Funhouse mirror

This is one of the huge, mirrored supporting pillars inside The Podium mall in Ortigas Center. They make for such crazily fun reflections, young children immediately run to them when they enter the mall.

How did you manage to capture this without being in the picture...or is that you in the yellow dress?

bfarr said...

That does create fun reflections. I have to admit, I would be running with the kids.

Very nice. I clicked the photo to enlarge :) Nakita kita, naka yellow dress and light brown bag with your hubby na nakatingin sayo :)

Paula said...

What a fun idea. It's so bright and colorful!

Jacob said...

Oh boy, this is wonderful! The builders of that mall knew exactly what they were doing - get the kids in and the parents will come (with their money)! I love it, too, though.

Ken Mac said...

and you've captured it so well! Excellent

This is like a magical mirror. I like the bright colours reflected on the mirror. I'll be fun if I can turn or spin it around to observe the colourful moving images.

Oh, this looks like fun! I'm sure there are people who purposely walk by this to get a look at themselves ;-D

This is the one that contorts the face right? it also makes contorted face look perfect lol.

p.s. More money is needed for winter preparation of koi ponds...I don't think too that the government is willing to do that anyway...but hopefully they'd do something to make it appear nicer

VP said...

The kids are right, this is funny and an awesome reflection!

These mirrors are indeed fun. Great that they have one inside for all to enjoy. Have you been to any plays/ performances lately? I miss all the colorful lighting and costumes you are so famous for photographing!

EG Wow said...

What fun! It reminds me of "fun houses" at carnivals where the mirrors change you shape in dozens of ways. :)
