Scrappy Mandala Grouted

I promised a post-grout photo of this scrappy mandala.  I love how the "raven" colored grout blends so well with the slate.  I was wondering why the photo came out orangey in the upper left section of the mosaic, and realized that the red stained glass was reflecting the plants outside our window, as I take my photos on our old wide windowsill.  If you look closely you can see bits of green reflected.  Photographing mosaics is always a challenge.  A mosaic is like chameleon!  Depending on what the light is like, the translucency of the tesserae, the angle.  It's magical setting up at a craft show and turning on all the halogen lights.  I've had people say they could've sworn the mandalas were lit from within.
