suppose I should say how it was accomplished...

Single exposure. Glass display cabinet with glass shelf (covered in music merchandise). Rested my head on glass top of cabinet and held camera resting on glass shelf underneath pointing up to my face. The shot consists of my face and the aluminium ceiling with the glare of a fluro lamp above. The images of the camera, my arms & hands & the merchandise are reflected off the underside of the glass top. There is also a fluro (kind of an elongated snoot) inside the cabinet facing down in front of my chrome dome. This was the better of about 5 shots, I didn't want to have to keep shooting and make the choice difficult. Grained in Nik FX and film filters in Alien Skin Exposure 3. The fuji X100S is such an amazing piece of kit. Having the fixed lens is a blessing.

Voted earlier, bumping it up, and coming back to comment.

This composition has such a surreal vibe to it! The B&W, the image grain, and the double exposure of disconected hands holding the camera in front of the man with the intense stare has a 1940's film noir meets sci-fi atmosphere. It makes my mind wander wondering what is the story going on behind the mind - what images does he capture and is he a traveler of sorts either in time or dimensions?

This is just cool. It feels like it could be the cover to the DVD for a spy movie.
