This shot was taken through the same device that I used for this one, and I was going to try and explain what it is again but there's a photograph of one on photorealistica, which will probably make more sense than another garbled description.

As for this shot: it's one of two that I'm putting up and I'm reasonably pleased with how it turned out. That said, I would have preferred a little more detail in the inverted portrait, but on the whole I think it's ok. Tomorrow's, on the other hand, is a portrait of my wife and think it's quite a lot better (though do tell me if you disagree).

Oh, and after today I'm away until Friday. I have shots to put up, providing I can get internet access to post them, but I wont have any time to respond to comments. I'll try to catch up when I get back, but by then there'll only be six days till we move (fingers crossed) so things may be a bit hectic for a while.

Nice job. This one sort of reminds me of that M.C. Escher sketch, "Hand With Globe" or something similar.

The page came up and I said "Hi Escher!" The black and white definitely adds to that effect. Glad to see you're having fun in the middle of a move.

Wow, this is really quite trippy. Definitely would be an interesting contribution to the Mirror Project =)

Hope all goes well with the packing and moving. . .

Hand with the Globe comes to mind, too -- Very nicely done... I like the article on Photoblogs -- really nice.
