Portrait of the Artist

When it gets dark outside one’s own reflection in the window is brighter than the scene outside. This is a phenomenon familiar to anyone who has traveled on a train at nighttime. What is peculiar about this reflected image is that it is selective: certain colors, and wavelengths of certain polarizations, are preferentially reflected. It is interesting to observe the effect this has on the image.
