I have been enjoying fellow photographer Jez Braithwaite’s creative images with his new lensball and decided to have a little play.

Wishing you a blessed Spring Equinox if you’re in the Northern Hemisphere and a happy Autumn Equinox to our friends in the Southern Hemisphere. May you all stay safe and well,

with love from Eivor, Pearl and Xenia xxx

  1. I can understand she prefers her own pink ball…but I don’t know what these lensballs are made of? I can imagine not something tasty. Wishing you all a beautiful and peaceful Equinox ♥

    1. Thank you so much for your kind words dear Ann-Christine. The lensball is made of glass and too heavy for whippets to play with 😉 Wishing you a beautiful Equinox too and please give Totti and Milo a big pat from us all 🤗💖 xxx

    1. Thank you so much for your kind words dear Bella, Pearl realised this ball was a bit different from the one she usually plays with! We’re having a very sunny afternoon here and will send some Scottish sunshine your way 🌞💖 xxx

  2. This was fun to see, Xenia. I ordered a set of 3 lens balls (in graduating sizes), but have not used them yet. They show everything upside down? Now, I cannot wait to haul them out and play!

    1. Thank you so much for your kind words dear Lois, they’re real fun to play with 😀 It shows the landscape upside down in these images and that’s how they were taken in camera. You can play around with the angle of your camera and also rotate the image after you’ve taken it. Wishing you lots of fun with your set and looking forward to seeing your interpretations soon! 🤗💖 xxx

    1. Thank you so much for your kind words dear Meg, the way the ball reflects the world back seems very fitting at this time. We’re all in this together and can be there for each other. Wishing you safe and well too 💜 xxx
