The story behind the image

During a short trip to Kiel I encountered these Christmas Balls in a store window. They were positioned perfectly for a selfie, and so I made this fun shot with the tiny Sony point-and-shoot I had purchased earlier that year.

I like the idea that this is almost like a 3D image, the all orange color set and the fact that I appear three times (instead of just once). Yeah, you can officially call me egocentric. At times.
