I was trying to make sense of some photos like the one below. now I don’t think its a wall mounted cabinet, i think its a chest that sits on the ground and the top lid opens up, but rotating the photo isn’t enough. No matter what direction I rotate it still looks like a wall cabinet!!!!!! Should I lay my phone on its back and look down at the screen from above to unlock this complex puzzle? or should the user have downloaded some futuristic holographic program to rotate it the right way?

but if you sit too far back you’ll have to hold your phone above your head and then it will look like a ceiling mounted chest in one of those MC Escher paintings

Too deep for me… this time!


Backing, slowly [so as not to draw attention] out of this room.

I quit making cabinets like the top pic! Lid kept hitting me on the head. Also the bottom, as lid kept smashing my fingers.

Put it in you’re left hand and rotate CCW.

Maybe I would suggest taking three pictures. one with the phone upright, the other two with the phone turned sideways (left and right). Insert each picture, and hit the preview button to see which way the picture comes up upright. Then delete the off pics. Good way for a future reference to do it. If I’m not using a regular digital camera, I have to turn my phone 1/4 turn clock wise to come up properly to the LJ site. Even though my computer auto corrects to the upright picture.

Are those crotchless panties in the bottom of that chest? If it was just turned a little better I’d be able to tell….

Is this what they mean by Deja Vu?

a real camera?
I use a (old? 7.2 Mpxl) Sony Cybershot camera.
I nevertheless have to edit the pictures taken in portrait mode so that they don’t come rotated on LJ.

The first picture of Bandit is obviously the result of an unusual framing. Which illustrates his comments:
” Sometimes … sideways just means viewed from one side…”

“Should I lay my phone on its back and look down at the screen from above ”
Yes put it on his back on the table and push it to your right as if you were looking at the plate of the guest to your right.

Just remember bandit... OB1 met his demise from a sideways blow from a light saber!
