Look in a Mirror

"Look in a mirror and one thing’s sure; what we see is not who we are"
~ Richard Bach


"The moment always dictates in my work. What I feel, I do. This is the most important thing for me. Everybody can look, but they don't necessarily see. I never calculate or consider; I see a situation and I know that it's right, even if I have to go back to get the proper lighting."
~ Andre Kertesz

flyingwind风飞扬 from Bridgetown, Barbados

So many elements and imaginations in it! Seagull and its reflection as a whole part just looks like a big open mouth but without teeth!!! What's that nearby? It might be the light reflection of a boat underthe sunshine...Whatever it is, I think it's a toothbrush!!!
First look at it , only black and white , however after second third view, Tooooooooooo coooooooooool!!!
