Sooo..... how many hours a day do you spend upside-down? No, not mentally, physically. Because how else......?

Fantastic idea! You must be using frequently those Teeter's inversion tables:)
It's a picture I periodically recall long after seeing it and reminds me what creative photography is about.

Hehe. I'm dizzy. I so wanted to post to this challenge but work got too busy and I forgot. Sounds like a good topic for CI next time you win there.

great picture...so glad you got the ribbon...this is the 2nd time that I've missed it by .006? or less...*double sigh*...need to do something to kick it up a notch...but given my picture I don't know how I could have "kicked that up"...

This is extraordinary. The clock and the infant portrait both speak to mortality, conventionally. Were you aware of this, or did they happen to be the only roundish objects of a size that you had handy? Regardless, very well seen!

ETA: Bumped to 10, one of my two 10's. Good luck to you.

heh. I never would have thought of spinach. I like how you turned the clock and picture upside down too.

That is great. Love the upside down and the fun title.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

I have enough trouble looking at things right side up to see faces but you turn things upside down to get us to see into a topsy-turvy world:-) Very creative work that uses the whole room to make the smiling face! Love how the chairs act as the eyebrows or eyelashes (whichever way you want to look at it) for the circular eyes of the clock and the oval picture. BW was most definatly the best choice to go with for the (most likely opposing) colors of all teh objects would have been distracting. The smiling face is much more recognizable this way. Not to keen on the title, but I can see what you are alluding to with the teeth as the window panes and the foliage outside as the 'food' stuck on the teeth.
