I love the idea of telling a story with a single picture and this challenge was the perfect opportunity to try a new technique (new to me!) that I have really wanted to try. (Inspired by ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', '/') + 1) . ' toddhead see his pic here:' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/0-999/275/120/118086.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/0-999/275/120/118086.jpg', '/') + 1) . ' (Todd did a double exposure; I had to one up him. I did a triple)

Unfortunately, I have a limited budget for lighting (no alien bees :() and had to use my little HP PhotoSmart camera for the flash. But it served the purpose, especially since I was turning the photo into a negative. I did make a conscience effort to get the right colors where I wanted them. (For instance, where you see white on my face is actually black on the inverse photo.)

I look forward to your comments. More comments on the subject matter after the challenge.

I would feel honored that my picture inspired yours, but to be honest, your picture really gives me the creeps. I think you have some issues you need to deal with.
