A Few Reflections

The Other Side of the Mirror

Greyhound

Coffee Spoon


This months theme was an easy one. Reflections. I'm always looking for another reflection shot. To prove that here are three recent photos. The first one is the back side of a side mirror from an old car that I saw at the Retrorun meet.

The second one is actually from the Midsummer celebrations last weekend! A newish tradition in Sorunda is to arrive to the festivities in your classic car. If you look really closely at this Ford Greyhound ornament you can see at least three versions of me.

Finally a self portrait in a coffee spoon. Over the last two weeks I have been enjoying a lot of coffee (and cake), at a cafe in Handen. By chance I decided to visit the place one afternoon and on the way there I met an acquaintance who was heading the same way. Fred was meeting my friend Jim at the cafe so we walked over there together. Arriving, we couldn't see Jim, but Fred noticed another buddy of his, Magnus, and before you knew it the four of us became a tight group and now you are likely to see us there most afternoons. The coffee is only 15 SEK and we can drink as much as we like. One of the owners, Henrik, and the poor waitress Andrea have already gotten used to us taking photos of them, and everyone else we find interesting like the tattooed hairdresser that works next door.

Love the look of the wrong side of the mirror in the first picture and the wonderfully titled 'Self portrait in a coffee spoon'.

Nice reflectons. I can't see myself in my reflection.

Bravo. Three fine reflection shots.

Great shots. It sounds like the cafe owner may have to raise his prices when he sees you guys coming.

Great shots (as always :)
On the self portrait in the coffee spoon it looks like you're beginning to get silver color in your hair; good to be near a hair dresser if needed :-D

Is it the real STEFFE reflected in those photos or just one of his many clones??!

HI Steffe! Always good to see you in your shots. These are wonderful. I can't decide between the mirror back and the spoon shots which is my fave. Regardless, we always eat up your creative self portrait shots. How did you ever hold the spoon so steady for such a tack sharp image? It's great.

Love the hood ornament shot. So deco. Took a steady hand too.

Very clever! All shots are great, but the spoon made me smile! :-)

I'm looking at your photos with my 9-year-old niece. These ones are her favourite so far :-)

Here is her comment: Οι φωτογραφίες σου είναι πολύ ωραίες. Απ' τη Μαίρη.

Translation: Your photos are very beautiful. From Mary.

My thanks to the obviously very talented Mary! And to her lovely aunt.
