    ...a rather unpleasant shriek of horror. icon_lol.gif


    Actually I say nothing. The mirror cracks.

    What do you say when you look at yourself in the mirror?

    I marvel that the guy looking back at me is from about 15 years ago, and not in bad shape yet. And I wonder why my photographs tell a different story, of age & being overweight? I've concluded the mirror involves some kind of psychological shift in reality, not unlike what anorexia nervosa victims report. A skin & bones person looks into the mirror, and they see a person who's fat. How can that be?

    A story (I'm gonna hafta assemble and publish these things): One evening my late partner & I were going out, and I wanted a wristwatch to compliment my other accessories. He had the perfect match, and I asked if I could borrow it, to which he of course agreed.

    But when I tried to fasten the wrist band, it was too small. So I asked him, Tom, have you worn this watch recently? Yes, he replied.

    Well, I KNEW his wrist was much bigger than mine, so I asked him to put it on. It fit him perfectly. I tried it on myself again, and it remained too small. I made him go back & forth like this several times, I was so flustered.

    Finally I said let me see your wrist, and placed it next to mine. His was clearly bigger than mine. I said to him doesn't your wrist look bigger than mine? No, he replied. WHAT???

    How could the evidence of my own eyes be so wrong? I had learned an important lesson about how our minds alter reality. We really can't always trust our eyes, because vision gets filtered through our emotions, and preconceptions, and however else our minds jumble things.

    And so I've learned not to trust mirrors -- they lie. Or at least my own mind does, about what I see there.

    So basically you're saying that you're fatter and older than you think you are. icon_lol.gif

    As a fellow photographer, you should know the answer to this: Your eyes are just the lens. They do not process light, they only bend it. The processing takes place elsewhere (film, CCD, brain). The processing center is what gives you the final image; and you well know, processing centers are not always calibrated to produce an exact replica of what the lens "sees." icon_wink.gif

    Why didn't you drag your sorry ass out of bed this morning and go for a run? Why did you gorge on that huge plate of nachos last night?

    Overweight, 5'3 receiding hairline, overlapping teeth with a big nose and wrinkles on my forehead. Oh god, time to go back and hide in the darkness so at least when I'm old my skin won't be ruined from sunlight.

    Beneim: Don't get down on yourself. You're cute. I've always thought that, and probably so does everyone else.


    As for me: Reasonably OK with what I see, but always see stuff I don't like. . . tighter abs, bigger arms, chest. . . probably the way most of us feel
