Today, while investigating what was coming up in the garden. I discovered that a garden gazing ball is a most excellent reflecting surface for a self portrait.
I am especially fond of the Popeye bicep effect created by the ripple in the glass.
The crocus, alium, and tulips poking through the grass signal that Spring is on the way. I am equal parts delighted and fatigued by that. It might have something to do with all those leaves needing to be attended to. That chore can wait though. Right now I have more experimenting to do with the camera and the gazing ball, who knows what other special effects I will discover.
