the case of the mysterious mirror


This fantastic photo by Coleen Yancy reminded me of one of the strangest things that I own...



a vintage mirror that has embedded within it an illustration of a woman leaping off a diving board. It was really hard getting a good photo of it. I had to photograph it at an angle, otherwise my face would be looming in it, which would kind of ruin the shot...



I have no idea where it's from, how old it is, or why the woman is diving while wearing a dress. It's just a cool little mystery.
