I’m used to living with doubles: I’m a Gemini in the zodiac; have double nationality; without spectacles, I see an unfocused, double version of the world; and I’m a generalist, who welcomes diverse views. So, with today’s Photo101 assignment, I’m in my element: “You and your camera are seeing double”. Hopefully with focus.
I decided not to venture outside as it’s a gray and chilly day. Instead, I snapped three inside shots.
1. Couple Kiss’s sculpture – I played with the outside natural light reflecting on one side of the sculpture – showing its silver color -, and the chandelier light on the other – making it look golden.
2. Ficus Bonsai Tree – This tree is very special, as it has been around 10 years with me. I love its double legs-roots; everyone sees it as a woman sitting, very relaxed on the vase.
3. Porcelain of Chinese Ladies – The most difficult to capture as the white marble didn’t offer much contrast to the off-white porcelain, as well as because of the shadows. I used PicMonkey to blur the edges and make it B&W.
