This was a difficult shot to get right. I did not have anyone to snap the shutter for me so I had to use a remote trigger. I also did not know if I had the mirror angled properly and everything lined up when I took the shot (2 second delay) so I had to make many attempts, get up, check out the captures in the rear screen and reposition everything until I got an acceptable result. Also, I had to keep an open ear for oncoming trains! Luckily none appeared. ;)

Interesting comments. I had the picture validated early as some individuals questioned whether I had used the Standard rule set. Others made reference to the title (very funny comments!). Actually I drew a blank on giving the picture a title so I decided to go with that and title it I Donít Know. Apparently some people do. Thank you:)

well i don't either but it looks like an old man with a mirror on his lap on a railway track, so i will assume that is what it is.

Reminds me of "The Philadelphia Experiment".
