weekly photo challenge: Unusual

This week, the WordPress weekly photo challenge asks us to post something that says “unusual.”

I immediately thought, ‘Holy cow, this will be an easy one, I have gobs of unusual photos!’  But there’s the rub – what says unusual best when nearly everything is unusual?!

Then I thought about the beautiful and unusual chandelier I’d seen weekend in the lobby of the Adventura Arts & Cultural Center. in Miami Beach.   I was standing in the lobby of the theatre, and after the show looked up to see this unusual and fabulous lighting design, in the picture.  (I wish I could give credit to the person who designed these unique chandeliers.  If anyone knows whose work this is, please advise – I’d like to credit the artist.)

Anyway, below is what the grouping of one set of lights.  Below this top photo, the result of manipulating the image…

I’ve manipulated the photo to appear like the glass bubbles are shooting up instead of hanging down from the ceiling.
