Do I Know You ?

November 28th, 2009 - Geneva, Switzerland

 

I've not really come across the concept of "testing" a mirror before - you know, presumably in case it doesn't reflect what you want to see - but this man went through a whole range of exercises, even going so far at one point as to wave at himself. I got a shot of that too, but unfortunately also caught the reflection of a woman wandering past in the background, so after some thought I decided to post this one as the cleaner image. Besides there's something about this I love - I think it's the impression I have that the man is leaning forward, peering in vague recognition, while his reflection seems to be standing firm, even staring back a little defiantly, with a look that says "Hey buddy, back off."
