Oh Virginia, those are simply perfect and I love the contrast between the crystals and the almost opaque window behind them.

You will have to take me to this charming shop when I come to Birmingham again!

A perfect choice to do this in b&w. It engages the imagination and memory in such a compelling way.

Je prendrais bien ces pampilles de cristal pour fabriquer un joli lustre! Je le pendrais au-dessus de ma table dans la salle à manger!

A very pleasing shot here. Love visiting shops with old and new junk.

Claudine,
Ou la chambre à coucher? :)

Thank you everyone. I shot these many different ways and had another angle I preferred but there was sky behind the crystals which didn't work. Too blown out.

Very, very beautiful. Look like raindrops!

Beautiful crystal ornaments.
Like those used in chandeliers.
Have a great weekend Virginia.

I need my eyes examined. When I saw the thumbnail I thought they were dressed chickens hanging in a shop window.

Virginia said...

I can't get to Birmingham to take your classes. But looking at your photos is always a learning experience. Case in point!
