Mirror MIrror July Challenge
Ok, here's my July photo. Ouch! Two things, I was at the Marin County Fair and happened across this mirror in the Fine Arts expo. One of the submissions was a beautiful inlaid frame for a full-length mirror. I snapped a couple of pictures of myself. I was afraid to shoot a close up because I'm having a mid-life breakdown showing up as dermatitis all over my face. Pretty gruesome. My hair is also dirty, uncombed and drying after being soaked in my early morning Bollywood dance style class I'm taking -- Ewwww!!!! But I like how the hilights show up in my hair -- they contrast nicely with the stripes of the frame. The other thing is as I was walking away from the frame one of the curators came up and said to me, "Please don't take pictures of other artists' work." I sheepishly said, "I'm just taking a picture of myself for my blog!" She replied, "Well, OK then!"
