Self Portraits

Ok. Everyone does it at some point. The temptation is just too great. If you're working with a camera for any length of time, at some point you turn the camera on yourself and shoot away. Usually the result is off-centered, lopsided, out of focus and about ten degrees of angle. It is a fact in photography - the draw to it is just too strong.

On August 3rd, while repairing the space shuttle, Steve Robinson caved to temptation and produced the remarkable shot below. And if you think this scaled down version is cool, click here to see the hi-res shot (Provided by NASA).

I wish my self portraits turned out this well.
