Mirror by Sylvia Plath

I am silver and exact. I have no preconceptions.

Whatever I see, I swallow immediately.

Just as it is, unmisted by love or dislike

I am not cruel, only truthful –

The eye of a little god, four-cornered.

  1. So many layers of lives and thoughts. I love all these different perspectives, like compartmentalizing everything, keeping it all in place. Your tones are fantastic Elaine. Love this one πŸ™‚

  2. la photo n’a pas trop d’intΓ©rΓͺt par son sujet mais c’est bel exercice de style par le cadrage et le traitement vraiment trΓ¨s rΓ©ussi

  3. Nice shot, really like all the different elements you have gotten in this shot. Did you have to drive around a bit to capture only one car in the mirror?Great tones too.As usual lovely processing, well done

  4. getting quite creative in the framing department.. πŸ™‚ i like the selective focus and the processing too.. this looks cool! great shot! πŸ™‚

  5. Interesting that this should carry two different perspectives (counting the frame of the mirror as a second) without a human subject. But there’s a wonderful presence here, of *being*. In a way it reminds me of the first-person shooter videogames, Half Life and F.E.A.R. You, the photographer aren’t visible – despite referencing yourself – yet your presence is very much there. I like this alot, it makes great cinema, I think, if that isn’t too pretentious. πŸ™‚

  6. Interesting atmosphere! Because of the tones it makes me think the photo taker is a detective from an old movie and is on a stakeout!

  7. Did you shoot this one with your new camera? I’m guessing you did. The pastel hues are fantastic. I especially like the pink around the bridge.:-)

So... What do ya think?
