Camera: Nikon D200
Lens: Nikon AF Fisheye-Nikkor 10.5mm f/2.8G IF-ED DX
Location: The Mushroom Lounge
Date: Feb 5, 2008
Aperture: F8
ISO: 100
Shutter: 1/250th
Galleries: Humorous, Black and White
Date Uploaded: Feb 5, 2008

totally had this 1980s memory when i was shooting this.

642726.jpg

and it's way harder than you'd think to get your eye right in the middle of the magnifying glass when doing a self portrait. Yeah that's right. it's me. with a wig and a beard. don't ask.

i know this won't come close to winning, but I wanted to stand apart from what i'm sure will be a few hundred fabulous eye macros :)

ha you can't hide from me, recognised you instantly, you'd have to grow a few
more wrinkles to match the 1980's shot.
congrats on the yello, well deserved.

Clever!
Perfect example of why I don't do SP's - who's to compete with this kind of creativity?
Grats on the Yellow!
