Theme Day: Mirror

 

My "mirror" image is a bit different.  This photo dates back to 2015 when I used it as my piece for my Art Challenge group.  The challenge was "the boys of summer" and I will admit to you that I had no idea what that meant.  It wasn't until a friend said something to the effect of "oh good, I love baseball" that I figured it out.  Not being a baseball fan myself, I instead found this sheet of scrap book paper printed with baseballs and photographed a polished spoon sitting on the paper and reflecting the print.  Mirrors come in many forms, don't they?

Looks good to me.

A tricky way to take the photo but well worth it. You get a homerun for this shot. ;-)

Love the photo! Wasn't "The Boys of Summer" a Don Henley song? As I recall the video showed people on a beach, not at a baseball game, so I wouldn't have known what that meant either!

Great take on the "mirror" meme, very creative Sharon :)

Many years ago, there was a website called "The Mirror Project" that published contributors photos that included a reflection of the photographer. I contributed several times. The project was privately run, and ended when reportedly someone "dropped" the server, really accidentally dropped it. The last time I checked, part of the archive was back on line.

That is so good, Sharon!

A very interesting photograph, Sharon. You did well.

That's creative, and a single game does go through a lot of baseballs.

Clever use of the mirror with the baseball design. It looks really cool.
