Project 365 - Glass and Stars
So, why, you may ask, have I selected this image? The answer is simple. It is not an image of snow. I shot this image in the lobby of our little hotel in Miami Beach.
Last night we flew away from snow and ice and into Oz. We walked the beach last night, thawing our frozen toes in the warm sand. This morning as I write this, Maddie and Doug are happily splashing in the hotel pool. It is freedom.
And here, in our snuggly piece of warmth, as we made our way back to our room after our giddy walk, I noticed this wall of glass. Warm and colorful. Full of shadow and highlight. It is clear that someone had given this wall a great deal of thought. The exact placement of the glass. The colors standing in complimentary order. The lighting set just right, setting off the swirls, transparency and opaque glow of each piece. And as if that were not enough, they set halogen spots above the whole wall. The cherry on the sundae. Starlight for those who take the time to really look.
