Nothing says infinite more than the old mirror in the mirror illusion.
When I was a child, I would go “up town” to Hess’s Department Store. It was one of those old fashioned stores with a different department on every floor. This store had a basement restaurant that was elegant and rivaled other department stores like Macy’s in NYC. The store was 5 stories plus basement. It had escalators, elevators, staircases, and revolving doors. It was one of my favorite places to go. It was like a carnival funhouse for grownups.
The best spot in the store was the staircase. There were mirrors on all the walls so when you traveled the staircase, you could see yourself forever. It’s a great optical illusion that I’ll never be able to completely understand but will forever appreciate.
For this week’s photo challenge, I tried to recreate the mirror illusion here on the ship with tiny mirrors. It doesn’t come close to those awesome staircase mirrors of childhood memory, but it was a fun photo challenge anyway.
Besides. What else can a girl do on a lazy Sunday afternoon in the Congo? 😀
