Focus on Life Week 46- Reflections

Oh my, it's been a long time since I've posted a photo. New place, new life, new work to be done- it all adds up. I wanted to be sure and tell y'all about a book I just read: Eight Girls Taking Pictures by Whitney Otto. I don't usually recommend books, but this one was wonderful and very inspirational- it's historical fiction with an emphasis on the lives of women throughout the 20th century.
On to this week's prompt- I love to look at things in mirrors. I'm having a hard time choosing from the photos I took last night- the three part mirror in my bathroom is so much fun to play with! I've always been intrigued by the idea of multiple mirror reflections. Here's a little something that explains a bit about it and shows some cool examples.


 I also like to put some of my beads on mirrors- like these marching hedgehogs. I know, I'm supposed to be reflecting on my life- instead I'm reflecting on mirrors! Check out the blog links at the bottom of the page to see what others are reflecting on.

Hey - the prompt said 'reflect' and I think you pretty much nailed it!! Great photos! I'm going to check out your book suggestion now. :-)

How fun to be in a new place where you can decorate as you please.

I love the shots of the 3 part mirror, and you little hedgies are darling!!!!

Oh - I really love the photo on the lower right. It reminds me of Alice through the Looking Glass. Very nice reflections!

THe family home had a three way mirror.. I miss it, I never know what the back of my hair looks like now! And my lap top wouldn't work this morning so I'm now using my husbands... at least it does have a decent sized monitor!

I like your take on reflecting Laurie. I tried a mirror shot but I waited until too late in the day and the pic was too dark to use or else it had a huge spot in it.

Lots of reflections here! What cute hedgehogs.

Love this "reflective" post, Laurie... mirrors can be our best friends or not, depending on how much truth we are willing to accept LOL

Ohhh, I love those, Laurie! That third one, on the right, is very cool. Sometimes I need to take things more literally, I'm glad you did. :-)
I had no idea we were so close by...I'm by you quite frequently trekking here and there. Will wave next time as I drive by! :-)

Mirrors reflect so perfectly what we often don't see ourselves. Thank for some wonderful photos that express that.
