Science - Chemical Brother

Aaron Morello from the University of Washington was probably one of my most patient guinea pigs, I mean photo subjects. Since his work space was right next to mine, anytime he was engaged in any remotely interesting scientific activity (or playing cribbage), my digital camera was out and I was snapping shots. This particular image made my final cut because of the way Aaron's face is reflected in the glass of the fume hood, and the way the curve of his left arm anchors the bottom of the frame and leads your eye to the bottle. Also, in case you are wondering about the strange title of this shot, it was Aaron's nickname on the cruise - not only because he was always playing with chemicals, but also the name of a popular British band.
