@gbe: thanks very much the case is his double-bass flight case, I caught him as he was gazing out the window thinking about when he travels overseas to present his music to the world.... this shot came into existence as a meaningful photo after it was taken. the sailing boat also is about travel.
Very nice portrait.

@bluechameleon: thanks so much again for your great comments. I wanted to include the mirror as much as possible with the archway with the different shaded areas. Just window side lit. I love just using whats there. A challenge but a real joy.
