The Bowl

Made by the Glass artist Beate Einen. The photo was shot at an exhibition she had with the photographer Monica Johansen at Galleri Vox in Bergen.



This Monochrome concept came from Aileni at Monochrome Weekend.

Flott bilde! Først trodde jeg det var en slags astronaut/alpinhjelm før jeg skjønte at det måtte være en glassbolle. Stilig med menneskene som vi ser refleksjonene av!

That is lovely. It could be included with Weekend Reflections as well. (A reminder that I should find a reflection to display.)

Mona Sweden said...

Otroligt snygga reflektioner. Gillar hur människorna samlats i mitten av skålen.

Regina said...

The lights remind me of snow. Great photo. I like the reflectivity.

lynnwiles said...

A very interesting shot indeed.

Dimple said...

Interesting image. A reflection and its reflection, and all the lights. Wonderful!

AL said...

Aha! I know it's some kind of glass art from the way I see it...it looks like a giant eyeball staring at us.

I often watch a glass artist at our Ren Fest. Fascinating work.

AVCr8teur said...

So many people in the bowl! :) Nice reflections, but I can't identify which one of the figures is the photographer.

Alberto Oliver said...

Oh, a great shot Rune, i like as well the way it reflects the people staring just in front, make me think of the reflecion over a living creature´s eye. Interesting link. Have a nice Weekend

John said...

Neat shot; hope you like the G11.

Through a glass darkly.

There are about seven bars in the street.

Hi Rune! Sorry for another long absence, but after a busy start of the year I decided to make a break during the Carnival week, anticipating new hard weeks ahead!!

Excellent picture! Everything on it!!

Meanwhile, Blogtrotter 2 is in Haiti, waiting for your comments. Hope you enjoy and have a great weekend!!

The reflections of the people really make this shot special! I also like the reflections of the lights - they sparkle.

Dina said...

Sparkling!

Stilig bilde ... artig med refleksjonen i bollen.

Spiderdama said...

Kult! Jeg synes også det så ut som en alpinhjelm først:-)

Tone said...

Dette var stilig, og veldig bra fanget!

Malyss said...

The shapes or shadows of people inside the bowl give a phantomatic mood to the picture..Great shot!

Carver said...

You captured a whole world in a bowl. Great shot.

Hege said...

LOVE IT!!!!

Dette var så utrolig midt i blinken, jeg kjenner jeg blir skikkelig glad av å se et så bra bilde.

Føler stemningen på utstillingen, og det av speilingen i en bolle! PERFEKT!

Sylvia said...

Fantastic! I was trying to recognize the people on the reflection! :)

zem said...

Great tonality, reflections and perspective. Nicely done.

Misalyn said...

Fantastic reflection shot.

awarewriter said...

An enigma. Is the image of the bowl? What the bowl "sees?" Both I think and perhaps more. I'm intrigued by this image on many levels.

ChrisJ said...

I know you like black and white shots, but I LOVE colored glass. So what color was it? :) I think I have a 'thing' about colors!

Anne said...

Enormt Rune :-) en hel verden og en hel flokk inni en blolle, he he

RennyBA's Terella said...

Indeed, Rune, an excellent reflection shot in monochrome!

Dagrun said...

Hehehe.. SÅ kult bilde da! Ser ut som om dere stod alle veldig langt unna og nikikket, men det gjorde dere vel neppe.

Ida said...

Stilig og elegant.
Spennende fotografert.
Du tryllet frem enda et kunstverk, i tillegg til skålen, gjennom bildet ditt.

Charles Bjørnsen Ravndal said...

Flott speileffekt! Jeg liker det!

Reader Wil said...

This is also a perfect reflection! I wouldn't mind having such a beautiful bowl in my house!
