David the expat sez: "Stack Exchange Rocks!" so, let Stack Exchange be Stack Exchange.
My goal is to spend less time in my "...snow white cube containing only the bare necessities, a computer, and a large library of treatises, maps, and precise scale models*."
update 2020: Apparently I am known to sometimes "insistently believe" (sic?) my own observations, to trust common sense, and to disregard "you are not seeing what you are seeing" scenarios. If Armstrong is in the photo, then among other things it is also a photo of Armstrong. It's not a "photo of a reflection" any more than any photo generated with the use of a lens is a "photo of a refraction".
