The Setup:

+Al Warren has tagged me in the Five Day Quest virus/pyramid scheme. Take one photo of whatever is going on in your life and post it. This kinda ties in with my One Second Per Day video - yes, my video today is of me doing this shot.

I set up the tripod and triggered three x 5 second exposures of myself using the remote shutter.
