Wow, talk about an “Antique Roadshow” experience. Alex, Christine and I went over to Jackie and Sebastian’s Sunday evening. Christine is leaving on Tuesday and wanted to say goodbye to them. We were all siting around chatting and for some reason the topic of turtles came up. Jackie related a story of how she and a friend did research that involved turtles. She explained that she hadn’t seen her friend for a long time and then, out of the blue, a package arrives for Jackie from the US. She showed us what she received. It was a crystal turtle. A beautiful piece. I looked at it and it had Lalique written on the back. I thought, wow, I’m holding a Lalique, hehehehe. Anyhow, crystal has always been an interesting photo subject because of the way you can play with light. Here’s some shots of the turtle on the dining room table. Sebastian held a lamp over it.

and upside down …….

and here is the famous mark …….

You could probably photograph this all day and come up with all kinds of interesting photos.
