First of all: thanks for all the great comments on yesterday's shot – as always, they're much appreciated.

As for today ...

I had nothing to put up tonight, and couldn't face night photography in the rain, so ransacked my office for something to photograph, and found these: two glass paperweights that I brought back from my trip to China last year. They're both about two and a half inches high and about three quarters of an inch thick, and there's a translucent portrait of Chairman Mao in the middle of both.

Anyway, I sandwiched them together, their edges overlapped. The net result is that you can see the images through the paperweights, interspersed with the same images reflected on the back face. If nothing else, it was fun to set up – it's been a while since I did any (pseudo) studio work.
