I found this mirror on one of my explorations and unfortunately, right after I took this photo it dropped and smashed.

Fantastic shot - the processing works really well to give it a very interesting feel. Really suggests a story behind the image.

Beautifully done Scott. Very mysterious and evokes one to study the image for a long time.

BTW, the mirror looks like the type that attaches to a car side mirror and can be found in any auto parts store.

Thank you all very much. This was pretty much a spur of the moment shot.

Thank you! It was one of those mirrors. I found a second at another abandoned place but it was scratched so I left it there.
