No one makes Blenko look any better than you!
Your photos are much better than the Blenko Glass home page photos.
I am enamoured with each and every photo - the color - the composition
amazing.
I unlike Phani and WVJanis know nothing of photography or the arts.
So I can't tell you technically whats special, other than you have a way with the camera and the glass.
Thank you!

bruce have you thought of doing postcards with your photos?
I bought laura moul's picture postcards at Blenko a few years ago for $5 each. Your photos are far superior.

Bruce what's the story behind the glass? With you there is often a 'finders' story, and I adore your success.
I lack that glass karma.

Thank you for all the wonderful comments. These are both mis-lists from ebay. I got very lucky in that they were both a matching shade of Tangerine even though they were from two different buyers and purchased a year apart. Neither looks to have been used and both cleaned up beautifully. The #647 should have been properly identified as a #6147. That is my error since I did not catch it till much later after emailing it to the blog. As for whether to market my photos I do have a couple of ideas floating around but for now I just enjoy the challenge of producing images that bring out the characteristics of the glass that draws all of us to Blenko. Stay tuned, as these are only the first two of several images that I was able to capture during a recent ice storm that boosted the light for me.
