Good Day to you all at ePz

Firstly thank you all so very much for all your wonderful comments, messages and votes following my upload yesterday. Todays image was captured whilst out and about a couple of days ago.

Trying to get some sleep with dodgy ribs is like trying to sleep on a bed of nails, hence my early upload. Anyway the day promises to be warm, so I shall don the shorts, pick up a camera and go and explore.

Fot you lot, well I hope that you have a great day.

Regards Nathan GrinGrinGrin

A self portrait 'in the round': good shot, Nathan, a well spotted opportunity for something original and that bit different.

A Vivian Maier style self portrait. I would go closer and fill the frame with the silver globe to get all those great reflections and give you more prominence too.

A nice distorted "autoportrait" . This picture reminds me the years when I was teaching "Building Physics", and in the chapter about sunlight there's an architectural method that determine if a point gets sunlight all the year named solar control, which consists of superimposing a shadow mask with a solar chart, both spherical projections; building (drawing) the "shadow mask" is possible, but it's very hard and long, so we used pictures azimuthal made of a huge glass globe reflective (a kind of Christmas ball approximately 25 cm diameter), somehow like your picture
