Day 263—It’s All In How You Look At It

Today’s challenge theme is “glass” and I knew right away that I’d photograph a water glass, either half full or half empty, depending on how you look at it. I see the glass as half full because I am by nature positive and I always try to find the best part of any situation. But it’s okay if you view it as half empty. There’s the same amount of water in it no matter how you see it. This afternoon, I had the luxury of a little time to think about my photo and to try for something other than a “grab” shot or a “snapshot” as most of my photos have been this past month. I remembered that I tried this type of photograph in February when I photographed some empty bottles with Hard Water Spots. I reread the post because I had forgotten how I achieved that look. The lighting is very different in late winter than it is in late summer so the effect is not quite the same but I like the shot. And this time, I placed the glass on a piece of glass to get a reflection.
