By the magic powers of the PrimaLuce Z5, I discovered the hidden Planet 9 !! Unfortunately, I'm not the first discoverer as the ubiquitous Kilroy found it before me. His classic message 'Kilroy was here' however is encoded in Planet 9-ish as "17604".

Basically photography should be fun. Playing with light in its various incarnations is not abot lens sharpness, megapixels or what kind of software is to be preferred. One should keep that in mind.

Nice to see the March 2021 thread with an enigma.  That reminds me of COVID-19 virus!   :o :o :o

Not intentionally, I can assure you. But it struck me later, though :)

The prosaic background is that I found my 8mm f/2.8 Fisheye-Nikkor in the back of my car, so thought it should be used. That lens had gone astray for a considerably mount of time.

Small items easily get lost ;)
Good that you found it.
My guess is that it is timber.

Who needs to go to Mars when you can just look in the trunk of Birna's car? Great way to start the month. I'm thinking that it might be interesting to spend March making photographs which don't strictly match the physical appearance of the subject, or at least approach the subject obliquely.

Intriguing perspective shot, with the pointing tree, Paco.  Works great !

Thanks John, I was going back and forth with focusing on the tree or the musician... This one won by a narrow margin  :)
