Multiple Mirrors of Edinburgh

I know I always say this ... . . but, you REALLY must click on this photo to
view large. I adore photographing mirrors which reflect other mirrors for
a rather endless bounce of ongoing play, and this was the ultimate
opportunity.
Some of you may remember this image from a previous post on my favorite
(and Very Red .. .) hotel in Edinburgh, Scotland: Prestonfield House.
For a another visit to this small gem, do go HERE to refresh your memory.
Especially if you'd like to hop from the New York Red
of our evening at the Gramercy Park Hotel to a Scottish experience.


Just to the left of the main building .. . down a stone walk &
across a green velvet lawn .. . you'll find a circular stone building
which started life as the original Georgian stables.
Today it serves as a wondrous ballroom whose walls are draped in
red velvet with a series of ornate gold mirrors circling the entire room.

Let's don our kilts and dance the the night away.... . .


And, don't forget to glance over your partners' shoulder
to catch the sparkling reflections in all those golden mirrors ,
before you head back to your cozy room at dawn.

I love Edinurgh so much. I like how the Royal Mile tapers as you clim the hill towards the castle. Such a fairytale feel.

I see what-looks-to-be a fabulous chandelier juuuuuust hiding out of sight in that mirror. I hate chandeliers that tease.

I had never read the other post before (it was before my blogging days)...ask me if I want that lamp being held by an arm and hand alá Cocteau!

Having quite a bit of Scottish blood in me, I certainly enjoyed this! :)

A new place to add to my list of places to see. Thank you!

Heh... regarding your endless reflection statement, when I was younger I used to open the medicine cabinet (which was mirrored) so that it reflected the main bathroom mirror.

I'd literally sit there and try to count how many reflections I could see.

Strange. Almost like watching a fire.

I've been there!! I don't have a lovely photo of it because I attended an event in the ballroom and drank too much to take any photos. Thanks for bringing back happy memories of Scotland!
