Alice in Wonderland/The Pool of Tears

"I wish I hadn't cried so much!" said alice, as she swam about, trying to find her way out...Just then she heard something splashing about in the pool a little way off, and she swam nearer to make out what it was; at first she though it must be a walrus or a hippopotamus, but then she remembered how small she was now, and she soon made out that it was only a mouse, that had slipped in like herself.

All done with mirrors, and photoshop.

I was wondering how you managed to get the reflection, thanks for the last line. So wonderfully done.

Rohzi -

Exactly. I was shocked to find a friend of mine who was either a literature or journalism major had never read it. But my harassing him about it has not has not had any results - although he has a young daughter, so he may have read it aloud to her by now.

i quite like this. i find mirrors and reflections interesting.

also, i watched the movie you recommened some time ago called snow cake and i thought it was a pretty good story. sometimes movies like that-ones that focus on one person like the autistic mother-tend to go on a bit too long and thus get boring. but i think snow cake eneded in time and thus was still interesting and successful in its sory-telling.
thank you for mentioning it!
