Through My Wife's Eyes


During the brief very sunny period recently my wife acquired a pair of sunglasses of the type that fit over the top of your ordinary pair of spectacles.

Time, I thought, for an experiment that I've seen other photographers do in the past.

So here is a view of the Market Place with the entrance to Clarendon Mall and the Jolly Carter pub opposite.

It is a photo of the reflection in her sunglasses, post processed to turn it back again from the mirror image.

You'll find a similar experimental photo, with less post-processing, on Ackworth born, gone West in celebration of our 35th wedding anniversary.

It was fun to maximize the photo to see the amazing clarity and details of the reflective images: red car and woman with yellow and blue shopping bags on the right side of the photo. Great job.

You lost me at the post production but for me the idea of taking the image in the fist place I get. Perhaps it's the glasses but it is very sharp.

Congratulations to you and Christine....
Jane and I are now in our 23 year together, and it just gets better each year. Unlike you Gerald we never married, and are very happy as we are.

Very nice, Gerald. I love shots such as this. I see a whole new advertising slogan coming up for sunglasses.

Great Picture....
Like the idea/theme behind this picture.. It says so much.
Its very few men who see or even try to see the world around through their wife's eyes...
You should be a caring person.... :-)
