Tricky but I think I found the photographer... :D

Interesting enough, there's a mirror on the end wall of the right elevator and your legs below the knee line show with a couple of car tires that belong to a parked car, presumably. No mirror on the end wall of the left elevator, I suppose, because the doubled depth is missing in that one.

Nice shot and neat elevator car park, Henry. :)


Oh boy, you are a master, a real Eagle Eye! :) I didn't notice until I had the photo on my computer. Yes, there is a mirror in the elevator. Actually, there is some distortion on the mirror because in the full size photo it looks like I have 2 titanium prosthetic legs -- they look like sticks. :lol: I was wearing shorts, but the ol' legs are pretty normal. :)

Note also that in front of each elevator there is a turnstile so that the car can be turned around in the small space.

Thank you, Henry! :D

And, yes, I noticed the turnstile almost immediately; efficient use of ground floor area and smart design move, especially for such small spaces. :)
(as a side note, your legs looked normal to me, no prosthetic look there. Pretty much Henry's travel feet-selfie that we saw him take on many occasions. : ) You had at least one shot in every city you visited, even Istanbul.)

Good photo-puzzle. : )) Thanks.

This thread is supposed to be inadvertent inclusions or evidence of the photographer, but just for Yildiz because she brought it up here is one from today that violates my own rules. :lol: As Saul Alinsky wrote in rule #4 in his book Rules for Radicals: A Pragmatic Primer for Realistic Radicals:

4. “Make the enemy live up to its own book of rules.” If the rule is that every letter gets a reply, send 30,000 letters. You can kill them with this because no one can possibly obey all of their own rules. :lol:

Good one, Henry! Then it's a good thing that you're the maker of your own rules and you only answer to yourself. But, it's still us who get the benefit of good photography by Henry... : )

I'll give this one a shot. If you look at the reflection in the window there I am.

Ken,
Nicely saturated colors. You can turn this into a beautiful art work by giving it Hayes Island Cafe Treatment.
You can down load the action from http://www.retouchpro.com/forums/software/2767-actions-brushes-swatches-styles-textures-etc-7.html?postid=39210#post39210 and give it a try. Read the thread for more details.

A couple of really neat pictures. Always good to break a few rules from time to time, Henry :)

Love that car Ken - what a colour!

This definitely is not a case of inadvertent evidence of the photographer, but I am not sure if there is a better way to categorize it.

This was taken last month at the Swarovski Crystal museum / gallery / store near Innsbruck, Austria. I was inside the Crystal Dome, which is a multi-faceted crystal hemisphere.

I like this topic. :)

Henry, what's the story behind your last photo??? :D

Shooting in rooms with walls covered with mirrors is always a challenge.
This is the “I thought that I hid rather well, but forgot that mirrors will reflect the reflections of other mirrors” shot.

Dizzying, trying to find you in some of the shots with repeats and multiple reflections, Sig ! :D Fine photo puzzles…
:D You even stand like a balet dancer when shooting standing… Good posture and trained feet positions ! :D (Kidding)

Well done!

Thanks for sharing,

I am still not sure how I happened to be in that photo. My recollection is I had brought my Minolta X-700 with 50mm f1.4 to the office to take a few photos of Japanese co-workers and to walk around at lunch around Yurakucho and Hanzomon in Tokyo (where my office was located). I must have accidentally tripped the shutter though while fooling around with the camera. :)

You have lots of interesting shots!
