Cosmic Photo Challenge: Inside out/outside in/upside down

This is my contribution to the Cosmic Photo Challenge: Inside out/outside in/upside down.

I briefly considered going with photos of Woodpeckers and Nuthatches feeding upside down but thought that was rather obvious. Plus they’re doing what comes naturally, there is no upside down to them.

Then I thought about some of the photos where there’s a reflection on water that makes you wonder if the photo is the right way up. At which point I started rotating some photos 180 degrees.

These Black Eyed Susan’s look a little odd.

This coloured section of sidewalk looks slightly strange. It makes me think it’s a ceiling.

This Colpoy’s Bay sunrise looks less odd.

Finally, these variegated Hosta leaves look slightly odd.

Another test of the 25mm CCTV lens.

Having fixed the focusing mechanism of the 25mm CCTV lens I was experimenting with I went for another walk with it. The first test/walk is here.

It turned out that while the focusing mechanism now works the lens now focusses well past infinity and no longer focusses as close at it had when the focusing mechanism wasn’t working properly. I haven’t decided if I’m going to dismantle the focusing mechanism again or just leave it as it is.

Old seed pods and new leaves. It seems strange for the old seed pods to be on the plant this time of year. The swirling around the edges of the frame is very obvious in this shot.

Some interesting variegated leaves. The swirling around the edges and vignetting in the corners is less obvious in this shot.
