Broken Glass (Halifax, Nova Scotia)

Digital original
The delight of macro photography lies in how it transforms the obvious into the magical - in this case, a broken piece of a television screen is turned into a wonderful landscape of delicate colour and striking contrast.

I spent an hour or more just lost on the minute details of the fractured glass - changing the camera position, or the angle of the glass even slightly created entirely new compositions, and revealed completely different compositional features.

The best discovery of this session was the magic that happened when I held the glass shard up against the sky, and everything changed from dark and dramatic to bright and luminous. Only an occasional dark line hinted at the landscape below the sky.
