Reflections And Formed Patterns

I took several of these Fuji Instax instant photos on Christmas eve and had them sitting in the studio table the following morning.  As I rolled out of bed, I noticed the morning sun's reflection on the wavy surface of each glossy instant print.  I took the camera (other, digital) and after playing around with the exposure settings, I was finally able to capture the patterns that I'm hoping will become the basis of a new drawing series for 2012.  What looks like diffraction patterns are in reality, just simple rays of light that can be traced geometrically, as they filter through the east-facing window blinds and reflect on the print surface.
