Posted by switch at April 14, 2004 01:35 AM

Is this the first time we have seen a photo of you taking a photo? =) Great shot!

Posted by Jinky at April 14, 2004 01:43 AM

Oh no, I thought a beautifull lady was taking the pictures...

Posted by Tatou at April 14, 2004 07:43 AM

doing a mirror image on this mirror image would've been neat.

Posted by qOJ at April 14, 2004 07:54 AM

Nice to see you ;)

Posted by Poopak at April 14, 2004 08:48 AM

Man, that's some spherical aberration problem you got in your lens there! And I've always wanted to see what you look like...

i tried to take picture in a barnes and noble once...they asked me to leave and tried to confiscate my film

Posted by chris. at April 14, 2004 09:35 AM

Great shot! :)

Posted by Lynn R at April 14, 2004 10:11 AM

i've never really been fond of pictures with the photographer in them.....just not very classy.

Posted by wormy at April 14, 2004 11:14 AM

I love how you can see the detail on the mirror. It seems like this is just placed on the webpage. I like it!!

Posted by brenda at April 14, 2004 11:34 AM

I looks as if you are trying to take my picture through the web. Great site and awsome picture!!!

Posted by Toni at April 14, 2004 11:49 AM

lol awesome sam!

Posted by sigma at April 14, 2004 12:03 PM

Buy a proper fish-eye lens! You aren't that poor are you? ;)

Posted by Sunny at April 14, 2004 12:22 PM

Great shot. For those of you with negative comments about the lens, the mirror is curved not flat..and it looks better this way anyways

Posted by hoosh at April 14, 2004 12:34 PM

Hi Sam, Nice to meet you behind this mirror.It's pleasant to see you in action.As Tony said, I'm wondering you are shoting me too. Surprising and Great shot!

Posted by Quitou at April 14, 2004 12:46 PM

Nice stuff Sam, great use of the environment... you saved yourself the price of a fish-eye lens ;)
I'm suprised that you didn't flip the image so it's the "right way around"

Posted by Lorin Halpert at April 14, 2004 02:25 PM

Woohoo, we get to see you! I'm going to keep an eye out for you; I live in the area you tend to photograph a lot. :-)

Posted by ecila at April 14, 2004 08:34 PM

It's actually owned by Chapters now.

Posted by Bob Gundu at April 14, 2004 10:34 PM

To "hoosh":

There was no "negative" comments about his lens, we were just joking about it!

Posted by Sunny at April 14, 2004 10:59 PM

I have no idea why, but this reminds me of a Herge drawing.

Posted by legofish at April 15, 2004 01:07 AM

:)) Funny and colorfull :) Good!

This is one of your strongest photos in the website in my opinion. The power of directly viewing into the audience stirs up a very strange feeling. Last year I remember a classmate made a film about himself filming himselfwith a super8 camera. He filmed it in different focal lengths and shot different parts of the mirror, and also got his friends to stand and lean beside him. It was a very mesmerizing site, yesterday night I was talking to my friends about that short film, and today I check this photo! Synchronicity. I think you should disregard any of the negative comments about this photo. To me it is powerful. You should start doing some interesting self portraits like this one more often. They are powerful photos. This photo feels like the mirror is an object of worship. It kind if also feels like Hal in 2001: Space Odessy.

Keep up the excelent work.

Posted by jay at April 19, 2004 12:33 PM

@ Chris: Last week in Indigo at Bay & Bloor: 'Sir, I have to ask you to put away your camera, or I'll have to remove the film'. Sir: 'That would be interesting!'. Long live digital ;-)

Great site!

Posted by Bianca at April 21, 2004 01:15 AM
