Chatoyance

If you don't know what that is, it is the way wood will change it's appearance with different light. This walnut mirror does it really well. I shot this by moving the overhead light just 1 foot. It's not as dramatic as some wood I've had but it changes quite a bit.

John,
I learn a few new things on here every day. Chatoyance, ok, I'll commit that to my memory bank. Sounds like one of those 10,000 unusual baby names.

BTW, nice mirror.
