Still Life 05

This was done before digital photography and before PhotoShop when you had to do it the hard way. The original was a 2 1/4 color transparency. The glasses were filled with blue water and sitting on a translucent base. There was a red light below and a white light coming from the rear. This is an un-PhotoShoped scan of the original.
