How I view….Dinnertime | Cold Spring, MN Photographer

CM Photo Challenge…Shoot thru glass | Cold Spring MN Photographer

This months theme for our CM Challenge Blog Circle, was to shoot thru glass.  This is one of those times that I wish I had a macro lens.  I have seen some pretty cool photography experiments shooting images in say, Karo syrup or seltzer water, up close through glass showing the microscopic bubbles.  Ahhh…but to…
