Question by Tom: Mirror or photographs?
This is really frustrating to me.
If I take a picture of myself on my phone, I look completely different to how I look in a mirror.
People say a mirror image isn’t what you actually perceive yourself to look like (because everything is ‘flipped).
Yet I go to a gym (which practically has mirrors for walls), and If I’m side-by-side with somebody and look at them, then look at their reflection, both look EXACTLY the same, wouldn’t that mean that my reflection would look exactly the same to them and thus what I look at in the mirror is some-what more ‘precise’ than a photograph?

Good question. One thing to consider is that a photograph is pretty one dimensional and when you are standing in front of a mirror you can see more depth and it is live and not a moment in time.
