self-portrait experiment

The following photographs were shot while walking by a clothing store.  I was attempting to capture my reflection superimposed on the mannequins.  It appears to have worked.  The ones below came out especially interesting.

This one is like that drawing of the young woman, I mean the old woman, I mean the young woman.  You can either look through the window or at the reflection.  A good long stare might meld them together.  I like the way my camera became an extension of my arm and the tree an extension of my head.

This one cracked me up.  Blending the two is not difficult here.  I am clearly wearing a skirt.  If you can rip your eyes away from my geek physique you can transfer the skirt to its rightful owner.

There is a lot going on here.  Freud would say most of it is about my childhood (and my mother).  I’ll let you figure out the details. ; )
