Bubble River by Corvidae65 Bubble River by Corvidae65
Another reverse lens macro. I always liked this shot but never worked it up as back then I thought it too abstract but as I learned more about photography I changed my mind. It's not what you think it is or what it might look like. In fact, I'll give a three month subbie to the first person who can guess what this is a macro shot of. I will give one hint: It *IS* and object and the colors involved have nothing to do with the subject :devilish:

Good luck and only the first person who guesses right gets the subbie :devilish:

Karla :iconsilenigmaarts: wins the subbie! :winner: Karla guessed right-- It is glass--in fact, it is the embossing on the side of a Mason jar with a sheet of that sparkly, multi-colored paper under it :iconoohshinyplz:
