The colors in the background were from a wax warmer reflecting on the wall. I don't recall what lens I was using.

Rich medley of color - nicely conceived and nicely executed.

It was one of those "ah ha" moments. I had a bouquet of flowers on my kitchen counter and as I bent over to pick up a dropped spoon, I noticed the light reflection on the wall behind the flowers.... and I said, "ah ha!" I grabbed my camera and took several shots, this being the only keeper of the bunch. IIRC, it was with a Series One 28-105mm Vivitar lens that produced some rather soft focus that worked well in this particular instance.
