#StayAtHome Day 2 : Refractions and Reflections

Day 2 of the governments #StayAtHome policy

I spent most of the day in the garden, trimming my bushes. We have a Rosemary Bush at the top of the garden that has gone really woody and got far too big.It needed some serious chopping back. I then tackled some Hebes that are in a border between our grass and the rockery. I gave them a serious trim, to allow planting of summer bedding plants. The trim was quite artistic as I retained the shape of the plant. It was probably a bit like cutting one's hair, which if we continue the lockdown beyond the three planned weeks and hairdresseres remain closed , then I will be cutting my own !!!

Anyway todays picture, a selection of wine glasses on our kitchen worktop demonstrating reflection , refraction and maybe, total internal reflection. This is a colour photo. The specks on the worktop are sparkles as it shimmers when you switch the lights on :)

Sony A6000, Samyang 12mm f2 manual focus lens (hence the converging verticals on the glasses)

Great composition. We did a fair bit of garden tidying yesterday too. Lovely day for it, wasn’t it?

My head is spinning now, looking at these! Trying to make sense of all the lines and angles and feeling like I am standing in an optical illusion. I love it!
Reminds me of the Hitchiker's Guide to the Galaxy.
Arthur: What's it like going through hyperspace
Ford: A bit like being drunk
Arthur: What's so bad about being drunk?
Ford: Ask a glass of water!

Can you cut my hair also? At the end if we’l Be alive we’ll all have long hair and fat buttocks!

Superb shot. B&w brings out all the details wonderfully. No problem for me with the hairdresser - I just tell Christine to trim it for me. She has never learned hairdressing but I'm not fussy about it and she has been cutting my hair ever since we were married - and I find that very convenient because I used to hate going to the hairdresser.

Thought you had taken to the demon drink at first! We might yet succumb! Anyone who lives with a hairdresser is well off indeed! I will be wielding the scissors in another month....was due a haircut when we came home anyway but no chance now! Wish we had had one in NZ last week now!
