This is not the picture I thought I was going to take. I thought I was going to place my camera outside, set the timer, and then quickly run inside to pose through the window. That seemed a lot more fun before I looked at the thermostat.
Inside, looking out the window, the blue sky and bright sun juxtaposed against the snow. My weather app taunted me . . . minus one degree! A flash struck my eye; refracting sun through a crystal prism hanging from my window latch. Curious, I held it in front of my camera lens and clicked. I was left with this eerie image, reminiscent of the many facets of the self.
One may understand the cosmos, but never the ego; the self is more distant than any star.

Nothing like an accident that turns out great! Love th shot.
I really thought it would just be one big blur.
I do believe that this is my favorite selfie so far! I love it!
No way! Thank you so much! You made my day and it’s not even 6:00 a.m…
You are welcome! And I hope your whole day was special! 🙂
It has worked out very well indeed! Very original!
Very cool…we all have several sides to our personality. We present each one according to the situation in which we find ourselves. Sometimes we even present several at once. Again…very, very cool.
Thank you! It was really just an experiment, and turned out fun.
Really cool one:)
Thanks! It was a fun post!
A well composed, accidental photograph. Well done. The image you unintentionally captured relates well to the make up of a modern day person whose psychological self is made up of many facets all vying for expression. Bravo!
I thank you for the eloquent review! You flatter me, Sir!
