Travel Theme: Glass

This week it seemed like two of the photography-themed challenges I participate in overlapped.  The first was “illumination” at WordPress, and the second is this week’s theme of “glass” at Where’s My backpack?

The photos I posted for the illumination theme, I could have posted for this glass theme as well because they were glass and I had travelled to see them.  If you would like to take a quick look at that post, it is here.  Instead I picked this one for the glass theme:

ISO 500 50mm 0ev f/7.1 1/13

ISO 500 50mm 0ev f/7.1 1/13

I chose this one because it is the memory of traveling preserved in glass.  The actual shells are on display at a friend’s house.  I was over when she had this project spread out on her table.  Photography is one way to remember your travels, but this is another.

As for the picture, I converted it to sepia on a whim while I was editing it, and this was the version that I liked best.
