Shadow of blue glass bowl. I intended to shoot three stacked bowls, but was attracted by the shadows on the white paper coming from the strong indoor sunlight. The patterns had a watery look and became the primary focus of this shot.
60mm Nikkor macro lens; f14@1/200 sec. Minor levels adjustment and cropping in PSP8.
