seems to be a being in the room, wings opened for a slow and soft landing. Such a stunning capture!

Beautiful abstract, nice color.

What a marvelous capture, Tom! Reminds me of an abstract painting and I love the rich, red color! Hope you're enjoying a great weekend!

A red angle? Whatever one sees it is an interesting capture.

That's beautiful :)

Great shot. Love the shades of red, it feels like a comfortable blanket to hide under.

Very cool! The bottle served as a low-tech lens.

Stunning photo Tom, the light and the contrast are superb. I have been painting lately these glowing red tones, they are so comforting and invigorating.

Hey Harriet said...

Ha! That's really cool! I would never have guessed in a gazillion years what it was!

Intriguing piece of shadow and light art! There seems to be so many ghostly shapes wandering there! Fascinating, elusive reality!

Thanks, y'all!

Yesterday I was looking for the cherry syrup and couldn't find it.

Me: Where did the cherry syrup wind up?
Jody: In the cupboard, where we've always kept the Toranis.
Me: What? But if it's in there, it won't catch the late afternoon light!
