    1. I was amazed by the lovely patterns the glass made as it shattered slowly. It also made a noise like ice does when it’s freezing.

      Thank you for joining us for Wordless Wednesday. We look forward to welcoming you every week.

  1. This looks so intricate the way the glass has shattered Hugh. I looked on the comments above to see if you described what happened and that is rather scary, but you’re lucky it remained in place and had the outside pane. Interesting about the build-up of gas causing the glass to shatter. I bought my mom a magnifying glass years ago – it was not the kind of magnifying glass that Sherlock Holmes used, but looked like a orange half and it sat flat side down in a wooden tray. It came with instructions to keep it out of the sun, especially if you left it sitting on a piece of paper to read, because the prisms shooting through the glass could catch the paper on fire. It has sat in a dark area of the house since Day #1.

    Here is my Wordless Wednesday post – I know you will have this bird over there as I follow a UK blogger who photographs shorebirds at Titchfield Haven and often has seagulls in his posts.

    1. I remember being taught to light a fire using a magnifying glass at school, Linda. It was in one of the science lessons, so we were all safe during the experiment. Fortunately, the sun was out that day, shining through the school lab window.

  2. We have this crazy thing in our culture called competitive eating, Hugh. Participants compete and shatter records as they eat things like as many hot dogs as they can in ten minutes. I can barely more than a minute or two before I feel ill.

    1. I’ve heard of those challenges, Pete. I don’t know how people can eat so much food in a short space of time. I’d be looking for a bucket because I wouldn’t be able to keep anything down.

  3. Cool shot looking through hundreds of shards of glass, Hugh! Is that your car’s windshield or window? Mine looked like that years ago when someone tried to break into my car. Safety glass tends to break like that to minimize cuts. Looking through the breakage sure makes a compelling image!

    1. It’s a small pane of one of the windows in my study, Terri. Each window is divided into four panes, with this particular pane shattering. I could still hear the glass crackling an hour after it happened. Fortunately, the glass never broke and remained in place until the glazier came to fix it.

      Yes, it gives everything on the otherside of the shattered glass a different look. Almost like a window looking into a parallel world

        1. Something about a buildup of gas between the two panes of glass (it’s double-glazed) caused by a dramatic rise in temperature (the window gets lots of morning sun, especially in the autumn and winter months). It had been a cold night, and the morning sun (still intense at this time of the year) caused the gas to expand quickly and shatter the inside pane of glass. The outside pane did not shatter.
