SOOC. No editing save for a minor crop.
Better on black.

This shot is dedicated to Jin Choi. His amazing abstract work inspired me to think more creatively and to go beyond my comfort zone in photography. www.flickr.com/photos/openuser/6075230381/in/set-72157626...

HSS! An edited image from the archives. Any idea what it is?

Veronique guessed it right away. It's just a bokeh shot of some Christmas lights reflecting on a table. I cropped it, flipped it upside down, and did a bit of editing and sliding.

Not curtains. But what? No hints but if you guess correctly I will post a comment confirming that you are correct. Ok, one hint: it's an ordinary object not something rare that would be impossible to guess.

Thanks to those of you who hazarded a guess. It's a picture of part of a clear glass fruit bowl that has some interesting contours. When I placed some red paper behind the bowl and used a narrow depth of field some of the contours of the bowl started to look like smooth pleats of fabric. It was then a lot of trial and error with focus, paper, and light to develop the concept of a split curtain, which I thought had an interesting Scriptural connotation.

Much better viewed on black...

A rainy night along Michigan Avenue in Chicago. No tourists, no cars, just softly falling rain and shimmering lights.

Better on black...
