January 18

I have crumbled under peer pressure.

My Rain gallery reached Number One in the Popular Galleries.

I have been hounded about this silly pbase tradition to take a photo of yourself in the shower after you have a gallery that reaches the number 1 spot in the populars.
This is my obligitory shower shot.

I know.... more of me than you ever wanted to see ;)

I'm so sorry!

I'm new to the PAD thing, so I didn't really catch the Thursday Challenge, but in retrospect, I can attribute this photo to the inspiration of many other pbasers:

To Joe Lasker and Tamara for their excellent shower shots.
To Enny Jameson for her wonderful use of the vignette tool.
To Christina Conroy for her skillful use of a screw in macro filter when shooting water.
That is definitely a short list of pbasers who inspire me... there are too many to list here. ;)

Canon PowerShot A620
1/60s f/2.8 at 7.3mm full exif

other sizes: small medium original
