"Little minds are tamed and subdued by misfortune, but great minds rise above them." ~ Washington Irving
Thanks very much for your comments regarding yesterday's "This Old House" photo. I never overlook or take for granted that you take the time to peruse and comment on my photos.
I love this decorative and unique display of orbs - created by me - at our youngest son's townhouse; they sure remind me of psychodelics and disco lights:). You can't see it, but a black wrought iron stand serves as the base. Then, I placed a solid, thick, red plate on top and sat the orbs in the silver tray to add interest to the area. Initially, I was going for the red plate to sit upright in the wrought iron stand (as an original and unique art piece), but it didn't fit, thus, plan B was the look shown here.
Also, the orbs conjured up memories of Soul Train, "the hippest trip in America" that, according to Wikipedia, "was an American musical variety show that aired in syndication from 1971 to 2006. In its 35-year history, the show primarily featured performances by R&B, soul, and hip hop artists, although funk, jazz, disco, and gospel artists have also appeared. The series was created by Don Cornelius, who also served as its first host and executive producer." The glare on the wall is from the orbs.
Have a wonderful "disco" kind of Wednesday:).
