My Hump My Hump My Hump

By ChiliMan
…check it out.


So here’s the story…Sharminni, my sister-in-law, got my mum a set of frying pan and saucepan. Ohhh…shiny shiny things. They are to mikbee but garlic to a vampire. They are the Antigrot.

I grabbed the saucepan and brought it to the sideboard. Grabbed the Ixus (I was in a grabby mood, apparently) and took some pics in window light. Sorry…grabbed some pics in window light.

Magical saucepan, it is. Gave me a Quasimodal back and an elfin ear.

V2: Upon tilting the cam backward, both my hump and ear grew. Also, ‘another me’ appeared at the top and the Alter Me seems to be clasping my hands in prayer (should that be Altar Me?).

Both pics haven’t been manipulated…just cropped then Contrast increased by 20%.

**WARNING: The next upload is yet another reflective mugshot…er…panshot.**

A hoot from start to finish, Andrew, and the photos are pretty comical as well Smile Aren't natural distortions wonderful?

Still, 'tis said that every photographer should practice panning from time to time!


P.S.: Thanks for the welcome backSmile

Very creative but don't try fooling us Andrew, we know that you really do have a Quasimodo look and that elfin ear!

Love them both but V2 with the extra reflection is really special.

My frying pan and saucepans are not all that pristine Andrew.
My wife has a habit of burning them !!
She should have been Chinese.
I hear that food tastes better out of a Wok,
when it has been well burned !!
Good off beat shots.

Most amusing Andrew, I thought you'd metamorphosized into the Hunchback of Notre Dame or Peter Beardsley when I saw the thumbnail!Wink Will you be doing a series on these distorted reflections then? If you are I'd be interested to see how they pan out!Grin
