Upside down secrets

I have a wee glass ball which was bought in Sweden so the glass is good. This is an attempt to use it as Crystal Ball! You can see various in the background there of what is around. The main focus is wisteria leaves turning yellow.
Very magical - full of colour, symmetry and unusual angles. With all that glass am amazed that you didn't selfie in the process.

Love the leaves that show up in there ... such beautiful colors! It's really a magic ball, Maggiemae. A wee little forest in an upside down world.

Great shot- love the glass, colours and the upside down car. I have several old bud vases, maybe I can have a go with the base of one of them. Great idea.

@carolinedreams Thanks for the fav, Caroline. Another idea I had was to fill a round flower vase with water and shoot through it! Some else has probably long thought of this!

Stunning Maggie. A FAV for me. (I personally do not like humans making pets from wild animals but it seems to be a bit of a mony making racket with the humans)

@sebella Unfortunately often ends with them not being able to give these animals what they really need. Thanks for the fav!

It's great Maggiemae - I wonder how many others like me turned the laptop upside down? :)

@bluefirebucket If you have an iPad, it won't let you turn it upside down!
