I live much of my life behind glass. My 2006 Prius has over 215,000 miles, my husband’s 2004 truck has nearly 200,000 miles, and his “new” car, a 2010 Prius has nearly 80,000 miles on it. Usually I drive and can’t take pictures (or shouldn’t). On our accidental vacation, we had to stop. So did everyone else.
Nonetheless, my husband wanted me to stay behind the glass. Glass protects. For this picture, he pulled off the road. Elk grazed on both sides of the 2-lane highway. Other brave souls came out from behind the glass. I did too, and fortunately the elk were more interested in the grass than in us. 🙂
You don’t want to test glass beyond its protective endurance. Fortunately there was more to this floor than just glass because a few weeks after we took this picture, the glass busted! Those squares weren’t patterns on the carpet, they were tops of Chicago buildings.
Glass does more than protect. The University of Notre Dame collected more French stained glass than anywhere in France. It would take days to notice all the beauty in these glass windows.
People in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones, but what about people working in glass buildings? I guess they can throw anything they want during the daytime. You can’t see in anyway. I could have seen a reflection of me throwing a stone off the tour boat, but I was more than a stone’s throw away!
