  1. Howdy Polly –

    Great shots all, but Three Eyes for Viewing has got to be the one I enjoyed most. Probably because the photo makes the photographer real………..

    • Thank you so much… you are so right… definitely tricky. I have attempted self-portraits maybe three different times. And, each time I do, I tell myself I need to have my tripod in order to do what I want. Unfortunately, my little cheap tripod was all I had with me so these will have to do for now. I’m so glad to hear you enjoyed them anyways! Thank you for your comment 🙂

    • Thank you! You know… I started off with a tripod, but my good tripod is at the re:loom studio. And the little cheap one I had to work with was too light for my camera, so I was scared my camera was going to topple over! 🙂 You are right, though, I need to try again with my tripod. Oh, well… next time! Thanks for the comment and glad you still enjoyed them 🙂

  2. Great series Polly! The old mirror frame is beautiful and the antiquing effect makes it quite mysterious. I like the glimpses of the photographer. Self portraits are so fun, to make and look at, such an intriguing process.

  3. Reflective photography is very challenging. thanks for sharing this series and for figuring out how to handle the light! You did a great job.
    Cheers
