Friday Photo Fun - Something Colorful

Something Colorful
by Rachel Hoyt

The inventor of this thing created 5,000 types of glass
and paid his male employees equal to each lass.
He charged a hefty sum to those who liked his work
but paid enough to artisans to not get called a jerk.

Friday Photo Fun is when I share a randomly captured moment,
or perhaps a photo experiment with more purposeful intent,
then pair it with a rhyming riddle to exercise your mind
and teach you more weird facts to which you once were blind.

After the answer is guessed, I will post a second, non-abstract photo...
and just in case you wanted to know,
the first is not a photoshopped version of the second -
they're shot using different techniques that to me beckon.

Wanda and Bubba guessed correctly


  1. A stained glass lamp shade!

    1. Yes... although there is an even more specific answer I will accept from anyone who wants to also be a winner. :)

      Good guessing, Wanda!

    2. Darn it, I ruined it again! Sorry everyone, guess my fish oil and daily glass of wine has kicked in and my lil ole brain cell is reaping the benefits finally! ;D

    3. You did NOT wreck it. All three of you more or less got it right, so I would say I made it too easy! :)

  2. More specific? Is it a HANGING stained-glass lamp shade? (Tiffany?)

    1. Yes, it's a Tiffany Lamp! :) Was this too easy? :)

  3. I was thinking stained glass too.

    Or Shrinky Dinks, but I don't think anyone ever paid a "hefty sum" for those.

    1. So... three way tie? I'm still giggling at the thought of someone paying a hefty sum for shrinky dinks. :)

  4. Happy Saturday, Rachel!
    I've been so busy this week that I missed your Friday Fun. :-(
    If I had made it on time, I would have gotten it right...thanks to a tip from my Assistant. Well done everyone!
    Hope you have a great weekend. Wanda's comment!
    Thanks for sharing.

    Thoughts Of Beauty In The Stillness Of Dawn...

    1. Thanks for visiting Andy. I like latecomers too. :)


Rhyming or not, I would like a lot to hear the thoughts my words brought...
