The Best Photo My Camera Took For Me

Challenge #1 in the Technology Enabling Art series. Hosted by ProfHankD.
Challenge has finished
This challenge is for photos that you caused to be taken, but not by looking at a viewfinder or live display and pressing the shutter button when you wanted the picture taken. It might be that you set the self timer or used a wireless remote control so you could be in your photo, or it might be that the camera was triggered by motion detection to capture lightning (as many CHDK users do) or wildlife on a trail, or perhaps you selected one of a long sequence of shots automatically taken by a head-mounted sport camera or a camera hanging down from a kite.

Well, the technique should be pretty obvious, you can spot the... murder weapon on the bottom right of the pic, a D300, which was fired from an angle towards the mirror, using the 2 sec timer and... holding my breath while trying not to move! Generally speaking I consider myself the least photogenic person, it's hard to get a passable pic of me from a score, no matter who shoots em, but this one came up pretty interesting I reckon, what do you think?
