EDM 212 Mirror Image

Had to get this one done fast, as we are leaving on vacation Thursday - of course my sun glasses are on the Must Bring list - so I took this opportunity to add them to the mirror image challenge.

BTW:
The romans. Also it was made by accident
Mirrors of polished copper were crafted in Mesopotamia from 4000 BC, and in ancient

Egypt from around 3000 BC. In China, bronze mirrors were manufactured from around 2000 BC.

Metal-coated glass mirrors are said to have been invented in Sidon (modern-day Lebanon) in the first century AD, and glass mirrors backed with gold leaf are mentioned by the Roman author Pliny in his Natural History, written in about 77 AD.

The Romans also developed a technique for creating crude mirrors by coating blown glass with molten lead.

The history of mirrors dates back to ancient times when mankind first saw reflections in a pond or river and considered it magic. Polished stone or metal was used in the first early man-made mirrors. Later glass was used in combination with metals like tin, mercury, and lead to create mirrors
