The Art of Looking

It's a complicated self portrait.. A blast of light that turned a fairly dark tan wall into a projection screen caught my eye as I walked by. A wall mounted mirror in the bathroom to the right of this scene was positioned perfectly to reflect the setting sun coming through a window. The mirror then threw the light onto the wall in the bedroom. I rushed to the camera and this is what it captured - straight out of camera. You can see my hand/arm with elbow bent holding the camera to the left of the shot.


After noting the time of day, the next day I watched for this to happen again. But the sun's change in angle over just a day's time meant this was a once a year moment.


Remind's me of Ruth Bernhard's doorknob shot. Well, the circumstance, not the photo. :-)
