That is one cool photo...Funny, you call your grandaughter Tay and one (of about 12) nicknames for my only boy is Tay-Boy..

She is a cutie and your photographers eye is magical!!

Georgina Dollface said...

THAT is an award winning shot! I love it! - G

Oilfield Trash said...

I really like that photo.

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

That's really cool - draws the eye at once to the center of the circle.

Jenny said...

I love this. What cool imagery. Next time you should have her hold a hand mirror and then her image will go on into infinity. Or something like that.

It made more sense inside my head. Now that I wrote it, it's dumb, but my delete key is broken again...sigh....

What a COOL mirror! And that girl looks eerily like my daughter. Thanks for sharing, and have a fantastic weekend!

Brian said...

That is one awesome photo! Have a great weekend Pat!!!

Talli Roland said...

Gabriela Abalo said...

Sylvia K said...

Tracy said...

Pat,
What a cool cool photo...I was trying to take it apart visually and it's difficult. Very CLEVER!!!

Carmi said...

This is the kind of picture that she will hold onto well into adulthood, one that will cement how she always sees you and your relationship.

It isn't just great photography - Lord knows I could spend the entire day writing about what makes this particular picture frameworthy. Rather, it's about using photography as a catalyst for a better life. And on that front, gifted as you are behind the lens, you are truly unique.

I'm just going to watch and learn, if that's OK with you!

James said...

Very cool shot and it looks great in black and white. I forgot about ZGallery it's been about 10 or 15yrs since I went in one and at least 5yrs since I've seen one.

Pat Tillett said...

Lynne - that's funny! She also has a lot of nicknames. Just "T" is the most heard...Thanks Lynne!

Georgina - Why thank you! I would have liked to get her centered and in all the little mirrors, but I couldn't find a way to stay out of the shot!


Oilfield Trash - Thanks so much! I appreciate it.

Alex - Yeah, and it almost looks like the middle is just a hole and not a mirror! thanks Alex.

Jenny - No, you made perfect sense, OR...if there was a mirror behind me and I could have used the timer. Thanks Jenny!

Nicole - It sure was, I wish I owned it! You have a great weekend also...

Brian - Thanks Brian! You too!

Thanks!

tapirgal - so much, maybe too much! Thanks!

baygirl - thank you so much!

Gine - Merci ! Il a l'air du soleil à moi.

Lucy Corrander said...

In itself more like a painting than a photograph.

I usually find such multiple-image-by-mirrors disconcerting but the circle and the angles make this friendly.

I too like it that the only human is to the side.

Lucy

Pat Tillett said...

Jhon - thanks Jhon! It would be the first! I need to get with the program.

Serendipity - Thank you! Also, thanks for stopping by and commenting.

Robyn - Wow! That's how I feel most of the time! thanks so much Robyn...

Sally - Thanks so much! I appreciate your comment!

Chuck - Thanks buddy! She really likes it!

Steadfast - Thanks so much Rosemary!

Lucy - I wish I could paint like that. Heck, I wish I could paint at all... Thanks Lucy!

Tracy said...

I just wanted to tell you that I liked the quote you put on Betty's blog that talked of how you are never really gone unless no one remembers you...or something to that affect, but very powerful! I like it!
