I took this photo months ago and passing the second-hand furniture stall in our small, local street market earlier today I noticed that, while mirrors have come and gone in many shapes and sizes, they still have the painted bedhead. I guess it's become a kind of unofficial signboard for the stall holder, like the long-ago symbols of all the different trades. I like that: in the city, in the midst of so much flux, this solid, bright pink object hanging around and acquiring significance.
This seems to be a sideways glance into the door to another universe.
Fascinating shapes, colours, textures and reflections...
