Francine In Retirement
Seeing Life Through Photography


Yesterday I drove my elderly neighbor and friend to her doctor’s appointment, something I have been doing since her husband passed away three years ago.  She was in the examining room for a very long time and I became a little restless.  I had my camera with me, as always, so I began looking around for something of interest to photograph.  Nothing looked interesting until I took a second look at the entrance into the waiting room right off from the street.  The office entrance is located in a shopping plaza and is surrounded by square glass blocks from top to bottom.  Looking at the glass block I just saw distorted light coming through with no particular pattern.  I took my photo and looked at it and, wow, behold I find a portrait of glass art right before me.  Click, click, click went my camera.  I was having fun with each photo I took.  Every one was different from the next.  I could only imagine what the photos would look like if the sun had been shinning. It was a cold, gray day with snow flakes in the air.

I hope you enjoy these photos as much as I do.  I am thinking about making a triptych and framing it to give to the doctor for her office, as she is also my doctor.  Now the only problem I have is chosing which three to use.  I took about 78 photos.

  3. Each block is different. Great shots!!

  4. I had a similar experience ( in my office staircases. But your back ground was surely better, The fascinating thing is that every day, the same brick changes its ghost image from a flower to a dancer, from a bird to a forest. I suppose that some shrinks could buy the prints to use in associative therapy..
