Default Reflections of Fish eyed clutter

I shot this of my Fuji (with a UV filter on its lens) and allowed the Pentax to focus on the reflection. An interestingly cluttered view of my apartment.

I have rediscovered the fun of prowling around the house with a wide angle lens, guess the 50mm will be parked for a while as I explore my "flavour of the week".

Ira, Don't say I didn't warn you!

Actually, I think its a pretty cool shot.


Kev, we had a reflection challenge a while back. Seems like it was recent but, it must have been before you joined up with us. Boy, time does fly!

LOL! A creative use of your time. Until I read what I was looking at, I was a bit clueless. But it's an interesting idea - could do all sorts of things using this type of thing. Hmmm...

Tonight I got out of the apartment for a few games of darts and a few too many, so I am doing fine GW. Harriet, I am making the best of my time but I just can''t wait to see my wife Annette again. Absence actually does make the heart grow fonder.

Side note, I would like to have the sadistic fiend who designs laptop keyboards within earshot for long enough to tell him (or her) what I truly think of what they have created.

Boredom sure does make us do some strange things. This is interesting, though. I like it.

I hadn't realized Annette was not with you. Will you only have visits until June? That's got to be tough. I'm sure she misses you, too.

and, if you are near the designer of laptop keyboards put in a word for me. I've been using my laptop almost exclusively this past year and although I'm getting a little used to it, it's a pain. I really miss the numeric keypad. Especially when entering dates for genealogy. I have an add-on keypad, but it's still strange.
