    Question A trivia question.

    When we look at ourselves, why do we seem to look different in a photograph, than when we see ourselves in a mirror?

    The same reason unconscious and dead people feel heavier than people who are still animate.

    because in a photograph, we stand still, and the image is generated and captured by a machine (photocamera) and when you look at yourself in the mirror, you get a perfect image of yourself, and you move, and it's live

    Because the camera steals your soul; mirrors just turn your soul over to the dark side.

    Tin ear came very close to answer, but rest of you all are hilariously off

    The answer would be that in a mirror, we seeing ourselves in reverse. But in a photograph, we see ourselves the way other people see us (from front)
