Icy Convex Mirror

An entry for 

Was hesitant to scrape/chop the ice off my postal truck's convex mirror for fear I'd crack it! But it made for some interesting abstracts:


My favorite.




Above, you can see my hand holding the camera

The ice was melting away at this point.

Happy February♥

We don't have snow here...but I do understand your fear of breaking it.

I love that first shot!

Pride In Photos said...

Yes I agree with all the others...very very creative thinking. One time when I lived up north, I tried scrapping the windshield for it to crack all the way across. Not a good day.♥

I love all the colors in the first one and the subtleness of the second!
Makes me wish I didn't park in a garage - almost. :)
I'm glad you grabbed your camera - lovely captures!

What can I say that hasn't been said? These are very 'cool' shots no matter how you look at them.

Neat! Brings back lots of memories!

Cipriano said...

That's really neat. The first picture looks like a stained-glass piece! Next time it's icy like that around here [and opportunity abounds!] -- I'm going to try a similar ice-pic.
Hah! Get it? Ice pick?

The natural painted landscape when winter asserts its artistic prerogative.
