For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face... I Corinthians 13: 12

I shot this self portrait in a mirror and turned the photo around horizontally in photo shop so that (Nikon) wouldn't be spelled backwards. Then resized the same picture and layered it to fit inside the monitor back side flap of the camera. The "Droste effect" of a picture within a picture was fun to do and enjoyed the challenge.

Thank you Saroj Swain for nominating this picture, 12/29/2015! Very appreciated!!!
Thank you Ioana Caravan for the kind courtesy of your spotlight on 10/30/2016
