Otto, this is my favorite photograph of yours yet.
What a well conceived and produced image. You really know your stuff and have a great way of setting a scene. Great B&W toning...and the items that we get to see or just great - there's a little tongue in cheek humor, but really this is a beautiful image. Very "contemplative" and also very interesting. It's great to see where you are sometimes when you're not working on your restoration.
Thanks all for your surprising comments. I really didn't expect much with this. I was sitting there thinking about what I could shoot for the day's entry when I thought, "how about shooting me thinking about what I'm going to shoot?".
Yes, I set up my trusty little Slik Sprint Pro II, and set the timer to 15 seconds to allow me time to sit back down and "strike a pose". What's funny is that I had a similar shot on my monitor that I didn't like, so took this one.
Thanks again for all your comments. You're too kind.
