The hand carving in this piece is really marvelous. It is perfect for monochrome.

A very creative composition. The off-centre mirror gave a fine depth.

What marvelous carving, so detailed.

That the dragon is encircling books gives the idea that it is protecting wisdom - especially because its expression is both fierce and benign. I like too that the dragon is exotic but the image domestic. A nice blend.

Wonderful shot with shadow - are 'dragons' descended from the dinosaur, I wonder. I was just at the Natural History Museum with the grandchildren. one of whom bought a a very flamboyant, dragon-like dinosaur!

An amazing mirror, beautiful detail. In the photo I like the reflection of the books - and the shadow on the wall.

Oh neat. I don't think I would like it hanging in my room. It's a little to spooky for me. But it does look really great in black and white. I like that it is a round mirror.

Tash said...

That is truly impressive!!
You are a star of dragon photos. :)
I really like it in B&W - makes the viewer focus purely on the subject.
