Photo Hunt: Skinny


This was a hard one, but I kept coming back to this beautiful Venetian glass vase my parents gave me the last time they went to Italy. It sits on my mantle with a collection of cobalt blue glassware, and although it's hard to tell from the picture, it is indeed quite skinny.

I decided to try some of the custom settings on my digital camera, and really liked the way this one came out with the background sort of a butter yellow. I present: skinny!

I love the color of this glass vase. Imagine if there are flowers in it, it'd be a perfect table centerpiece.

Nice choice. I can almost see your reflection in the glass, but not quite. Thanks for visiting and sharing.
