Mirror mirror

mirror.jpgWell so much for my plan to do better here today. Shall I fob you off with another photo? Why not? But this time it's one that I think works better if it is smaller than my usual size (the one that hardly fits on the screen), miniature even. Hope you like it.

I took it last Monday at a dinner party. The dinner party was good, but this photo makes it look better even than it was. I like that. That is what photographers are for, to make reality better than it ever was. Or scarier, or more significant, or more ugly, or more … more. Am I perhaps becoming one of these creatures?
