Smoke and Mirrors
I wasn't thinking of writing this photo up - but the more I look at it, the more I see some interesting relationships.
It has an other worldliness about it and for people who would like to make their products, services and /or themselves out of this world, here is my take.
1. The photo was taken in the window of a very reputable antique shop, so the items are genuine and of quality - lesson one.
2. There is a mirror - to intensify the product/picture through reflection - augment what you have by imitation, reflection and whatever you have.
3. There is a ghost-like quality to the photo - bring a third demension, whereever you can, to whatever you have. Think of the richness of otherworlds - bring them in. We have lace shawls based on the signs of the Zodiac, for example!!!
4. Reflected in the window is the everyday too...ing & fro...ing of ordinary people - raise them to the sublime with your talents.
Enough said - have an out of this world evening.
