Crystal clear . . .
. . . and distorted.
Beautiful how glass distorts light.
and such fun to play with don’t you think?
Great choices to define distorted.
I bet those crystal ware are costly!
I imagine so!
great idea for this week challenge 🙂
Thank you Hendra Taruna!
How did you DO that?
Terrific shots, colors, special effects, all of it!
The glass in the first one is part of an exhibition in Washington which I found captivating while the other two were simple shots through glassware. So pleased you enjoyed, thank you!
Warm greetings to you Frizz!
Beautiful Entry as always Patti ,I love the Glassware above Nice work for Distorted 🙂
Thanks Jake! Looking fwd to popping over to see your latest work of art!
These are WAY cool! I especially like the middle one. Are you looking inside a jar?
Thank you Andy! The second one is looking at the bottom of a glass. I was drinking some coca-cola when I noticed the bright afternoon light from the nearby window turning the last of the coke almost into a piece of amber. I had to resist the urge to suggest that things go better with you know what!
Clear as crystal in the beginning and distorted by the end… Sign of a good time. 🙂
You have summed it up beautifully, thank you!
Thank you Amar!
love these photos
Why thank you Ms Jo!
Wow! So beautiful, Patty!
Thank you Andrea – the light did all the work!
Very cool, Ms. K!
Glass does the most interesting things (the way it reflects and bends)… a perfect idea for this challenge! And very nicely executed, as well!
(I really like the contrasting warms and cools you’ve captured in that second image, too… so nice!)
Thank you SiG! Isn’t glass, the way it plays hide and seek with the light, so much fun to play with? As for painting it, I would love to hear your thoughts.
Nice pics. Did you notice the face in the top photo? 🙂
Please feel free to drop by and view my interpretation of Distorted:
I have to tell you that I didn’t notice the face until you mentioned it – sitting in the jug? Thanks Cris and looking fwd to dropping by yours soon!
My pleasure and thank you Ash!

These are quite lovely. 😉
Shooting through glass always guarantees some distortion. The more curved the glass the greater the distortion. The second image has beautiful colours….
It is all such a fascinating process. I wear glasses, the camera lens is glass and I often take photos through glass – windows etc, how many degrees of distortion, or correction, if any involved in this I wonder!
As for the colours in the second I have the light to thank for that – it hit at just the right time!
These are great. Awesome choice for the theme.
Thank you so much Beebles and lovely to meet you!
Wonderfully distorted views and a great job of capturing them. The second photo has a stunning color combination!
A little drop of Coke went along way in that second shot which, I promise, was not staged but a happy catch of the light. Thank you Theresa!

i like this photo post 🙂 distorted photos are awesome because we can see things like that with the naked eye but when capturing the image we loose some of the magic. but you have got the magic in each and every photo, so amazing!
keep up the good work
Your most generous and encouraging comment is so much appreciated, thank you!
You had a field day with this one Patti – a great selection of distortions through glass 🙂
Doing my best to make the distortions clear! Thank you Martin!
Clearly beautiful. Like shimmering precious gems, each glass pieces shine in the most spectacular way. Have a blessed day my friend….
Light and glass do indeed make a spectacular couple but catching them together at just the right time is so tricky. Thank you IT and a good day to you!
I love the faces through the clear glass in the final shot. The middle one is beautiful – as you say, just like amber. Amazing how it looks like a flower, too. The blue in the glass around it is so delicate.
Thank you BH and wonderful to see you back again, hope all well with you!
That sunburst on blue is fantastic. Refraction is one my favourite things.
Thank you Geoff, the light beamed in at just the right time, or rather I saw the light!
