"You can't see the world through a mirror." Avril Lavigne





For Mother's Day we went for lunch at Sydney's QT and I noticed reflections everywhere!

I loved the art reflected and the endless lights, stretching on to eternity.

As one who is not such a fan of my image in a mirror, I was quite delighted at the joy I got capturing reflections. It's not the mirror that's the problem, it's what my brain does with the image it sees. As I've discussed, that's something that needs working on.



While trying to find a theme for this post, I came across this quote by Pearl Bailey. "We look into mirrors but we only see the effects of our times on us - not our effects on others." For those that struggle with mirrors, maybe we need to remind ourselves that the mirror only reflects us, not the great world around us and the people in need that we can help - be it friends, family or strangers abroad. Maybe that's where the real meaning of life and happiness lies.

If you wish to help the people of Hawaii, donate to the disaster relief here. You can choose to direct your donation to those affected by the floods on Oahu or Kauai, or those people evacuated on the Big Island. I've no affiliation with these people, I just really loved the people of Hawaii & their spirit of aloha.

  8. That is really pretty! I'm obsessed with lights! When it rains, at stop lights I take photos of the rain hitting the windshield. If it's dark, and there's lots of lights it's really pretty!

  9. Light filtering in and reflecting looks great. I like the quote and how nice it would be to know the effect on others over time with our reflection. I would hope we all reflect well on others with kindness and love. Thanks for sharing at Pictorial Tuesday.

    1. My understanding is that they were started independently of each other and for different reasons. Thus the days choosen were unaware of it being done elsewhere.
