Autoportrait - reading of caves

Funny how weird ideas come at four in the morning.

The book I'm holding is from Peter Gedei (you can order it, as well as view many beautiful photos, at his blog). The helmet on my head and the headlamp are both mine - used in climbing.

I actually started out with a completely different idea. I was going to go to sleep, but some ideas just won't leave you alone. But after trying one or two things, this was my favorite. In case you were wondering, yes, I have a thing for books. Perhaps I'll do more of these. Also, you would not believe how hard it is to find a decently neutral background - in the end, I had to take a painting of one of our walls.
