Mirror

A mirror is an object that reflects light in such a way that, for incident light in some range of wavelengths, the reflected light preserves many or most of the detailed physical characteristics of the original light, called specular reflection. This is different from other light-reflecting objects that do not preserve much of the original wave signal other than color and diffuse reflected light, such as flat-white paint.

So smooth!

You almost can't even tell the image is reflected in water because is so smooth! Almost looks like one!

Non- reversing mirror

This is an image of a non-reversing mirror, meaning the image looks how you would appear from that angle. This is done by merging to mirrors at a 90 degree angle. there is a company that sells these types of mirrors called true mirrors

The Bean in Millennium Park, Chicago

The coolest mirror of Chicago. You can take many great pictures at different angles.

Split Mirror

Better Living Through Design says: "Need a mirror? Consider this one with two mirror halves spliced and bent to give you different perspectives. There are three positions to consider, so you’ll have fun figuring out which angle catches the best light or spot in the room. Could be a clever choice for a powder room or other small spaces." www.betterlivingthroughdesign.com

What color is a mirror?

Contributed by Lois Tan

I saw this on facebook and thought it was interesting: TWO WAY GLASS IMAGE MIRROR IMAGE TEST Just conduct this simple test: Place the tip of your fingernail against the reflective surface and if there is a GAP between your fingernail and the image of the nail, then it is GENUINE mirror. However, if your fingernail DIRECTLY TOUCHES the image of your nail, then BEWARE! IT IS A 2-WAY MIRROR! "No Space, Leave the Place" So remember, every time you see a mirror, do the "fingernail test." It doesn't cost you anything. REMEMBER. No Space, Leave the Place:
