The Ixus v3 was a present in early 2002.
At Christmas we had more digital camera in the family so had a little challenge to try and take good images.
This image was taken on Boxing Day, 26th Dec 2002, one of my first attempts at anything other than snaps. My son had the Action man for Xmas so it seemed fitting..

"Window to the Soul" was personally one of my favorites into the Best of 2002 challenge. Something about this piece just grabbed my attention, I am really surprised it didn't to better. But I guess everyone has very different opinions about what is appealing.

The reflection is awesome, I think you had a wonderful concept. I like how the reflection is what is staring at us the viewer. The composition is great and has a nice background in contrast to the orange suit. Maybe voters just had a hard time with the piece because it was a toy and we had the Playtime and Children's Toy just about at the same time. Technically I think this is a great piece and personally I really like your work. I look forward to your future entries.

Normaly I don't like shots of toys but this somehow works.

Plastic toys generally don't do it for me.
