A vortograph!

As the challenge for Abstract Thursday is reflection(s) I decided to try my hand at making a vortograph.

Vortograph, the first completely abstract kind of photograph, composed of kaleidoscopic repetitions of forms achieved by photographing objects through a triangular arrangement of three mirrors.  (google)

This is an interesting link.

I had bought a pack of 3 in square mirrors some years ago but never tried it.  I simply taped the mirrors together and hand held them in front of the lens.  It would be useful to have a few extra hands for this!!
