In every ball is a mini me.

The ever patient (I wish) Roger  waiting for my photography session to be over. The creature I was trying to capture is barely visible whilst our reflections  show up clearly.

The double reflection is like going to Coney Island to the curved mirror section where you may find yourself normal, distorted, fat or thin. This car captured two different visions of me.

The poles were tall. In he reflection the poles looked just as tall. The water was no more than a few millimetres deep.

Another type of reflection is found in peoples memoirs. In this memoir I reflect on the time my husband and I lived on a remote island in the pacific, partners with the paramount Chief in a small resort and tour business. As we negotiated our way through the culture dealing with villagers, chiefs and witchdoctors we discovered the volcano was not the only thing to explode.

Thank you Patti for this weeks prompt  I wish all Lens-Artists a very Happy Holiday Season and may it bring oodles of opportunities for finding that perfect shot.

About Irene Waters 19 Writer Memoirist

I began my working career as a reluctant potato peeler whilst waiting to commence my training as a student nurse. On completion I worked mainly in intensive care/coronary care; finishing my hospital career as clinical nurse educator in intensive care. A life changing period as a resort owner/manager on the island of Tanna in Vanuatu was followed by recovery time as a farmer at Bucca Wauka. Having discovered I was no farmer and vowing never again to own an animal bigger than myself I took on the Barrington General Store. Here we also ran a five star restaurant. Working the shop of a day 7am - 6pm followed by the restaurant until late was surprisingly more stressful than Tanna. On the sale we decided to retire and renovate our house with the help of a builder friend. Now believing we knew everything about building we set to constructing our own house. Just finished a coal mine decided to set up in our backyard. Definitely time to retire we moved to Queensland. I had been writing a manuscript for some time. In the desire to complete this I enrolled in a post grad certificate in creative Industries which I completed 2013. I followed this by doing a Master of Arts by research graduating in 2017. Now I live to write and write to live.

  1. Wow, all kinds of reflections. Yes, Roger is very patient so you got all the photos taken. The mini balls idea is very clever. Your book is a true reflection of them all. ❤
