what a beautiful shot full of glimmery color!

Thank you James,

It was a night market and the stalls were using low-watt lights, so I was lucky!

Keep smiling

Thanks, Bridget,

I really liked your shot and the explanation - and the reflection in the `bubble'.

Keep smiling

Great subject David, they sparkle well...I would be introuble (broke)if my wife found that place

Jules said...

Oh David I do love "bling" - gorgeous shot!!!

How does wordless Wednesday work? Sorry but could you pop your answer on my comments page - I have a great deal of trouble getting into your blog and opening your comments page is also difficult.

This is the third time i have done it - it either downloads without the visual verification or it drops out sending - aaaahhhh!!!!

on another site, you mentioned trying to find writing talent from around the world. i would love to get your take on any of the 3 videos posted at http://www.youtube.com/user/bygINCpresents. it's hard enough getting published so i thought why not just put the words out there with some images.

other writing can be found at http://web.mac.com/orondeash.

would love to get the take of a seasoned writer.

congrats on the new book. maybe we'll see each other on the circuit soon.

Fantastic photographs. I loved all the gold around when I lived in Nepal

pink and gold and shine

Hammer said...

Nice! Although it might be a bit much with my jeans and T shirt .

david mcmahon said...

G'day Fyreman Doug,

Thanks for visiting. The sparkle was what caught my eye - and yes, our wives would definitely have a sparkle in their eyes as well if they saw this place!!

Keep smiling

Hi Jules,

Don't forget to say hi to your Mum (the latest blogger) for me.

Will drop by your blog and leave the answer to your question.

Keep smiling

Hi Bygpowis,

Always happy to help. Will drop by your link for sure. If you haven;t heard from me in the next 48 hours, give me a not-too-gentle reminder.

Keep smiling

Hi JoyIsMyGoal,

Shiny is great to look at but can be hard to photograph, sometimes!

Keep smiling

David

david mcmahon said...

Hi Hammer,

You always make me smile. Goes well with denim and T-shirts - but stay away from disco lights because they reflect everything!

We'd have to chnge your name from Hammer to Strobe!

Keep smiling

David

Lost for words David.haha.
Great colours in the bangles.

Sandy Carlson said...

Oooh. That's beautiful. Great shot.

david mcmahon said...

Hi Imac,

Been enjoying your cards ...

Hi Sandy,

It was a hot night and I was getting bitten by ``Diwali flies'' which are little green insects. They were right into my scalp and giving me hell, but the picture was more important!

Keep smiling

katherine. said...

pretty pretty...

lime said...

beautiful, and i actually like that the background has a lot of color as well. it adds to the sparkle somehow.

david mcmahon said...

Hi Katherine,

It was an amazing sight - I didn't know quite where to point my camera first!!

I think all that stuff is hand-made, too.

Keep smiling

David

david mcmahon said...

Hi Lime,

There was so much sparkle in that roadside stall that it was impossible to capture in one frame.

Loved your Trinidad post.

Keep smiling

David

Sandee (Comedy +) said...

Hi David - I agree that photographing shiny things can be difficult, but you have done it well here. Happy WW.

Hi Siani,

Thank you. I guess the beauty of it is that it is all handmade.
