Damon Crain's website is one of the nicest. Hilary you should also link to the website from his photos.

Is it the camera or have the Blenko colors grown duller over time?
The ruby and emerald glass I own does not appear this vivid and clear.
Not a complaint but a comment.

Lewis,
Its a combination of great camera and artist taking the photo.
These are professional shots by Damon Crain. Although Larry from Texas and West Virginia Jan also are now taking professional quality photos to shoot glass is very difficult, I think you either have to love glass, or be professional or better yet a professional who know glass.
Sue is correct D.C.'s photos are always beautiful and his websites are like Blenko candies.
Mountain Rita I'm planning a Richard Blenko Birthday post so be happy and wait for this! hjh
