Through the Looking Glass #2

It's not that this is a particularly astounding photo so much as that I got such a kick out of the fact that since the two illustrations face each other, I could combine them into one just by inserting the little mirror and tilting up the right hand page.

This post on Walking Home to Fifty is very moving.

Simple execution of an ingenious idea that could only occur in a privileged mind...

I wonder how tiny this mirror must be!

Reflections and more reflections...your work makes me see Wonderland-ish things everywhere.

That is way cool what you did.

I love this one -- especially how she's disappearing and appearing at the same time regarding the mirror. Reading how you only had to tilt the page to get the reflection gave me a laugh - how lucky, but good for you for realising it could be done!

Lovely job on the book, Susan. I will wait for 'pay day' then *must* have a copy....just for this type of "seeing" that you do.

Simple ideas are nearly always the best... and the most effective.

I do think it is astounding! One of my favorites, actually.

Thank you for the explanation, I'd have been up all night puzzling this one.

Loved it, especially the muzziness in the mirror image.

Celeste Bergin said...

well, it is an outstanding photo--for the reasons you mentioned. I love the mirrored image!
