“Glassware” – Casa Loma Library

“Glassware” - Casa Loma, Library

I love the way light plays through glass. In this case, a set of glasses set up for a formal dinner in the Casa Loma library. We did the ‘tourist’ thing a week ago with our cousins from California. It’s been a very long time since I have visited Toronto’s castle. The library is a large room that has been repurposed as a formal dining room and these glasses were set up on one of the many tables.

It seemed like a nice shot, with the light coming in though a distant window. The natural light intensified the gold colour of the damask table-cloth, making the glasses glow with gold flecks. It’s probably not a prize winner but an interesting image for me. I just like the way it looks. If I had to re-compose the image, I would have moved further to the right and centred the front glass a bit better.
