Reflected images.


Mirrors should think longer before they reflect.
- Jean Cocteau

Great, I like it very much. By catching the reflection of the fish from the advertisement on the water you've actually managed to put the fish in the water. Lovely idea as always, mirrors really should think longer :)

glad you like the image :) the fish is free again, in the river :D the mirror did a good thing, without knowing (or thinking) :D i like the idea of mirrors with thoughts and ideas, mirrors as personas.

Jean Cocteau liked mirrors. You should check out "Orphée", his movie from 1950. It's one of my favorites, a true surrealist masterpiece.

Gosh, I want to see that movie for ages now... Will see if I find it here, they have a 'videotheque' here. Thanks for making me think of it!!

I am looking forward for your "quoted image,imaged quotes" with the theme of "love"~
It is a wonderful feeling...
I am curious how you manifest the topic!
~cheers~

Luisa Santos said...

Hi Lily! Thanks!! :) we don't have a plan of themes so far but it certainly is a good idea :) Love is quite difficult to express through words and images, maybe because it's such a strong concept/feeling.

Hi Lily, thanks for the idea!

Brilliant quote, and brilliant association quote/image...

Thanks Cécile.
I was amazed when Luisa posted her photo answer, how she visually "unpacked" the quote in a both beautiful and intelligent way. This sure is one of my favorite posts on this blog!
