I had a couple of shots that I was considering putting up earlier today, but the more I looked at them the less I liked them. So, I decided to go with this one instead (taken last night before I went to bed). It's shot through what amounts to a large crystal ball (about four inches in diameter) that's part of an instrument for tracking the sun's path (I think). I came across it in a colleagues office and thought I'd borrow it on the basis that it might make for a few interesting shots. This one though doesn't really use it to its best advantage; i.e. it's not overly clear how this shot was taken (and my wife thinks it just looks as though our youngest daughter has a deformed head – which she doesn't). I have a few ideas for some shots that I'll probably put up later in the week that will give you a better sense of what this 'device' is like.
