Discovering the lonely planet.

As leslie was taking about me photographing from the other world in the previous post.

I shot this on my newly discovered planet, you can also the see one of its satellites on its darker side. I often wander on this dull crimson red colored planet looking for something but i dont know what actually it is and why am i lookin for it.
Despite of pluto being demoted from its planet status recently, i guess we still have 9 planets in our solar system.
Hope to see you all (a-3)s on my planet sometime. (If you are bringing any guests, please send RSVP email using the contact page above)

Whoever missed my previous post, the unreal thing in that really real photo is the 'reflection'. If it was a reflection in a mirror you would normally see text on the camera written backwards, which was'nt the case here. But it is written just normally like what you see with your eye directly or as if you see it in a reflection of a reflection. I just flipped the photo horizontally after post processing ;-) for the viewer to feel as if i was taking the viewer's photo.
The spinning effect around the round mirror is radial blur filter in

Hope everyone reading this is fine and comes back to the real world
from the abstract world. :-)

I think the abstract world would be a better place to live, isn't it?
...and about the unreal thing in previuos post, it was too ordinary to understand it :D.
like my photoblog titile :"...Learn to see ordinary" I should learn it.

Brilliant idea... we had a topic in my work photo contest a while back called "Mini-Landscapes" where we tried to simulate a grand landscape with a smaller scene. You take this to a new level with "Mini-Planetscape" and executed it perfectly!

In case you are curious, this was my entry for the mini-landscape. I shot it in my bedroom with a blanket and lamp.

Srini, We have very similar hobbies of traveling in space. Did you ever come across my Planet Aminus3 ever on your journey? Please stop by sometimes for a cup of tea in your next trip.
