Francine In Retirement
Seeing Life Through Photography




The above photos were taken while sitting in the reception room of a doctor’s office.  The entrance into the office was through a glass block entry way.  While waiting to be seen I noticed the way the light from outside formed different patterns on the windows.  The reflections were wonderful.  I took a number of shots and then played with the saturation button in Photoshop to bring out the colors with the above results.

You never know what is hidden in the reflection of the sun through a glass block window.  I had fun experimenting.  I hope you enjoy them.

  1. That’s a new angle. Very nice.

  2. Those are amazing, Francine. The end result is more like paintings than photographs. I wish some of my doctors had glass block walls! It would certainly pass the waiting time more pleasantly than old People magazines.

  3. Hope it all went well at the doctors’s. Looks like you had some time to wait! 😉

  4. Well your experiment really paid off – this is my favourite this week!

  5. These are great! Beautiful art.

  10. These are lovely, Francine. What a fun experiment!

  11. These are brilliant, like artworks rather than photos.
