Just a bit of fun. Ever wondered what the world looks like to a piece of film? Well, now you know.

Very good. Hadn't thought about it from the perspective of film. Nice shot.

Ferny, if there were a prize for both uniqueness and creativity, you'd have just won it. Whatever made you think about doing this? Yeah, yeah, I know--we all get alien thoughts now and thenthat seem impossible to trace.:idea:

Thanks for the complements, I really wasn't expecting them.

I was handling my film SLR last night, setting different apertures and seeing how big the hole was on different lenses. I don't know why I thought of doing this.
I never knew images were upside down on a negative. Perhaps it's my naivety or because I've only handled them when I've got my prints back from the processors. :O

The camera sees just the way our eyes see--upside-down. It takesa brain to turn the image the right way around, but we aren't born knowing how to see. It's a learned activity. Don't think about this for a long time. It makes a person start questioning the very essence of reality.

Barb, you're right! I've often blown my own mind thinking of these concepts - and about how what we see is really just reflections bounced off the items and manipulated by light. Wow. The mind really wobbles!:shock:
