You can’t see it in this picture, but his name is on the mirror in decals. It adds a nice since of "barness" to it and it makes me happy to look at it it. I’m sure he would have approved.

Assignment 2. Mirror/Reflection. A great, though challenging, compositional element is the mirror. Use reflections to complement your subject. Anyone doing a self-portrait in a mirror will be tagged “phoned in.” All other reflections are fair game.
