Back in February, I stayed at my Sister's place and had access to a bunch of my Mother's old knick-knacks including a bunch of colored glass vases, cups, and the like. This image was made by removing the lens from my camera, holding a red-glass jar over the body opening, aiming towards the sun, and shooting. The second and third images are modified with Adjust, B&W Effects, and layered with a couple of different blending modes. Nothing too special, but I thought the idea might be of interest to those who like to experiment.
The image reminded me of a faraway nebula set aglow as its core works to form a new star.
