When I was a little girl, my sweetest elderly neighbour, Mrs. Bar, had the most amazing collection of old style fairy tale books.

She would often let me look at the pictures, as I was to young to read. She often read me stories, if I wasn't well.

One of the stories I rememnered, but heve been able to find the book again. I think it was called 'Harlequin Magic'.

It was all about a tiny harlequin who wanted to be big like all the other Harlequins. It reminded me of myself when I was a child, as I often wished I was tall like my siblings.

I hope you like my Fantasia image of a Harlequin, in its own little world of fantasy, glitter, baubbles, magic, and dreams.

I have called this one, "Mirror, Mirror on the Wall, Please, please make me Tall".

Shez, I'm not sure the connection to fairy tales came through without your comments, so thanks for explaining it! It's a very well-done shot of a toy, though. I could imagine it on the program for a puppet show, for example.

I love all the colors and items of interest in the shot. I will also say that the same things that are fun and excellent also detract from the major focus. A nice shot that can seem a bit cluttered. Still nice job!

this photo seems a little too busy for me, I think there is too many things too look at, its hard to notice the reflection.
