Pat,

When I saw it on your digital processing question post, I said to myself "That's a really neat self-portrait!" But I didn't post my comment since it didn't relate to your question.
Lovely tones, and the position of the feet say something quite subtly about the person (if they had been positioned evenly side-by-side, it would lose a lot of drama).

It's a fascinating demonstration of your ability to see, Patricia. Bravo!

Intriguing perspective, but I'm glad you changed your mind about jumping!   ;)

At first, I thought I was looking at a close-up of an elephant drinking (and spilling) water. The left of the picture looks like the forehead (tilted to the right) and under the left shoe is the trunk leaking water. I did not know what the shoes were.

Finally, I saw it!

That's one of the things I like about this image: It takes more than a two-second look to "get it."
