I didn't really know what to do for this but thought that some distortion would help disguise me. It wasn't easy to do this, and I could only do it with the help of the flip out screen on my little canon. It didn't want to focus on the shoehorn reflection though. I'm wearing a scarf - no dark hair, no red hair - and I'm wearing pretty heavy makeup (for me, anyway).

Not sure that does you any favors... ;-p Cute idea, well executed. Are you sure you didn't intend this for the Reflections without Mirrors challenge?

funny like the title, love the reflection of the trees in the shoehorn, looks like a painting, great imagination to think of this in my opinion.
