shaving shadows

Our bathroom is in the process of being renovated and we don't have a mirror in there right now so Jerzy keeps his shaving things in a plastic container on the kitchen table and shaves with a small mirror propped on the shelf over our kitchen sink. When I pass that container at certain times of the day I am halted by the wonderful reflections caused by the sun passing through the window, through those shaving items, and through the plastic container. There is a scientific term for this but it's not coming to me right now. Voila! Art and inspiration!

Something so simple and yet you have created facets of beauty. Each one an abstract work of art.

jo...I think that may be my special superpower :)

robyn...yes, it is the simplicity that I love and the abstract nature of the images.

poetic artist...so nice to see you here. I am behind in my comments and in visiting other blogs but slowly I am re-engaging. I look forward to seeing you on yours.

jeane...thanks! It's my joy...

mansuetude...I thought you'd like these. The subtle, the blue, and the blurry.

megan...thanks!

lynne...there is a certain watery aquatic feeling to these images.
