November Mirror, Mirror Challenge Submission from Robert P.

"This picture was taken in the men's bathroom of a German restaurant this summer. There was this wacky slide show advertising that was rear-projected into the bathroom mirror so I wanted to capture this strange, curious, insidious? form of advertising on camera. So I took a picture of yours truly. Just as I did so, the VIP advertisement came up in the mirror. Coincidence? In my own eyes, I have always viewed myself as a very unimportant person. But the mirror held a different view of me. So my own reflection contains a commentary from a foreign source that was simultaneously outside me and inside me. My moment of Zen for the day." -- Robert P.

  1. Welcome to our forward-moving, reflective world, Robert P.! So glad you are contributing. Yes, I think it's always a good thing to add another viewpoint of ourselves into the total picture. I can take myself down in a minute if I don't "add the other picture". Good observation. I second it!
