Bored while waiting in line to ride up the Space Needle, playing with my camera and accidentally changing the WB to something I ended up liking. Shot through a grate over a skylight. Yes, the dots are a little crooked. Reminds me a little of a Chuck Close selfie, hence the title.

Had to google the name - I suppose if he turned his vision onto an architectural subject he might tend to cover it with uniform, sterile white dots instead of the organic blobs and gradients that cover his close-up, warts-and-all human portraits.

I'll have to check back and see how this effect was achieved.
