Glass

Alright, I'm back in the game after a noticeable absence.

This entry is obviously centered around glass. The visual effect of the first photo kinda got me thinking. The effect is nothing new or profound, of course. Just got me thinking about the forms, functions, and usage of glass in our world.

And, well, it's fun to show bits of my travels in this thematic way.

The dining table at our villa/hotel in Bali, Indonesia.

Another shot… though I like the first one better.

Petrol (in Absolut Vodka bottles!) being sold on the side of the street to the gazillions of motorcyclists in Bali.

Zooming around in an auto-rickshaw in Bangkok, Thailand. I like the multiple uses of glass here – window and mirrors, transparent and reflective.

The window washers at the observation level (the highest floor) of Taipei 101 – currently the world's tallest building. Crazy!

To get a sense of the height…

OK, I can't take credit for this photo. My boyfriend took this photo from inside the museum atop Mount Holyoke (the actual mountain, not the college) in South Hadley, Massachusetts.

A fresh seafood buffet. VERY fresh! :) This was taken at the Sai Kung Seafood Market in Sai Kung, Hong Kong.

A compelling piece of modern Chinese art. The image is painted on several parallel layers of glass.

You can see the dimension and the depth in this shot. This piece was displayed at one of the art galleries in the 798 Art District in Beijing.
