meh... sort of an odd picture.
Is this the first time we have seen a photo of you taking a photo? =) Great shot!
Oh no, I thought a beautifull lady was taking the pictures...
"Third Person Omniscient" changed into First person point of view! Exciting to see you in there.
You should also post to 'the mirror project'
hey..there you are!!
belakhr marde poshte dorbinam didam...nice to meet you!
If would have been even funnier if there had been somebody in the shot looking at you funny...He's photographing what?
Oh !!! This is you !!! Hello ! :D
doing a mirror image on this mirror image would've been neat.
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
i've never really been fond of pictures with the photographer in them.....just not very classy.
I love how you can see the detail on the mirror. It seems like this is just placed on the webpage. I like it!!
I looks as if you are trying to take my picture through the web. Great site and awsome picture!!!
Buy a proper fish-eye lens! You aren't that poor are you? ;)
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
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!
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"
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. :-)
Heh. Good to see the artist behind the art. Good Work
Sam is hanging out in the computer geek section of the store... ROCK ON... By far they have the best selection in the city.
HAhaha! I see you have lost more hair, dude! just like me.
see! just ila's comment does it for me ! you are a good commentist man ;)
-sam does this post break the comments record ?
omg i LOVE that bookstore! i can't believe it's still down there.... my dad used to take me to that bookstore when i little, but it's been yeaaaaaaaars since i've been down there, i thought it would have closed at the sight for all the Indigos, and Chapters, yet alas! you're set my soul at rest! lol, i like the picture :) good to see a bit more of the guy behind the camera :D lol
It's actually owned by Chapters now.
There was no "negative" comments about his lens, we were just joking about it!
I have no idea why, but this reminds me of a Herge drawing.
:)) 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.
1.i can see you!!! first time...
2.nice circle idea!!!
So many books so little time! Nice
Haha! I used to own that exact same coat.
you've got the same coat as I have.
@ 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 ;-)
hi, how did you select just the round mirror bor this (silly question maybe sorry but i'm new at it and curious)
This picture nailed me for a while,because the shop used to be just a part of my life when I stayed in Toronto... I really like this kind of view of photographing!Thanks
