My reflection in a misty mirror

Posted by
MadScientist (Düsseldorf, Germany) on 29 October 2008 in People & Portrait.

Though your humble MadScientist prefers to stay behind the camera, and my 'manifesto' says that plants and stones are my favourite subjects, I think that I've found an approriate image for today's photo theme self portrait. Yep, one of the two guys in the lower left corner is me, taking a photo of an information panel on Karl Junker. And no, I'm not cross-eyed! :-P

Many thanks to Isao and dj.tigersprout for this cool campaign!

Margie from Auckland, New Zealand

Haha..I love it! Very cool self portrait...or part thereof.

@Margie: I'm glad the motto wasn't "Me, Naked." :-D

Observing from West Cheshire, United Kingdom

Cool shot, it's like an apparition coming from the historic photo. :)

@Observing: Actually it is an apparition... ;-)

Good idea for this theme using this historical page to insert your portrait.

@akarui: For God's sake the motto wasn't "Me, Naked". :)
