A tiny tale for Sadje’s What Do You See? photo prompt.





I don’t know about you, but sometimes a picture reaches out and grabs my attention. It happened this morning. 

It was a portrait and something about it seemed vaguely familiar. Was it the eyes? Possibly. The nose, the chin?

He looked unkempt and bore a bemused expression as if deep in thought. I was intrigued, I couldn’t seem to drag myself away.

Then I realised, it wasn’t a picture at all, it was a mirror!

I really must get a shave and a haircut.

    I am howling with laughter!!!! But on the serious side, your photo/gravatar shows a very handsome man…and I don’t hand out compliments often, so grab it while you can!😄

    PS: I’d kind of like to use your image: black hand and question mark for a prompt–would that be okay with you? Of course I’ll properly credit you for the image, etc, etc 😊

        Your generosity is much appreciated, Keith–and as your reward, I’ll let you know my real/true/legal name: Leslie😊 (We have a saying in the US, maybe you say something similar…”call me whatever name you like, just don’t call me late for supper/dinner!”)
