I must admit I truly like this picture. I could stare at it for long minutes. Crime scene: a hotel bathroom in Italy. It was a glass washbasin and a bit of running water, the flash (combined with the ceiling light) did the rest. The picture without both lightening effects wasn't any good.

I am posting very early ( but I am not the only one) because I am leaving this afternoon to go to Valencia. Why? you might like to read here and here about the America's Cup event currently taking place there. No, I am not taking part in the competition, no team would like to have me as I often get sea sick . We will be sailing to watch the saturday race from an historical ship like the pictured here, I am taking extra batteries for my digital cam along! I will be therefore late visiting your "shiny" pictures, bear with me! Happy weekend!!

    We're gonna miss the opportunity here in Sweden with the Tall Ship race in the end of July, because we're on the summer island Fårö then... *mutterings*

  6. Until I read your description, I had no idea what I was looking at. I think it would also go well under unique even if commonplace there.

    Come visit my blog!
