Shiny things mesmerize me, like jewelry and reflections and the sun. On this sunny day, I stared into an antique jewelry shop window on Royal street with my trusty digital camera dangling on a strap around my neck. Then suddenly, right before beginning to drool idiotically, I saw the reflections in reflections. I lifted my camera to capture the magical moment. It was like shining a mirror into a mirror and trying to preserve this moment without putting myself into the image. I hate when I later study a picture only to find myself with my camera held up in some distant part of the reflection. But, this day was made for reflections and introspections. Framing both sides of Royal Street in one shot was like taking in the entire ambiance of shopping in the French Quarter on a sunny Saturday afternoon.
