Sean Williams, age 11, has Severe Spastic Quadriplegic Cerebral Palsy. He is enrolled in the Military Exceptional Family Member Program through his stepfather, TSgt David Bailey. While his wheelchair was being loaded on the ramp to the family van, I saw I could get this reflection symbolizing Sean's despondent role as big brother to Nathan, age 7. I placed my flash on the opposite of the van window to place emphasis on Sean as the main subject.

A wonderful image with emphasis expressed perfectly. Using the reflection technique makes me feel as though we get a brief, very brief glimpse into their world.
