Look into my eye(s).....!!

A while back at the 'Outskirts' festival my incredibly talented niece Jessica who not only did a lot of the organization for the festival but also had a stall selling her hand made 'fascinators' (small feathery creations to wear in the hair to the races, weddings etc.). Jessica asked me if I would take some shots of Aimee wearing the fascinator that she had bought on the day, to put on her website. We combined it with photos for Aimee's blog and it was only when I downloaded them that I noticed in the close ups I took to show Aimee's new eye make up, the reflections of moi and my camera leaning right in to take the shot!! Unexpected reflections can be such a bonus, hope you have a great weekend.....

  2. Very cool! And a very beautiful girl. Love the reflections. I think someone had her eye on you!

    I read today about a fellow who got bit by a shark not far from Perth. A rarity, the article said.

  18. You should take a look at Jack's Hartford, Connecticut, Daily Photo shot today. The artist featured in his post could take your photo and put it to good use.

  23. great image. such a treat for you to get a surprise with your image. and i agree with your comments about Egypt. Everyone should go and experience it at least once. the history and architecture of the pyramids and Sphinx and at Abu Simbel are truly unique feelings and experience about what people accomplished so long ago

  24. I love it! I think little photo surprises are the best. She's pretty cute too!

  25. A very creative and unexpected reflection for sure. I like the shade of her hair. I wonder if it would look good on me. :)

  26. Il existe des yeux vraiment fascinants. De près, souvent, ils parlent. Et ne mentent jamais.
    Joyeux week-end, Gracie!

    ReplyDelete
  27. It's just been decreed that fascinators are no longer allowed in the Royal Enclosure: they frighten the horses! Hats are still permitted. (And to think, a year ago, we didn't know what a fascinator was :-)

    Er... did you see that Picnik is stopping? :-(
