Apparently this stunning self-portrait by Helmut Newton is about to go up for auction:

Helmut Newton, Self-Portrait with Wife and Model, Vogue Studio, Paris, 1981

I want it.

I have been thinking about mirrors quite a lot lately (possibly due to the recent deluge of Snow White-related stuff). Did you know that during the Renaissance, French officials kidnapped some Italian mirror-makers in order to glean their mirror-making secrets? Someone make a movie of it!

Anyway I'm thinking of buying a nice little compact mirror.

This one's a little grotesque but, you know, I kinda dig that.
