Broken by ElisabethAnna Broken by ElisabethAnna
interpret this one as you wish.

I've gotten a few questions about the heart, and no, it isn't photoshopped in. I cut out a paper heart and then put something behind it to hold it up. What you see is an out-of-focus reflection of it.


I never expected so many people to like this one. Thank you :)

I was looking for broken mirror pics to feature in a "superstitions" themed prompt and this one stood out for me because 1) it's very pretty and nicely executed, and 2) it can have several interpretations. I like how you can interpret it as "broken mirror -> bad luck" but also as a broken heart, and perhaps even as one being the result of the other. Not to mention other interpretations, such as broken or damaged emotions, sheltering a heart, only the reflection of a heart, etc.
Very interesting piece!!

i adore how this could mean broken love or a person whose heart is trapped behind a cold demeanor that is slowly breaking.

Hi! I love your pic.
I'm a young filmaker from Spain and I shoted this summer a little shortfilm called "All my Loving". I think your picture is perfect for the poster because the story is about the broken love and you are expressing so many important things with that single pic. Can I use it?

Thank You!

PD: I'll be glad to send to you a dvd copy with english subtitles, when it will be finished.

I like this one...

I just found out my ex-girlfriend slept with two guys then broke up with me and went out with another... Funny how she's said forever...

Laughable I know.

But this picture appeals to me right now. :)

Ahh. Yeah, it can really suck. Don't worry. I just got dumped a few months ago and I found out that he was lying to me for about a month and a half and leading me on the whole time before I had to move. Then right after I got here, he called me up and said I wasn't worth waiting for.

Sucks how those things happen..
