As I grow older… (reprised)

I posted this image in November last year, linked to a poem that @19syllables had sent me. I was never very happy with the original image; it would have been better if I’d been naked, my camera battery died before I had a shot I was happy with and the edit is a bit boring. Also, why would you take a photo for Haiku in an Ikea mirror when you have your Granny’s beautiful antique hand mirror?

This time round I wanted to draw out the reflective nature of the poem by having a double reflection in my image. I put the light behind me so that one of the reflections was bleached and a bit ghostly. I still want to play around with mirrors a bit more in some future photography, but I am happier with this image.

Beehive

This huge sensory installation at Kew is modelled on a beehive with the pace of sound and light responding to activity in a real nearby beehive. There were a few too many people around on a hot August day to take any truly sinful photos, but I would love to return first thing in the morning and get some more adventurous shots!
