I love the angle and the composition, with the edge of the mirror and the words running downhill. Great shot! :)

snow, hair, eye, silver camera - I am thinking the words "bond girl" - could be a new poster for the spy who love me!

This is a fantastic shot. Really great angle on it.

If only you had Photoshop you could clone out "are" and then you'd have the title embedded in the photo: "in mirror they appear." Oh, or even better "in mirror she appears." That would be cool.

I was actually playing around with crop to make the words say something cool, but then it ruined the composition of the photo so I went back to the original shot.

It seems like it would be cheating to Photoshop a whole word out of it. And I don't have Photoshop anyhow ....

I was trying for

IN MIRROR
HEY APPEAR

Silver Creek Mom said...

Look like a Surrealist painting!!!

Wonderful!

Scrivener said...

I downloaded a copy and erased "are" with no problem. The hard part was adding the s in to make it "she." But I could erase the words to make it say "in mirror hey appear" pretty easily, i think.

Here is what it looks like after being photoshopped by Scrivener:

Both versions are simply wonderful!

This is good. A prompt for a poem. Thanks, Jo(e)!

....though I like yours better. It's mysterious, that half word there, "clos...." What is it? What will appear? Who will appear?

Interesting.

This was an absolutely amazing photo, I love it! But the best part of this post and the thread that follows (I haven't been here in a couple of weeks more or less) is to see you guys talking. It makes me really happy. Maybe this February will be much better than last year's after all. I think of you a lot in February.
