This was originally composed for my FB group 1/52 challenge. I wondered about blind mirrors and that a blind mirror is in fact a contradicition in terms; the mirror doesn’t see, so can’t be blind. However, if ‘blind’ is taken to be ‘non-reflective’ the whole purpose of the mirror is gone and it becomes noting but an empty picture frame, or doesn’t it? Or maye it becomes magical at this point because it then reflects what’s inside the viewer?

Part of my new series of images for licensing on Arcangel-Images – use this code: SYST-0162

Created with my own photographs in Photoshop, no stock used.

I am a very creative person and it’s my way of dealing with the world, inside and out. I am only happy when I am making things or painting or writing. There are just not enough hours in the day…. I am into poetry and photo manipulation at the moment and also dabbling in photography. :-)
