Some of the plants for this year’s garden I’ve been growing in my bedroom. I’ve dubbed these plants the VIPs, which stands for “Very Important Plants.” The close-up photographs above show how water droplets on the leaves beautifully reflect light. If you look closely, you can see the coil of the compact fluorescent light bulb reflected in the droplet.

Saturday night I was at a friends house after we filmed some A-listers who were in town for a black-tie foundation dinner. I noticed that the person had a convex mirror similar to the one I remember from the fifteenth century Flemish painting, “The Arnolfini Portrait” by Jan van Eyck (1434). I decided to try a few different angles and the photograph above was my favorite.
