Wow, it really IS a point-and-shoot! :-) (Not that I didn't believe you, but...your photos are just so great!)

And I'm just weird enough to wonder if the breakage was on purpose (for the shot) or accidental (allowing for a great shot).

Concretegodmother: Thanks for the compliment!

The breakage was accidental. The mirror was being used as a pond for the Christmas village under our tree, and one of the kids fell over onto it.

We've broken so many of these mirrors over the years that we should be in for about seven centuries of bad luck.

Just throw some salt over your left shoulder, and you should be fine. Beautiful picture.

Broken - ironic title given how whole your family and life feel when I read about them.

Jo(e), all poets are a little broken, as you know. This is a great shot. I saw it SOMEwhere ELSE too. ;-)

Happy new year !

Yesterday, I walked across the bedroom floor and heard a crunch and looked down and guess what? I found the little hand mirror that I had been looking for. Wish I had read your post first, and tried the fragmented mirror/picture. By the way, have a Happy New Year.

I love the belly dancing fingers, too!

That is an amazing picture. How did you do it? I mean, you're sitting on the floor and the mirror reflecting you is in pieces...and you're in motion, judging by your hair. Amazing.

Rev dr mom: Oh, I used magic.

This catches me and holds me and has stayed in my mind and in a deeper part of my psyche too.
