    Rob posted this shot in a thread 'Going Underground' - and we'd talked before about doing a thread to feature forum members in reflected self portraits.

    Prefect excuse to kick it off! :)

    Ha, good start. There's Brian showing good leg-arm support technique; Chris showing no support and no technique :p ; and me pretending not to take a photo at all...

    Here's one I did as part of a set of 52 self portraits a few years back.

    Good idea.

    Chris, that is the biggest inflatable hat I have ever seen. Where did you buy it from.

    Great idea. Will see what I can come up with. The competition is pretty hot already though!! :)

    More than a handful's a waste Dave - great comp

    Do you always wear a tie when shooting?

    I feel so underdressed now! ;)

    Great idea this is Chris...maybe it could be a current & ongoing project while were all out & about on our travels, so made it sticky for now

    Well there's a difference. We have the smartly dressed UK contingent in ties (Rob too I note) and then there's the others... ;)

    The scruffy 'colonials' Pete! :D

    I do still have a tie somewhere, but it's too damn hot to wear them here - even when I have my suit on.

    That's my excuse and I'm sticking to it! ;)

    Where's your tie Turner!! ;)

    Would that be a new car by any chance? Nice shot!

    This is taken in the giant mirror ball housing the planetarium in Bristol.
    The amount of space there appears to be around me is deceptive.
    I chose a quieter point off to one side, otherwise the background would have been filled with people lounging around watching the tennis on the big screen...
