Reflections Are Fun


Honestly, I have no idea if I’m going to come off as a creep by posing this, but I think that reflections are fun scary!

I’m not sure how many people are aware of this, but I’m going to share it anyway because it’s a thing I kindof like doing while being bored. One day, I was on the Internet seeing what new things I can learn and explore. I was getting bored. And suddenly I see an article titled “Glass Reflections in Pictures + OSINT” = More accu... Now that my friend, is something to fill my boredom with hehee

I instantly take a look at it and next thing I know I’m amazed by it. Reflections are just so cool! To be fair, I think I’ve been using reflections way before that day even, but this article taught me something new. I have to pay close attention as well. Not just with pictures, but also real life!

Some great examples of what I’m talking about:

  • The bus (at this point literally engineered to stalk others lol. Look out the window and you can see the phone of the person that’s right in front of you.
  • My computer whose left side is covered with glass. If you come in my room, you may catch a frame or two of my monitors because of the reflections from the monitor to the glass of my computer to your eyes.
  • Eyeglasses (I think there was even a study where OSINT experts tried to recover X% of the user’s screen by just looking at the reflection in their glasses though a video call - wasn’t able to find it unfortunately, but I remember the percentage was super high in some example rooms)
