Wonderful self-portrait/reflection! A very creative shot, and I really like the blue highlights.

Excellent shot. I like the way you captured the reflection in the other nmirror too.

This looks like a cameo scene captured in macro within a leafless tree! Fascinating!

Jacob said...

Very clever, VP! Looks like you were inside one of those magic mirror places at an amusement park! Funky and fun shot!

Kate said...

Ah, another meme. There are so many that it's hard to choose. You did a superb job with "reflections" in the mirror.

What a fun shot! Love it.

I don't get seasick on boats, but I could get seasick looking closely at this. It's a wonderfully creative shot, though. Very nice!!!

Regina said...

Really nice!

Wolynski said...

You're so short, stumpy and distorted... Just kidding. I remember those mirrors in Italy, so you can see round corners.

Lily Hydrangea said...

Ingenious idea VP!
I love this.

Hilda said...

The picture gives an impression of cahos, except you, in the central point! Unusual and funny self portrait!

Andreea said...

There's a double reflection at work here. Nice shot.

Leif Hagen said...

Fun self-portrait - you just forgot to wave!

Steffe said...

You are just like me! I can never walk pat a mirror like this one without shooting a self portrait!

VP said...

@ Fio - Ciao, Fio!

@ ciel - No, I had just payed my respect to the King of the Harbor.

@ Steffe - You caught me: I have dozens of these shots...

Nice capture of the double reflections.

Interesting picture, I love an opportunity to view another self portrait.

Fantastic! Similar to the Van Eyck, Arnoldfini Portrait, where the artist is a dot in the mirror behind the couple.

Very cool, and I love that you caught a double reflection. Fun shot! Kathy

VP said...

@ Ilse - One of my favorite paintings, this is a compliment I won't forget!

JM said...

Enlarging the photo you can clearly see the reflections on the other mirror. Pretty cool!
