After reading my morning paper, I casually tossed my reading glasses on the light table next to my chair.

A quick glance amused me as I realized how the glasses had landed on a book I was reading, so of course, grabbed the camera and took a shot. Slight crop and a bit of WB correction is all that was done.

The whole idea of taking a picture of a picture, but with something 3D... could prove interesting!

Thanks Jeff, it struck me as funny and serendipitous as well. Hence, the title.

It's true, Teresa and Peter. When I tossed them down, that is where they landed and that's what gave me the idea to grab the camera. I did have to slide them to the left about 1/4 inch to make them line up a bit better.

Thanks, Tony.

Thanks Kristin. By the way everyone, if you want to get really good speed light pix, get the book by the auther that is on the bottom book.
