Just silly me looking at our nonexistent neighbors, at least I realized how dusty the blinds were.

Thanks for the comments and score, didn't think my mug could ever pull a 7+.

Wow! Fascinating shot. BW is once again unbelievably good and I love the reflection in the crystal clean glass (and frames).
Btw the blinds make a great animation when I'm scrolling up and down with the mouse wheel :).
I will check this photo next time I'm in your area ;).

A good idea, clever title and very well executed. I really like the post processing. You are a good actor, I dig the expression on your face. :-)

Ha! My mother's favorite hobby! I'm sure if I showed her this image...she'll want to borrow those ultra cool shades! I'll reluctantly congratulate you on 4th place. Because, in all honesty, I always feel the green ribbon is the worst to get!

I used a mark, the first shot was slightly off so I used manual focus and adjusted a bit, got lucky, it usualy takes a lot more than two attempts.

Accidental maybe, but the reflection in the glasses as he peers through the blinds just makes this a brilliant portrait - almost candid in it's execution. Very nicely done and a Top Five for sure.
