Glass Ball Photography

Travelers are fantasists, conjurers, seers – and what they finally discover is that every round object everywhere is a crystal ball: stone, teapot, the marvelous globe of the human eye

This Xmas I was bought an intriguing gift by my lovely wife Caroline. This is a Crystal Ball, that you do not see the future, but rather record the present, in an inverted state. It is a beautiful way of focusing on still life through a free moving fish eye.

There is actually groups dedicated to this form of art. I may join one when I have mastered the art. I took these three image with my X100 S on a monopod whilst holding the glass ball.

I cannot wait to go out and offer this crystal up to the streets, watch this space.
