While trying to find what to shoot for this challenge, someone very close to me had passed away just last year due to this horrible drug. He had completed 5 years of rehab and just a week later, relapse, and overdosed that same night. Unfortunately, when I asked him about the significance of using Mirrors when doing this drug? He simply stated, it's the happiness you see when you see yourself. If he only saw the sadness of those he has left behind.

good attempt here and making a point, but i think you need a more human connection. maybe if the face could be seen in the mirror?

also this mirror you used is really making the image uneasy to look at. they make mirrors specifically designed to cut back on multiple reflections that a standard mirror will produce during photography.

This truly was an interesting challenge. In this challenge, I went a totally different way. Dark, if anything. A couple of you thought that it was me that had a problem. Trust me...I don't. I wanted to try and show something that not only has affected peoples lives but that continues to affect others. I pray for those people to get the help needed to battle this demon. Because even if they think they are alone. I want them to know that there are people out there worrying about them.
