Using the Lensball in a New Way

I've had one of those Lens Balls for a while now. They're usually used for a different take on landscapes, and any time I've seen them, its been the ball placed in some location at sunset. I'm not into (doing) landscape photography, so never wanted to try these ideas. The reason they don't work too well with people is because it really really warps their face, and generally thats not too flattering. Sooo I said screw it and tried it on this shoot. Theres two 2 foot modifiers on either side, and the picture is flipped upside down so that the model appears right side up. The happy accident of this shoot was the ball catching those two lights and for an idea on the fly I'm happy with the results and the ideas its leading to!
