Who's the fairest of them all?

I remember I was a freshman in high school, when I got my first real camera to take with me on my Latin class trip to Italy. We were in Rome sitting on couches in a hotel lobby, when I looked up at the ceiling and saw that it was covered with mirrors. It was then that I first thought to point my camera to the mirrors and capture the entire group and myself, taking the picture.

Since then I have shot many "mirror shots" in elevator doors, darkened windows, chrome bumpers and of course... mirrors. Last year I was pleasantly surprised to discover I was not the only one. Heather from not only shot pictures of this genre, but she had the idea to group them all together in what she calls "Jezebel's Mirror". She has scads more than I do.

All of my shots thus far have been on film. While I was in Las Vegas for Comdex, I had a DC 4800 at my disposal, so I got my first digital mirror shot. I sent it to her for her site FOJM... Friend's of Jezebel's Mirror.

And here it is. (When the page opens up, another mirror picture will load, not mine...wait a moment and my picture will pop up)
