Since Christmas is my favorite holiday, I naturally found myself taking a million pictures of ornaments and trees, and I found something special on this shot. I was trying to capture the iridescence of the bulb itself, not necessarily the ornament, and as I was adjusting my focus throughout the viewfinder, I noticed that I could actually see myself in the glass. It reminded me of those crystal balls with the winter scenes inside of them that you shake when you’re a kid, except this one was crystal clear.
Taken with a Zeiss 100mm f2 Makro Planar manual focus EF-mount lens.
