I can't really explain why, but for some reason this older image (from 2012) caught my eye while browsing through an open-ended gallery of casual portraits of family and friends.

Let's raise a glass to 2021 and hope it will be a good year for all.

That’s a very appropriate toast for 2020. She is very quiet and thoughtful, no joy and celebration is visible as she contemplates a less than average year, and 2021 does not promise any immediate relief.

I like the way she seems to be hiding behind the glass, but it offers no protection, and reveals more than had it not been there, creating a miniature version of her face. The eye in the glass is in the place we would expect her real eye to be, so our brain flashes between the normal and the miniature face. A nice touch.

The B&W works well and adds to the contemplative mood of the photo.
