ABOUT the SERIES: Light on Glass: Photos through glass, by Elizabeth Fiend was sparked by the photo  below taken through a triple sheets of glass — a restaurant window, and the two walls of a fish tank. A seconded photo in Tokyo of a woman striding by a mirrored store wall cemented Elizabeth’s passion for this concept. 









Subsequently, Elizabeth began searching out interesting ways to capture reflections and unique things behind glass, in mirrors, and inside display cases. The photos were taken in France, Italy, Japan and the United States where Elizabeth combined her love of travel and photography with a $300 point and shoot camera.


This photo of the photographer, Elizabeth Fiend, with the Blue Bear in Denver, Colorado. was taken by Allen Fiend, who can also be spotted in several photos. His patience while I lagged behind was most appreciated. — Enjoy! Click on the thought balloon icon to comment and share the photographs. — Love, Elizabeth Fiend
