Today’s assignment for Daily Shoot:

Use a mirror as part of a composition in a photograph today. Show yourself in the image if you’d like!

What can I say, I love the whole sideview mirror thing.

    I love the idea of using car mirrors (I was thinking this as I was driving to my tutoring job this morning)…nice shot!

  2. Brad says:

    Love the new glasses, Jim. Great look.

  3. Carlie says:

    I do too! I love using reflections in photography, and the car mirrors just give it a little something more. Have you also been looking for some change? (MJ reference). I also really hope you weren’t driving when you took this haha.

  4. Being a huge MJ fan, I automatically love this title/picture. I love the fact that the picture is still unique despite the fact that I think all of us have taken a side view mirror shot before. I like the way that the trees are out of focus. Very artsy 🙂

  5. Andy Rush says:

    I think this actually was a good choice. Also I admire your bravery with including yourself in the shot. I know how hard it must be to expose yourself like this.

  6. Reverend says:

    Andy,

    I often expose myself.

  7. can’t resist:

    “Roads? Where we’re going, we don’t need ROADS!”

  8. Janet Clarey says:

    Looking good and nice shot. This would be good for the McLuhanism…”We look at the present through a rear-view mirror.” …should you find occasion to use it.

  9. Reverend says:

    Peter and Janet,

    What;s funny id that while this shot has been overdone, there is something about the car and the mirror for see what’s gone, or coming that does fascinate me. And I think you mailed it Janet with that McLuhan post—it all seems so much about a particular moment of seeing, with all the blindspots intact..

    Thanks for the comments on the ever forward-looking bava 😉

  10. I like Janet’s take as well……knowing what road you’ve been down may lead you where you’re going…..or avoiding.

    I don’t know about you, but I take comfort in that there pit-cher. It’s good knowin’ he’s out there, The Rev, huntin’ zombies for all us sinners. Shoosh, I sure hope he still gets that MYSQLi patch in ok.

    I guess that’s the way the whole durned human comedy keeps perpetuatin’ itself, down through the generations, westward the wagons, across the sands-a-time until– aw, look at me, I’m ramblin’ again.

    Say Rev…ya got any more of that good sarsaparilla?

  11. You’re looking like Nick Nolte! A bit.. give it a few more years and grey maybe

  12. Reverend says:

    @Leigh,
    Hey, not everyone can look like Adonis! The grey is a physical manifestation of all the work I have been doing for edtech: the proof is in the beard 🙂
