2019-02-28 i adopted 100 glasses

Well I know, I did something similar before. But today the idea jumped back in my head, because at work I adopted 100! equal, hardly used white wine glasses and gave them shelter and home. Someone wanted to destroy them (not give away, shatter them in the bottlebank!), because it is too annoying to wash them after use and better use disposable stuff. ???
Of course they are not the best crystal quality, but will do more then fine, for every reason we have to raise a glass.

The glasses in the picture, are not said glasses. It's a selection of our private glassware, we got for our wedding,... so so many years ago.
Fascinating shot. My, how much light bending can be produced by a simple wine glass of water. ( I'm assuming it's water, if not I'd love to see the shots you take after emptying all of them!)

Fantastic shot.. love it.. just trying to work out how you did the upside down ones?..
February 28th, 2019  
Incredible image and lovely story.

@julzmaioro Thanks Julia. I did a behind-the-scene post, the last time I did a refraction, with upside down glasses. You can find it here: https://365project.org/mona65/2015-plan-b-alb/2017-09-28

so clever - well done
February 28th, 2019  
Great image, very cleverly executed.
February 28th, 2019  
Super image, they have repaid you well!
February 28th, 2019  
oooooh just marvellous. love how the different glass shapes make the different patterns. and there are little reflections as a bonus also
February 28th, 2019  
Super image FAv!
February 28th, 2019  
So cool

Well done in so any ways. Rescuing 100 wine glasses is super hero stuff. Brilliant refraction and some helpful how-to instructions too. Fav

Fantastic image - and that's so wasteful and against the environment - if I had 100 wine glasses, I'd be giving them away as presents, filled with homemade sweets or other goodies.

Cool shot. I like how the glass and water distorts the lines.
February 28th, 2019  
Wow! And this isn’t even near 100

What an outstanding, truly unique photo. It's really fascinating. Fav for sure.

Thank you for saving the wine glasses:) Now you can have a gala! I love this shot and will one day try it myself. Beautiful!
March 1st, 2019  
I love this.

Absolutely fantastic shot, Mona. A good use of the rules of third. Thank you for the pointer explanation in your response to Julia, I was also wondering how you had done for the two upside down glasses. I will make use of that. The gift wrapping paper as wallpaper is a simple but effective idea as well.

Beautiful glasses -- a good for you to save those 100 about-to-be-tossed. For disposable??? How odd!
March 1st, 2019  
Really like all the lines, curves and reflection. Makes a great abstract!
March 1st, 2019  
Great refractions and a wonderful capture, fav
