Thanks Travis, It's the best kind of a self portrait of me---one where I'm not recognizable

Very nice touch to include a self-portrait in the composition; are you as rarely photographed as I?
Interesting building you picked - it must be like an upside-down pyramid or something...perfect for your needs, though.
Good work, here.

Thanks KC, I often get peculiar looks when I am photographing for these assignments

That this building is has a bank in it contributed to the curiosity of bystanders. At least no one called 911 for the guy casing the joint

Thanks Jerry, Yes, I don't have all that many photos of myself. The last formal portrait was when I was in the Navy during the Korean War, oops police action. My wife was a good photographer who preferred photographing old castles and other British historical features.

Yes it is sort of like an inverted pyramid. It houses a Credit Union and real estate business co. There are several buildings like this in Tucson. I think the shape tends to offer shade and reflects the heat away from the building. I suppose it keeps the building cooler
Norm

added comment. the shape of the building is actually an inverted Tetrahedron. or an inverted 4-sided "pyramid"

Jouko, Thanks, From where I could get the shot, it would have been difficult to keep me out of the photo.
