I don't normally post here but I have been playing around with household items and their reflections on a mirror.
Thought I might share. Thanks for looking.

What a great idea you had and you came up with some great stuff. This is really fascinating. I like them all but the whisks are my favorite (maybe because they are my favorite kitchen utensil). I can't thank you enough for sharing these.

Thank you for your comments, Susan and Charliezap.
Now that I have returned the kitchen items to my wife, I am out of the doghouse.

I really like this kind of stuff... inventing subjects out of nothing. The mashers is my favorite. It looks like two hands beckoning for something.

Really like the effect of the stock cubes, mirror not obvious at all, looks like a floating mid air "Rubik's cube".
