Netflix/Roku – that’s how we relax these days. No live TV or cable for us – although kids like watching PBS on OTA channels 🙂

As I had few minutes to kill this afternoon I was going over other ROKU channels besides Netflix and noticed this reflection on our coffee table. So I had this shot using Nikon 50mm.

Now looking at my monitor, I could see these eggheads smiling at me and I felt  Who is an egghead now?
