Friiiiiiiiiiiiiiday!!! Today was a better day. This photo not only gave me a headache to take, but a headache to edit! It probably wasn't one of my wisest ideas to try and take this photo at 8am, no breakfast in my tummy thankfully, but blerrrrrgh! As well as rollercoasters, I don't do lying down the stairs! The sooner I get my new remote the better as the running and positioning for this was so hard, hence the blurry hands....10 seconds is a very shot amount of time!

Anyway, in other news....errrrrrm, I'm not sure I have any other news. Makes a change for once I suppose!
Love love love this!
February 17th, 2012  
Haha .. Great shot! It's amazing what you get up to, to get a great shot

Might have been a nightmare to take, but it was worth it! I'm loving your tags :)
February 17th, 2012  
How in the world did you pull this off without breaking something! Such a great creative shot. You are outdoing yourself. In the thumbnail I thought you were under water! Love this!

@doorknee71 Really pushes you out of your comfort zone! This was not comfortable one bit!
February 17th, 2012  
Ems
@sambehindalens Thank you so much Sam! Glad you liked the tags too!
February 17th, 2012  
this is super cool and inspires me to go to the stairs now :-D Fav.
February 17th, 2012  
Ems
@ptowncook Oh that is cool if it looks like that! This was very painful to do, my head was thumping and had to lie flat on the landing afterwards to get my bearings back. Not doing that again in a hurry!!
February 17th, 2012  
Ems
@janmaki Really?! Jani....THANK YOU so much for the fav! Do the stairs too, I want to see your take on it and with in focus hands!
February 17th, 2012  
Nice knockers, no that was yesterday. Shaved the beard I see :)
February 17th, 2012  
Ems
@jasehoad THANK YOU for the fav Sir Jase! :D you are not the first person today to mention 'my beard' today!! I'm getting a complex! Haha! So when is your selfie appearing?
February 17th, 2012  
This is cool.
February 17th, 2012  
Ems
@miley89 Thank you so much Miley.
February 17th, 2012  
Yay!!! I was just going to ask you if this was a better day for you! Glad to hear it. Fun photo! :)
February 17th, 2012  
O wow this is so cool, well done.
February 17th, 2012  
Ems
@hellcat Thank you. Today had its ups and downs but there were more ups thankfully!
February 17th, 2012  
Ems
@maaikel Thank you so much. It was a pain to take but quite fun too!
February 17th, 2012  
It's kind of difficult to look good upside down, but you have managed it.
February 17th, 2012  
Ems
@carmel Hmm, even with a crinkled forehead?! Haha!
February 17th, 2012  
Ohhhh, darrrrring. Bit head rusheyyyyy. Very creative lady
February 17th, 2012  
Ems
@azza_l I still have the headache now, just looking at it makes me feel sick again....all in the name of art hey!
February 17th, 2012  
Funky shot. Love the perspective and look on your face.
February 17th, 2012  
what a great shot and idea and processing... you look like an astronaut on the space shuttle!..lol..
February 17th, 2012  
Cool shot
February 17th, 2012  
that's a great selfie for the theme, nicely done upside down theme shot
February 17th, 2012  
Fav! This is just so cool! Wow, quite a feat to get into that position in 10 secs. Waiting for my remote too, can't come early enough ;-)
February 17th, 2012  
Great theme shot!!!
February 17th, 2012  
Awesomeness :)!!!
February 18th, 2012  
makes me dizzy.
February 18th, 2012  
That a cool and fun shot. I am glad for you that your tummy was empty
February 18th, 2012  
Very cool shot! I can't imagine running back & forth trying to set it up, great job!
February 18th, 2012  
I quite like the 'running-positioning-blurry-hands-thrown-hair' version - it adds a touch of drama and madness which I think is fitting for this pose and angle. Fabulous!
February 18th, 2012  
Ems
@benthomas77 Thanks Ben! Was worth the headache in the end. Goodness, my slippers on 365 twice in one week, must be getting old!
February 18th, 2012  
Ems
@joeboxster Love your take on the shot, I've not long conquered a fear of planes, space shuttles could take a bit longer! ;)
February 18th, 2012  
Ems
@vorka Thank you so much for stopping by and for your comment :)
February 18th, 2012  
Ems
@shanne I've been thinking all week about the theme, this idea came to me when I woke in the night!
February 18th, 2012  
Ems
@bmnorthernlight THANK YOU for the fav :D This is probably the hardest photo I've taken without a remote. Good to test you to find a way round not having one but soooo frustrating too isn't it!
February 18th, 2012  
Ems
@twinsplusone Thank you Sharon!
February 18th, 2012  
Ems
@jodimuli Thank you so much Joe!
February 18th, 2012  
Ems
@bobfoto And me! Everytime I look at it, my stomach says nooooo!
February 18th, 2012  
Ems
@5unflow3r Thank you! It could have ended so badly! But it was worth it in the end!
February 18th, 2012  
Ems
@tamsg4 It was exhausting! In fact I only took 4 photos before I felt too ill and tired to run up the stairs again!
February 18th, 2012  
Ems
@thebluegnu I love your interpretation! It does look mad! Haha!
February 18th, 2012  
well, it's really not one I'm emulating - my stairs are shared and I can't see me having an undisturbed unobserved moment to try it - you've done a great job here
February 18th, 2012  
Ems
@shanne Would be funny to try though! I'd really love to try a shot in our local Sainsburys where they have those travelling floors instead of steps on escalators. Camera on the metal floor....run up then sit down. Think the POV would be really cool....but the general public scare me!!! I need my sister to come stay with me, she'd understand my madness!
February 18th, 2012  
lol this just me beam i still run and i have a remote erm somewhere total sympathy but mine was getting in a bath not pretty lol :) great shot tho
February 18th, 2012  
Wow! You're really blasting these selfies! So proud of you! :-D
February 18th, 2012  
Ems
@rainbowsnic42 Hahaha, thanks Nic!
February 18th, 2012  
Ems
@tabbycat Thank you! Just shows what you can achieve when you put your mind to it and your guard down hey!
February 18th, 2012  
YEP!! Here's to more of both for everyone!! :-D
February 18th, 2012  
Ems
@shanne THANK YOU so much for the fav! :D didn't notice until I went into my emails! Thank you!
February 18th, 2012  
Awesome selfie! Attagirl for pushing your comfort zone! Also loving the tags! :-)
February 18th, 2012  
Your so creative. Amazing shot
February 18th, 2012  
Really love this shot! So fun and cool!!! Fav for me : )
February 18th, 2012  
I'm still dizzy....
February 18th, 2012  
Ems
@jenirainbow Thank you so much Jeni! Learnt never to be afraid to try things on here, no one will ever say you look stupid....or at least not yet!
February 18th, 2012  
Ems

