Pia Davis photograph of a hand blown glass ornament made by Tim Lazer,
taken in Founex, Switzerland.

"The element of surprise is ever present when looking through a macro lens at hand blown glass in the sunshine. You cannot predict how the variables will respond-to the texture of backdrop, to the sun playing on the leaves in the background, seen through the prisms and curves of the glass - truly a magical discovery on each journey through the lens. " - Pia Davis
