Bored at work


(Click on the image to see the Complete picture)

Stuck at work on a Saturday night is pretty boring, here's my attempt to make the best of it.

I've tried to photograph the kitchen area of my office using the reflection off a bell. The time is 10 pm and I have turned off the overhead lights to avoid overexposure.

The interesting thing is that the reflection on the bell covers about a 270 degree view which I could never have captured otherwise. I think I just found myself a cheap fish-eye lens :)

I was making faces and laughing at all the different ways my head was getting morphed in the reflection. It was like seeing yourself in the 'house of mirrors' :)

~meyumposts~: Thanks, I'll return as soon as I can

m: We don't have a receptionist at the front desk, so the bell is there for anyone who needs asistance

sadaf: The camera name and photograph settings are accessible for each photograph, just click on the link at the bottom of each post that says "Click here for camera settings". Btw, I use Fujifilm FinePix S602Z camera.

moi & fishie: thank you, I'm glad that you enjoyed it :)

okay, so the situation is that almost everyone has commented already and i really cant think of anything over-the-top to say. i guess i'd just leave a 'smile' and that should allow you to figure out how very nice the photograph really is. so here i go: =)

plus, isnt this the first self portrait on this blog?
