I didn't think I would be able to capture even a little glimpse of it with a camera, but I took my best shot at is....haha literally.

I love kaleidoscopes. They transport you into a weird world of beads, and small panels of plastic, a world that is only dark shadows and strange shifts, without a jubilant sunbeam to glint off of the prisms. There is almost something poetic about the playthings of children from so long ago, of children who are not children anymore. A kaleidoscope, a two way train trip to a world of colour.
