lessons learned...

I've been looking for awhile now, for one of these globes. I finally found one today and already I've learned a very important lesson. DON'T leave it in the sun too long! While playing with this capture, I noticed that in the bottom left portion of the globe, it was catching the grass on fire!!

OK...so Globe + Sun = Fire!
Haha! Glad you noticed! Really cool shot

I guess you need to be careful with them. Cool Shot. I want to try and find one of these.

Cool shot! I remember how we tried to start a campfire with magnifying glass but no success... I loved all these survival skills once, that my dad taught me :)

It looks like the sky and sun are leaking out - I love that little touch!

Thank you for your comments everyone! I hadn't planned on posting any of my globe project captures just yet, but when I saw that it had caught the grass on fire, I felt like I had to share this glimpse into my "normal" life... ;-)

LOL! That's some hot stuff there! Love the picture and it is a good lesson.

Many types of glass can refract light in such a way as to cause fires. With all the bottles etc. that get left by the side of the road (and by inconsiderate people using national forest land) I'm surprised there aren't more brush fires.

Oh my goodness! I guess that makes sense, but I wouldn't have given it a thought until I smelled smoke. Clear shot, though - way to have your wits about you!
