Reflections in a Mirrored Eye


I asked bink what she'd choose to photograph in town, and she said, "Alleys." So we walked our bikes through the alley, taking photos for a possible series.
And a couple for my Self-Portraits in Unexpected Mirrors series.

Ramachandran is quite an interesting character...

Say, have you heard about the Mirror Project? It's been going on for some years now and is huge-ish: http://www.flickr.com/groups/mirrorproject/ . Might be something for your book.

As they say in fan:
I SEE YOU THAR.

Weird how you can go almost anywhere and have your reflection thrown at you;
you'd have to go far far away to be where you don't see yourself.

We don't have those cyclops reflectors here, but they were everywhere in Japan; the possibilities - without end!

SPARK: I never heard of Ramachandran until I came across this quote. I'll have to listen more closely to waht he says.

KRISTA: Thanks! No I didn't know that group. I'm not really conversant with Flickr.

MARET: So many shiny surfaces in our world... Weird to think of past times when there were very few.
I wonder why those mirrors were popular in Japan.
I don't see them often here either.

I have a quote of Ramachandran's, about synesthesia, about a foot away from me now. He studies neurological disorders and worked out a method of dealing with phantom limb syndrome in amputees (involving the use of mirrors). The book I'm thinking of is Phantoms in the Brain.
