While this isn't the typical self-portrait of a photographer, the story behind it is irresistible: Photographer Jason Moskowitz was walking through downtown around dawn when he spotted this "sleeping rat" painted onto the side of a building. After taking a few photos of the wall, on a whim he switched on the self-timer, placed the camera on the ground and "jumped into the frame for a final shot," Moskowitz wrote in an email.

Moskowitz shot this photo with his Canon EOS D5 Mark II.
