This is what I saw as I was drinking water from a colorful old Tupperware glass in the kitchen one recent night with the light above the sink shining through. This glass was part of a set my kids used to drink from when they were small. The snap-on lids (again: Tupperware) had holes for straws that made the glasses virtually spill proof.
Kind of the elementary school version of a toddler’s sippy cup 😀
The shadow of my hand, the ripples of light created by the thick-and-thin rings of the glass’s outer design, the elliptical reflective surface of the water, the ethereal purple glow—all of it suddenly converged to shout, “Take a picture! This is a photo!”
And so it is! 😄
Update: My daughter just told me that this photo reminds her of computer screen backgrounds of the early 2000s. “That’s not an insult,” she hastened to reassure me. “I really liked those background pictures.”😂
