Self-portrait by Google Street View Car, 2015.

Nice one Keith!

so how did you get the image from Google?

You could capture the screen, I guess?

It's a screen capture.  A clue: The color profile listing in the EXIF on the jpeg mentions 'NEC PA 271', which is my desktop monitor.

so, you Googled their posting of them shooting you shooting them? A genuine "You can't make this stuff up" event. Great story, Keith!  8)

I had already made an adapter for my 55mm f/1.2 CRT-Nikkor to the Z cameras, now found it could do double duty by providing the mount for a Kyoei 35mm f/3.5 lens which already had been converted to 42mm focusing mount. A quick test with my full-spectrum Z6 shooting the darkness outside indicated the lens did focus to infinity and also showed how IR can be reflected off window panes. As we have triple glazing, lots of doubled lines as well in this not entirely planned "selfie".

Birna and her Nikon in a floral setting (well, sort of, flowers are artificial, I regard myself as genuine, though).

D500, 17-55/2.8 Nikkor, awful mixed illumination :(

For those unfamiliar with my part of the US, the town of Whitehall, NY just over the line from me claims to be a haunt of Sasquatch (AKA Bigfoot).  I was out behind the barn hunting for rusty resources a while ago, and spotted this strange creature.  Like all proper Sasquatches, it confounds precise focus.

Self portrait with a smartphone, a camera I always carry
I don’t like selfies but in this case I found the light very interesting and unusual, light from a kind of fluorescence source

In order to avoid cracking the lens, I let the camera be between me and my mirror-reflected image. The flash created a third eye...

Was trying out a Zeiss Distagon 50 from a Hasselblad, no connection between camera and lens apertures, manual mode, had to correct heavily in PS.

I don't have any selfies, this is as far as I will go...

Apparently my new phone has a "Selfie" button which when pressed, made this :)
