Circle of Life

Was shooting away in Lebanon - and noticed how life looked more interesting through these street weird circled mirrors (as it changes the perspective of everything) and was glad the mirror was surrounded by darkness so the view within would get more attention.

Hope you like this. Comments & critique always welcomed.

Awesome shot fa1sal, it looks like a painting within a mirror, it would be cool to do a series of different images in the mirror, very impressive work, love it!

very cool concept! I've been planning on doing something similar but with a window reflection.

I agree, I like the dark background so the reflection gets the attention it deserves. Great image!!

Thanks again Susan and Jenn. Really appreciate these comments.

I love the idea of the series (which is great since i'm going back to Lebanon in a couple of weeks!). I actually took a shot of myself in one of these mirrors. Note to self: weird perspectives do not work on humans! LOL - especially ones you like!

LOL. Nice try, Susan!

Three reasons that would never happen:
1- The perspectives of me are messed up. (Ok, EVEN MORE messed up!) LOL
2- I was in the middle of the street. I was very self-aware, since people in the street thought I was loony - which added a weird expression on my face!
and 3- only 2 members on this forum know what I look like, and this would be a terrible introduction! LOL

Love the self portrait avoidance sir!

Very cool shot - well done!

I tried to get something similar in Venice last year but it sooo didn't work as well as this.

OK! This is me!!

Ok. I give in. After almost 9 months of a face-less 'fa1sal', here is me!

I would've loved to do a better job on composing this - but the mirror was too dirty anyway, so I didn't bother. You can also notice the 'shy' position of the cam - as I didn't want anyone to think I was crazy!

Also attaching some 'normal' photos of me - to prove that it was in fact the mirror perspective that made me look like that! LOL

One in the national official dress (taken by a semi-professional for a company newsletter!) and the other was snapped with a child actor who starred in my latest TV commercial.
