Never A Backward Glance
This was just a random shot taken a few days ago. I had my camera in my hand because I had been photographing a variety of flowers. I still hadn't put the lens cap on when I got into the car, so I fired off four frames at random and this was the best of them.
I chose this because the lens of the camera looks so clear and you can actually see a crisp image (in the lens) of what is 180 degrees behind me, with the sky and a couple of trees standing out, even in this low-resolution version of the original.
And because I've shot this straight into my rear-view mirror, you can see that the white writing on my camera lens has been reversed. But you noticed that, didn't you?
This is an interesting shot, because I never actually wear sunglasses when I have a camera in my hand - simply because I want to see the true light conditions exactly as they are. But I generally have my sunnies on when I drive (yes, they are a huge help because of the polarising effect in bad weather) so I must have just put them as I got into the driver's seat.
I'm guessing I must have put the Ray-Bans on and then turned my attention to the camera, to put the lens cap on and put the Pentax into the case. So this is probably a very rare shot - me with a camera in my hand - and taken while I have my sunnies on.
Finally, here's a question for you. I have only ever posted one photograph of myself on my blog where my face is fully visible - which probably makes me a bit like Wilson the faceless neighbour in the hit TV show Home Improvement. There have been a couple of shadow photos, two or three reflection shots, but only one on a blog post where you can see my head and shoulders.
Do you know which post contains the photo?
