Saw this on FB and had to share it here, but I'm not really sure where to put it.

So it goes here.

Is he talking to Invisible Obama?

I love the ironing board in the background.
And the mirror image of photogs....

I love what I don't see.

I also think anyone involved in theater sees an entirely different picture.

At first look, I didn't see the photog, or the ironing board or the bags or the sink. I saw a real person, sitting, maybe praying, or at least in heavy thought.

It's just our President. No kids. No wife. It's beautiful in its simplicity. This picture will mean more to the Obama campaign than any picture Romney could ever put out. In all of Romney's pictures, he looks fake, because he has no idea what he's doing.

If Norman Rockwell were a photographer (and still alive, of course) he could have taken this picture. It's evokes the exact same emotion.

That needs to be put in the Newseum or Smithsonian stat!

That truly is a beautiful picture! The photographer should be proud.

You could also say that all the mirrors he's reflected in are somewhat symbolic... (Then again, I'm probably only thinking about that because I just spent an hour today writing about the symbolism in "Siddhartha"...)

He's clearly reviewing the notes on the counter

Maybe it's my cheap monitor, but I didn't see the notes. Besides the shadow, everything blends in.
