When I read the theme for this month’s A Vintage Journey challenge Through the Looking Glass, I could picture this see-through tag, clear and mirror and textured surfaces.  I like to challenge myself, and I love word play, so Though the Looking Glass became, Looking Through (the) Glass.

It was challenging (insert understatement here…) taking pictures when the camera thinks you’re trying to focus on what is behind the plastics and not the plastic surfaces themselves.
