Ian's Rant 04 – The Mirror Conundrum
Ian ponders why his image in a mirror isn't also upside down.
We all know that when we look at something in a mirror, the image is back to front. Hold some writing up to a mirror and it reads backwards. So why isn't it also upside down?
This came to me while having my digital camera take a self portrait for this site. I had to flip the image horizontally, but not vertically. Hmmmmmmm.....
(By the way, I worked out the answer to this one, but I figured I'd give you something metaphysical to ponder anyway).
