I put my camera at the bottom (on top of my bag), put it on 12 second time delay and climbed up to the top. Simple as that. Of course, I took some without me, but I think it best to have a human figure at the top, even if it was me.

I had two thoughts when I first saw this: 1) I'm being held captive and he's the captor; 2) Lassie brought this man to rescue Timmy from the well (tee hee). One of those photos you can create a story from in my opinion. A little dark overall, but I guess that adds to my initial reaction.

I've looked at this several times without commenting. I like his folded hands and look of consternation. His face is in shadow, which is to be expected as you are under him looking up. I like it probably more than I should and I don't know why. It almost makes me think he has control and maybe he is sinister and you are the victim below. NOt having the circle perfectly centered adds to the interest of the shot. I think I watch way too many crime scene tv shows. LOL Good one. 8
