I really like this, especially the reverse leading lines. Love the inspiration! Thank you for sharing, S-

Really neat Martha. It's one of those every day things that we don't usually notice. Nice shot. :)

Thanks! I was sitting there for quite a while before I noticed. Wished I had a camera. Then realized I could use my phone, duh. By the time I got it out to take the shot, the queue began to move, so I didn't have the time I would have liked to try different angles. Next time I go, I will take a real camera.

I like it. It has a slightly dizzying effect when viewing it for a while though.

Caution: Object next to the mirror are closer that they appear. :)

Imho, you did very well for the time you had to work it.

I like it! All lines converge at the slight bend in the mirror - very cool.

A convergence within a convergence, what a neat shot! Well spotted. Thanks for reminding us how an everyday moment can be transformed into a fascinating image when we have the eyes to see it.
