    man in the mirror.... something very different from me.

    Feeling extremely jaded and bored so went off in a different direction. It seems to earned me my 13th 'Explore' on flicker so I wondered what you guys would make of it.

    man in the mirror.... something very different from me.

    Very evocative, Sharon. It appears that we are given the choice of two realities to enter into, one just an altered perception of the other. But as we tend toward choosing the more real of the two, we discover on closer look that it doesn't appear completely real either. Is all reality an illusion? Is that man Me, looking for a way out?

    As much as I've enjoyed your other work, I'd love to see more of this genre. This is stuff that moves me.

    Reflection of a reflection. A distorted one.

    It makes me think.

    I like it.

    At first glance, it's an intriguing composition. After looking at it just a bit more, I realize that I had no idea what I was seeing. This is really terrific stuff! Do more of it!

    Really interesting photo. Nice job executing it. I like the "sense" of the scene.

    Thanks Guys. I wasn't at all sure how this would go down but I really feel the need to explore new avenues.

    Mark..a flicker 'Explore' is a sort of award for being 'interesting'. A handful of pics submitted on a single day get highlighted for attention and it's a lovely boost when it happens.

    A most interesting image. Congrats on the "Explore" - definitely a good choice.

    Congrats, Sharon. Definitely a fantastic shot. There's lots to draw the eye and the light is great too.

    Sharon, that is a really intriguing shot. Not something I'd ever come up with but still interesting to me. Well done.

    This just confirms that I'm boring. I've never had an 'Explore'. Mind you, I don't have the sort of amazing, creative imagination that can envisage this sort of image and then make it.

    This is absolutely great stuff! At first I was annoyed that the prominent vertical in the middle wasn't vertical. I still am. And I think that's just as it shuld be. This picture has so many layers it should be in a gallery or museum. Makes my heart beat a little faster

    Ole...thank you so very much. There isn't a true vertical or a horizontal in that hallway, I am constantly amazed the roof stays on! ( I kinda like that.)

    Donald and all other Flicker users...have you actually checked to see if you have an Explore? Try typing your info into this..http://bighugelabs.com/scout.php

    It gets worse.

    I typed in Screen Name or Email or User ID (in fact all of them), as requested and it told me 'Person not found'.

    So, not only am I boring, but I don't actually exist.

    I got a whole lot of stuff telling em to make some link between my Flickr and something to do with toys. Seemed to get very complicated.

    Sharon, you should get jaded and bored more often! Stunning image, thanks for sharing.
