I’ve seen lots of photos on social media where people use glass balls as a subject of a photo with an interesting background.  I chose to use a plain black surface and a white background.  I raised the height of the tripod so the line of the background would approximately align with the glass ball.  I converted it to monochrome.  There’s a photo of the setup below.  My contribution to the Weekend in Black and White October 9, 2015
