Bulb City - EXPLORE Apr 5, 2011 #48


My neighbourhood inside a lamp bulb


The recipe:


Fisrt you have to hollow the bulb lamp. I followed these instructions


Then I filled the bulb with water and hung it upside down from a stand.


I took the stand and lamp to my balcony and made the shot, having a gap of sky between the buildings as backdrop - leaving that refraction put all the scenery "inside" the bulb.

It was edited then in Lightroom 3 where I rotated the image 180º and used a split tone technique to get this result.
