Rose Bowl Lens

The glass further acts like a lens and the object through the lens (a window to outdoors) appears upside down. You can see the burn at the bottom right below the vase.

Well observed Mary: it's a natural lens in it's own right
Mary MacADNski: It certainly concentrated the sunbeam.

A good lens Mary. That is almost like a gloved hand coming down to hold it.
Mary MacADNski: A neat effect. Thanks, Chad.

It has given a lovely effect, but I did look at yesterdays post and saw the burn mark, you would never have thought it could it,being indoors smile
Mary MacADNski: It was an important lesson. I won't leave a magnifying lens on my table again, I can assure you.
This is a wonderful image Mary, and a very interesting one.
Mary MacADNski: A true lens. No wonder the table burned.

Good image
Mary MacADNski: Thanks, Vintage.
The miniature upside down scene at the bottom is fascinating Mary
Mary MacADNski: It was really cool!
A very clever capture, Mary. It's funny how tospy turvy glass can make an object appear. Hope you will be able to repair the burn damage.
Mary MacADNski: The burn is very deep but was a great lesson.

Upside and inside out... I am always fascinated by these things.
Well seen and a beautiful picture.
Mary MacADNski: The table burning was very scary but this is intriguing.
Intriguing shot, Mary.
Mary MacADNski: Pretty cool eh?
Picures within pictures..Well seen and captured Mary.
Mary MacADNski: Last time to see a rose bowl on this table.
Some great experimentation Mary. You were having fun.
Mary MacADNski: I was in shock about the burn.

Your previous pic and this one: I am just wondering how many house got burned down, because of this magnifying effect and everyone remains mystified about the cause of the fire.

And at the same time you uncovered a photo object smile
Mary MacADNski: I spoke to a former fire chief and he tells me it is quite common. Sure scared me.
