Photo 365 #110: Glass

Seymour has given me some lovely gifts in the time that we’ve known each other.  This is a detail photo of one of those gifts:

For our second anniversary, he bought me a beautiful glass bowl from a local shop, and its beauty never fails to impress me.  The glass contains ash from the 1980 eruption of Mt. St. Helens, which appeals to my love of history.  It’s just a beautiful bowl, and one of the prettiest pieces of glass I’ve seen outside of a church.

I spent probably a good half hour taking pictures of this bowl back in May as we were packing up to move.  I played with angles, lighting, zooming in and out…In short, I spent way too much time photographing this bowl when I should have been packing.  Let’s face it – no one likes packing, and taking pretty pictures is much more fun.  I love the texture and color of this photograph almost as much as I love the bowl itself, and the thought that Seymour puts into gift-giving (regardless of who the recipient is).

It’s a perfect reminder of the things I treasure in life.  Do you have something like that, a reminder of things you hold precious?  Tell me all about it in the comments!

    I agree: the history really adds to the bowl — I love the color. Yes, packing isn’t nearly as fun as taking pictures. I have a lovely cranberry glass vase that I bought on our honeymoon (in Virginia): maybe I will use that for my glass picture. You have inspired me, Kay.
