It was an interesting process how this shot came about. I didn't really want to do another picture with glasses filled with colored water or vases or other arrangements with common glass objects. I was stumped for an idea. On this particular morning I was watering my favorite Fuscia plant and wondered how I could incorporate it into a picture. I decided to place a flower on a pane of glass and see how it would look. Holding the glass by one hand trying to get the perfect reflection from the light. The glass broke in half. I continued with the piece in hand but accidentally stepped on the other half on the ground. Wow! broken glass!! I placed the flower on the glass which lay on the grass and proceeded to take more pictures. None of which I liked. Then I decided to use a broken mirror and capture the reflection of the beautiful blue sky. I expanded from one flower to 3 and played with water drops. This was the shot I liked the best. Much different than what I had originally envisioned.

Second favorite so far love the water droplets and colors. Not a fan of flowers but the lines really pull me in. The white hue variation on the blue is interesting to me
