This is a portrait photograph (see major assignment II). I didn't feel it required a caption, however I will explain how I took the photograph. I had the camera switched to manual. I turned the flash off. I think I had it on the landscape setting, with a very slow shutter speed. The only light came from my window, but the long exposure time allowed the photo to soak up a lot of light. During the exposure time, I zoomed in from 18mm to about 35 mm, giving the left and right sides of the photo a feeling of movement. I focused on the mirror in front of me, which is why that the image in the mirror is more in focus than the rest - although I wish it would have come out clearer.
