Photography Now and Then #16
The selection of two different glass related photographs for today’s Now & Then post was by purely serendipitous chance.
Today’s photo1: Glass ball in decorative chain catches the sun on a frigid Arkansas morning (Pentax K-3 II)
It was 10.0°F on our porch this morning when this photo was taken. It felt colder, with the wind chill factored in. It barely got into the 20s and tonight is supposed to be even colder.
The Little Rock media went overboard yesterday and today with their winter weather coverage. Yeah, it’s cold and, yeah, some parts of the state did get snow, though we didn’t, but it wasn’t more than 3 or 4 inches anywhere in the state.
Photo Favorite2: Mountain Blown Glass, Estes Park, Colorado, Sept. 15, 2011 (Pentax K-r)
We’ve taken the opportunity in at least 4 different locations around the United States to watch glass blowers work their craft. It is always fascinating to watch. Mountain Blown Glass is located at 101-A West Elkhorn Ave. in Estes Park, Colorado.
- Today’s Photo is a photo that is almost always taken the day of the blog post. In some instances, posts may be backdated if internet access is not available on the day of the photo or other reasons prevent posting Now and Then.
- Photo Favorite is a randomly selected older photograph from a batch of photos specifically “curated” for Now and Then.
