BONUS: For Street Photography Fans!

The only thing that makes this more than the original work, spotted in the Pièce Unique gallery in Paris, is two things, or three if you like.

First the fortuitous blue reflections over the eyes of the girl on the right. I don't know how they got there or even what they are but there they are and all the better for it if you ask me.

The second thing is the gorgeous grain. No, in fact it's not gorgeous if you look closely, it's horrendous jpeg interference but from a distance it's not too bad, and All My Own Work.

And finally is the fact that I experienced the original, imagined by the artist perhaps looking at these girls looking at him. I then recorded it and sent it out in another form and now here you are contemplating it in your turn.

Who are these girls? Is it a mirror reflection? Are they the same person? What was the artist trying to say, if any more than that he or she could paint a beautiful picture? And yet there's something strange, almost disturbing about it too, I don't know, nothing evil or sinister, just... disquieting. Maybe it's that direct double gazing that gets me. And they're huge - wall-sized, maybe that's it too. Or maybe it's their little button noses and rosebud lips - almost too perfect for their own good. Naughty little girls!

And why not...
