Not All There

Definitely how I felt today! With school closed for a day and the boys home, and an extra dog and kid or two coming and going, my writing schedule has gone out of the window.

While Will was in his drum lesson, I took a quick walk to the Fitzwilliam Museum, where these magnificent mirror sculptures are on display in the garden. Then I remembered the theme this week is self-portaits, so decided to play. I wanted t use the round mirror with the hole in on the right hand side to get a reflection with a great big hole in my middle (there's an old film where Goldie Hawn has a big hole through the middle - that's the look I was going for!) but I couldn't get the angle right so just took a chunk out of my side instead!
this is a really great self portrait Helen!

Do you mean "Death Becomes Her"? I love that movie! and I LOVE this self-portrait, Helen. Very clever and carried out wonderfully! You've picked a perfect composition.

@jeremy - yes, Death Becomes Her - that's the one - I just have this image of Goldie Hawn in a red evening gown, staggering around with an enormous great hole through her middle - (comedic violence at its best!) - thank you for your nice comment!

Ah pity you couldn't get the hole in the middle, I remember that film, But this shot is really very good
