Zoom In Zoom Out #12

This time last week I was scrap, scrap, scrapping away at a wonderful retreat organised by my friend and fellow Master Forger Lesley.  She has blogged a few photos from the weekend here ... can you spot me?  No doubt there'll be a layout or two about the retreat to go with the ones I made at the retreat!

I was sitting on a sofa in the hotel reception, waiting for my lift home, reflecting on the challenges, the chocolates and the chatter, my new friends, their inventive fancy dress and the delicious food ... when I looked up and spotted ...


... the most amazing light fitting!  Our crop room was directly opposite the reception desk so I must have passed underneath it a hundred times during the weekend ... ????

It just goes to show what you might be missing if you don't take a moment to look around (up?) from time to time.  With thanks to Helena and her ZIZO meme which is making me do just that!

cool light fixture...
I agree..most of the time they are "invisible" and it is too bad that most of the time we can't get a good look at them(unless we do a zoom-in)!!!
It would make a neat shot at night too I bet.

A stunning light fitting indeed - I did mean to take a photo (and didn't) so very glad that you did.
Glad you had a good weekend :)

looks so shiny must bounce the light around too from that lovely roof. Glad y'all had fun at the retreat too.

Wow! What a perfect ZIZO shot. And I definitely agree with you - the ZIZO meme is making me pay more attention to details around me.

What a great "find!" I do think photography helps us be more aware of our surroundings.
