after a while, it all began to swim before my eyes

My second post today is from my friend Kate Mellersh, whose other life as an editor comes through in this image.

after a while, it all began to swim before my eyes

The compositional interest in this image is in the natural mirrored diptych, with the divider perfectly placed over the golden ratio. Additionally, there is a sense of disconcerting depth and un-balance created through the angle of the main subject: there is clear perspective in the pattern of the keys, without any loss of focus. This, however, is offset within the reflection where everything appears blurred and distorted (oh, the joy of matt screen glass).

Simple, and balanced (in a disturbing sort of way).