February 18th, 2012  
Ems

February 18th, 2012  
Ems
@bobfoto And me. I love this shot, yet I hate it cos it makes me (and you feel blergh!)
February 18th, 2012  
This is soooo cooool. I love how your hair is like fire! FAV.
February 18th, 2012  
Ems
@costaricamarc Hurray! Someone picked up on the fire thing!!! That was the first thing I thought when I saw the photo!
February 18th, 2012  
Ems
@costaricamarc And THANK YOU so much for the fav :D
February 18th, 2012  
@emmaroobers - oh and your comment brought me back here again... still woozy. (It is a very cool shot though)...
February 18th, 2012  
@bobfoto - and you should try my 8mm fisheye lens if you want a really big forehead???
February 18th, 2012  
Ems
@bobfoto Hmm, I think it is big enough without the aid of a magic lens Haha! And I pulled you back to the blergh photo again...whoop!
February 18th, 2012  
@emmaroobers - It looks different with the monitor upside down... whoop whoop!
February 18th, 2012  
Ems
@bobfoto Aaaw, now THAT is dedication! It was my intention to have it 'the right way up'...then I flipped it!
February 18th, 2012  
@emmaroobers - I think you chose well. I hope this one gets into the final 5!
February 18th, 2012  
Ems
@bobfoto I really hope so too. I really, really do. I've had a lot of people who aren't my followers comment and fav...so fingers crossed. If it made top 5 I'd have to do something truly epic to celebrate.
February 18th, 2012  
@emmaroobers - bake a cake?
February 18th, 2012  
fun!
February 18th, 2012  
Ems
@bobfoto Deal! A big number 5 cake!
February 18th, 2012  
Ems
@houdiniem Thank you Emily! It was fun!
February 18th, 2012  
@emmaroobers - Omnomnomnom!
February 18th, 2012  
Ems
@bobfoto You'd better hope I get top 5 then or no cake for you!
February 18th, 2012  
@emmaroobers - fingers are crossed, and so is everything else I have two of.
February 18th, 2012  
brilliant shot!
February 18th, 2012  
Ems
@bobfoto Thank yooooou times two!
February 18th, 2012  
Ems
@kammy THANK YOU so much for the fav, your comment and the follow, you are really spoiling me!
February 18th, 2012  
Amazing shot - very creative. It is wonderful how you find a new way of doing a selfie every day.
February 18th, 2012  
Ha, so cool!!
February 19th, 2012  
Ems
@equinoxe Some days there is more inspiration than others but this came to me as an idea when I woke up, took it and edited it before I went to work. Thought about it more, decided to change some things and set up the shot again, changed them, didn't like them and came back to this one!
February 19th, 2012  
Ems
@pocketmouse Thank you so much Teresa! Still makes me feel a bit head rushed looking at it!
February 19th, 2012  
Very cool shot!
February 19th, 2012  
Ems
@giffy Thank you so, so much! Boy am I glad I posted this :)
February 19th, 2012  
What fun shot, I think the moving hands gives a great sense of falling. Hopefully that was not the case.
February 19th, 2012  
Ems
@rumonkey Thankfully no falling occurred! It is a little reminiscent of the skydive I did now you talk of falling! Well I didn't have my hair out like that or the bloke I was strapped to would not have been amused!
February 19th, 2012  
Great creative shot for the theme!!
February 20th, 2012  
Really great shot! Nice work! I am so impressed you did that with the timer!
February 20th, 2012

February 22nd, 2012  
@emmaroobers - I protested. Did the same last year when Miss Emily Tull's photo did not make the Top 5. Booo Hisss!

I was looking at the voting page for the 'upside down' theme and saw your post. I just HAD to find your entry. I agree - this is a beautiful, quirky, and colorful shot. I know it is hard to choose from so many good entries, but this one SHOULD have been selected. Perfect. It is now one of my Favs.
February 25th, 2012  
Ems
@lowdawgs THANK YOU for finding me :) THANK YOU for your really kind comment and THANK YOU for the fav too :D
