But we all with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord are changed into the same image from glory to glory even as by the spirit of the Lord. II Corinthians 3: 18

Definition below From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

"Spectrophobia (from Latin: spectrum, "ghost") is a kind of specific phobia involving a morbid fear of mirrors and one's own reflections. "

I decided I liked this entry better than my previous entry so replaced it. Thank you to those who commented on my other effort...I did this self portrait on Oct. 31, 2009 and I was experimenting for the daily diary series but didn't use it at that time. It is interesting to find the many different kinds of phobias that I didn't know existed and we are getting our education as we post pictures.

    Thank you for your comments...I took the other entry I originally posted out as I was not crazy about the washed out lighting in the background and was happy
    to find a phobia listed to fit this picture for the category.
