Very clever Dale! And it gives me a great idea for a photo assignment in my class :) Thanks! #10494040

Thanks Deb. What is the assignment? #10494151

Jeff E Jensen 1/1/2013 11:42:00 AM

Ha! Too funny. #10494197

Debbra Bailey 1/1/2013 1:11:14 PM

The whole idea of taking a picture of a picture, but with something 3D... could prove interesting! #10494308

Dale Hardin 1/1/2013 1:37:16 PM

Thanks Jeff, it struck me as funny and serendipitous as well. Hence, the title. #10494348

Oh, sure you did Dale, you wiley old coyote.
Happy New year, old friend. #10494463

Good one Dale! #10494539

Dale Hardin 1/1/2013 4:12:14 PM

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. #10494558

Too funny! #10494823

Dale Hardin 1/1/2013 9:13:28 PM

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. #10494827

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.
