This sort of setup, a pair of BIG mirrors,is to be found in many 'hands-on' science exhibitions, and it's the perfect egotist's trip, because you can see lots & lots of lovely images of YOU, stretching away to infinity.

I've got a few attempts at pictures of this somewhere, and if I can find them, I'll post them. It's better to try it yourself, though.

Canna, toning is an absolute snap with Photoshop! I deserve no praise for it other than learning where to find both the photo filters and duotones on the menus.

Alan, you have far more confidence in me than I deserve. Believe me. There's been more wasted breath than seems possible trying to explain electricity to me, which as everyone knows comes from an advanced alien race in outer space.

With those mirrorsthat faceeach other, my question involves not standing between them but, instead, somehow managing to observe what's happening to the light that's bounced back and forth between them. Odd, but in a way, the question sounds like something out of quantum physics, which as we all know, is of even greater alien origin than electricity.

Dale, PM me if you do try it and if you post the result. I have the feeling there are any number of ways of using a mirror, and I'd love seeing your take on it.
