Pentax K-1 is not just full-frame DSLR. It is a mighty teleportation appliance.

Inside out
Ooh you got me inside out
Oh inside out
Oh inside out
Now everybody's got me running round, up and down
And here I am going out of my mind
But I won't lose sight of all the, the things I'm looking for
They're coming to me and I'm taking what's mine
Inside out
Ooh you got me inside out
Oh oh oh inside out
Oh inside out
Inside out

Objects in a reflection may be better looking than they appear.

With only 12 hours left in the contest, there are several captions tied for 2nd, with NoelCMN holding a slim lead over the other entrants. There is still time to vote until MIdnight tonight, whereupon I will announce the winner on the forum and via PM. The winner will then host the next caption challenge....Thanks everyone who has participated thusfar.

Since we have a 3 way tie between 'Aslyfox', 'Villian of Oz' and 'NoelCmm' -- the moderator must make the call. All three were good, but it is NoelCmm that wins this challenge, followed by a close 2nd to "Villian of Oz". I will notify Noelcmm and he will create the next caption contest. Congratulations.

As for my caption, I thought of "Mind over matter"--or "So this is what tripping feels like". Anyway, looking forward to see what Noel comes up with. Cheers
