This week I want to see something that reflects your photography - an object that is either a reflection, or, as in the example below, the original object and its reflection. So, plenty of scope for your imagination to run wild. Yeah, I know, a bit of an over-enthusiastic thought, but at least you get to reflect on what you are doing.Smile

The simple rules:

1. The challenge is just for fun
2. IMAGES MUST BE TAKEN AFTER THE THEME IS ANNOUNCED.
3. Only one upload per member, uploaded in this thread.
4. If you win, you host the next week’s challenge - see note below.

NOTE
Hosting involves starting a new challenge thread (with or without an example image - your choice) - and coming back at the end of the week to choose a winner.

"Mirror, mirror on the wall, who's the fairest of them all?"

That question always invites disappointment! 😱😄

Humour like this deserves a drum-roll - or maybe be just a clash on the thimbles.

The weekend is upon us and you have to forget everything to do with xmas preparations and present buying, the challenge here is bigger and more important than what to buy for the wife/hubby/girlfriend/boyfriend/mistress.

Bauble Trouble

Okay two sins for the price of one. Not only have I probably become the first offender to upload a Christmas type image this year but there is also a selfie in there.

I had to do it though. Smile

Camera in mirror in a mirror - the little square mirror is actually off to the right of the image, and the camera was pointing nowhere near it. Spooky!

Time's up.
I'll get straight down to the comments, judging and verdict. I am also reminded that as it is soon Christmas, that means it won't be long until the ESC (Eurovision Song thingy) so in true European style, here are the votes of the Norwegian jury. You'll be pleased to hear that no-one got null points.
So.
CB: (is your surname Radio?). I can't hold a candle or a fork handle to that image. Immaculate reflection.

Eddie: aka Santa's (not so) little helper in this case by the look of it. Good to see your baubles. Or one of them, at least.

Andrew: Is that square mirror the one that tells you you are not the fairest in the land?Wink See CB's YouTube vid. Excellent reflected deception, I must say.

And so to the winner of this week's wee challenge.
Despite the awful 60's hairstyles and almost equally awful lyrics, I hereby announce Mr Radio (aka CB) to be elected as the reigning champion for this week, at least...almost as quick a turnover as the Tories...

Well done that mna, and indeed all of you men.

The baton and the honour go to the man with the small candlestick 😉

Many thanks Malc for this week and Well done to CB!!

Well done CB (or, picking up on Malc's question, Breaker, Breaker, 1-9 if you are of a certain vintage). And thanks Malc a) for the challenge b) not picking me for next week.
